Some of the grout removal tools have been discussed here:

1.    Dremel

You can use dremel as a grout removing tool in order to clean the grout easily. The good thing about this tool is that it is available at an affordable rate. You can buy this tool at the hardware store and if you can afford, order a grout removal kit along with it. This tool has the advantage that it can go as much deeper into the grout as you want by using the guide properly.

The disadvantage of this tool is that it gets overheated often. And, due to that, it might wear out very soon. According to some users, this tool does not work well with a grout whose width is less than one-eighth of an inch.
