My first thought would be for you to change your character encoding from
Windows-1250 (Central European) to Western (ISO-8859-1), but I don't think
that'll do anything for your grouting ;)

Could try this I spose ...


"Remove mold and mildew by cleaning with a dilute solution of chlorine
bleach in water (one cup bleach to 3 cups water, increasing the bleach as
necessary). Spray or sponge it on, wait a few minutes, then rinse well with
clean water. Commercial mildew remover sprays can also be used. Be sure to
wear rubber gloves and rinse the area well after cleaning."
