Mildew free grout…. Mildewing, WTH?

My 4 year old bathroom renovation with travertine tile has mildew proof, or mildew resistant, grout. We squeegee after every use, but the grout still mildews. Any suggestion to control or eliminate this? My wife cloroxes it on occasion, but I don’t think that is good for the travertine. Im sure that I can grout seal again, but I’ll take any suggestions.

s really inexpensive - big 32oz bottles for $1 at Walmart...
