My grout has cracked and chipped out in one small area. How can I fix this?

RE: cracked and chipped grout
Scrape out any remaining loose grout and apply fresh grout. Alternatively you can apply a matching flexible caulking if movement is an issue.

RE: cracked and chipped grout
Normally if grout is cracking this means that there is movement in the tile. Remove the tile and repair the subfloor as necessary and then re-install the tile and grout.
