Well, actually, I've never done this either!  I saw it in a Dremel ad!  I 
don't know if there's a specific bit for grout, but any small cutter should 
work.  Buy several, because you will probably need them all.  I would 
probably try a ball-ended grinder, rather than the tiny little saw shaped 
bit.  It would be easier to handle the tool.  (The Dremel tool, that is!)

See how easy it is to cut the grout, then cut as deep as you feel comfortable 
doing.  You might ask someone in the tile section of a large building supply 
store about how deep (thick) grout should be.  If it's too thin, it may not 
adhere well enough.
