That is some shabby work for sure. You have bigger problems than appearance though. That mesh tile will be popping off in less than a year IMO. The water needs to flow over the edge 24/7 to help it...

I have used a mix of Soft Scrub, Dawn, and Borax with tooth brush and micro fiber rags for years. We have horses and dirty feet make it thru the door no matter how hard we try to clean them.
