a couple sentences

Hi,

Could you tell me if these sentences sound natural and clear to you:

Thanks !

Hi Alex

Your first sentence sounds OK to me, but your second is awkward. Here are some suggestions:

  1. I took a toothbrush to the grout in the bathroom tile and scrubbed out/away all the stains.

  2. I’ve got enough money for a couple of bets and hell, there’s always the fountain at the mall (that) people throw pennies in – I can probably dredge up my lunch money there.
