footprint in epoxy grout


I'll make this quick: girlfriend walked on epoxy grout before it was ready for foot traffic. Now you can see footprints on the tile if light reflects off of it. Is there anything I can do to fix this?

Get a grout removal tool, remove as per need, and regrout.

If it is fairly fresh scrub it with a white scotchbrite pad and a diluted mixture of vinegar and water. The acid in the vinegar should take up the haze if it isn't cured completely yet. Sound like you have haze and footprints on the surface of the tile where she walked. If the vinegar doesn't work an epoxy haze remover is in order. As for the grout line you can cut it out if it needs regrouted but epoxy is a pain to remove.
