grout color question


I'm a new user here, here's my problem. We laid ceramic tile and I have grout that is too white in a medium brown tile. It has been about 48 hrs since the grout was applied. No sealer has been applied.
First question, what is the best product to color the grout to a darker color? Second, what is the proper drying time before applying the sealer.

Check with your local supplier or Google "Grout Stain". We usually seal the day after grouting.

Cheers

Look for Aquamix.
They make a grout colorant that is like a paint for the grout. You can choose whatever color and once installed, the grout is SEALED!

I started a new thread for this topic, as it was hijacking another user's thread.
