Grouting tile


I just got done grouting a ceramic tile floor but can't get under the toe kick on a vanity with the rubber float. What's the best (easiest) way to get into that tight space. Also, should I use grout there or caulk?

Grouting tile


I was going to suggest a rubber glove and a handfull of grout. Thats how I do mosaics and it works just find. Smear the grout into the space, let it dry to a light haze on the tile and wipe off with a rag.

Grouting tile


Huh, that would make sense. A little embarrassing. I definitely earned that newbie title didn't I? Thanks.

Grouting tile


F. Nando:
When I can't fit a regular float between the faucets and spout when grouting bathroom wall tiles, I use a margin trowel with masking tape wrapped around the blade (to prevent marking the tiles).
