Porcelain Tile Satin/Grout
 
Hi, we have just laid porcelain floor tiles, grouted and left overnight to dry, cleaned this morning and the lovely, brand new tiles are stained, does anyone know what we can do or how to get rid of the stains?,

You're "stains" might actually be haze. Try buffing with a dry cloth, and perhaps by some 'grout haze remover' and scrub with it. Then try a tile and stone cleaner if that doesn't get it all. Both are pretty cheap.

Contrary to popular belief, a lot of porcelain tile has to be sealed before grouting.

Best wishes!
