Removing Omni grip from tile


I Used Omni grip tile adhesive on a bathroom floor this week-end. It has been 3 days and not dry at all. After reading on this site today that omnigrip never dries, is there a good way to remove from my floor and tiles. I should have paid a pro to do the job, and not listened to the HD guy who said it was good stuff.

You asked for advice at HD? What were you thinking?

Sorry, but now you know not to do that again. You see, they don't care if the people they hire know anything about tile or not. That person might have been stocking the fertilizer before helping you?

I guess you can try soaking the tiles in water, then scrub? Same for the floor.

What is the substrate you have? What type and size tiles?

And it's on a concrete floor too.........UN-BELIEVABLE!

They should be sued for malpractice or something.

"You can do it.......we can take your money and waste your time!" Now that is a better slogan.
