add more grout?


Last weekend I grouted our kitchen backsplash. Since then I have noticed 2 small holes where I didnt get enough grout in and it left a small hole. It's not serious but it will bug me...

At this point can I just put a little more grout or am SOL ?

Nope your going to have to tear out the backsplash and redo it unfortunately.




















Just Kidding...add more grout.

If they're very small (heck, even if they're not so small), if you have color matched caulk for caulking the backsplash to countertop, ooze a tiny bit into your finger and press it into the hole. I've done that for some tiny holes that I didn't see till days after I was finished w/ the grouting that annoyed me. Now I can't even tell where they were. It's a lot easier imo than mixing up grout just to fill some tiny spots.
