Over grouted a mosaic in my shower


HELP! I think we left the grout on too long on a mosaic inset in our shower. The grout comes up a little high around the stones and they seem to diapear/ be a little too covered. Is there anything I can do? This happened a few hours ago and I've tried sponges, scratching pads, and a plastic scrub brush. I would like to see more of a releaf around the stones and to better see the beauty of the natural stone. ANything I can do?

I hope that you have already gotten that extra grout off---Scraping it off is the only thing I know of--

Might be Jazz or Bud know something---or someone else---

I think the stone on our mosaic is a tumbled marble. Is there any way to use some sort of sander or something to polish the stones? There isn't much on them they just look a little dirty like we didn't wipe the haze off quickly enough and it set. Any ideas?

If you used a non sanded grout, it should come off with water and a nylon dobie at this point. If you used a sanded grout, by this time you probably need somthing a lot stronger.
It would really help if you could specify what tile you bought and installed and what grout you used.
