seal the tile ... again?


We installed a tumbled marble tile backsplash this weekend.

We sealed the tile after we put it up, but before we grouted.

Now the finished results looks fantastic, but I'm wondering about my next move:

Should I seal the grout?

Or ...

Seal the tile AND grout altogether one more time?

Any recommendations?

Wow, glad I did that. By the second coat of sealer (after grouting, so really teh 4th coat overall) it was beading right off the wall.
