Black grout discoloured


My wife and I recently finished tiling the bathroom floor, I set the tiles and she grouted, we used black grout, it looked great until a few days later after we had sealed it. The grout is now not a uniform black colour in all areas, some of it has turned a light grey, how can I fix this? The grout and sealer are both Polyblend products.

Black grout discoloured


Here are pictures of the grout.

And some pictures of the grout on the walls, i think I may have to do it again due to the gaps.

Black grout discoloured


I guess its obvious that my white grout needs reapplying. I discovered grout resealer/dye from the same manufacturer as the grout, will use this to get it back to black.
