cleaning up epoxy grout
 
Hi. I just had my tile floor and shower installed. They grouted today using CEG Lite. After they left (just a bit ago) I noticed that they missed a bit of the epoxy haze in different areas. What is the best way to remove it (or is some residual haze to be expected?)?

Thanks,
Bob

I didn't lookup CEG's instructions, but Laticrete's says, "
For persistent grout film/haze (within 24 hours), scrub area with a mixture of two gallons water and 4 oz white vinegar. Conduct a test area to verify results on polished stones.
Unlike cement grout haze that can be buffed off the following day, LATICRETE SpectraLOCK PRO Premium Grout film/haze that is allowed to cure on the tile surface may be difficult to remove."

Since it wasn't in the CEG Lite pdf file, I decided to call tech support. They said any paint solvent. I used denatured alcohol (did try vinegar and a few other things as well).

Seemed to do the job. Thanks for your help. :)

And why did you not call the people that did the job and let them clean up the mess?
