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?
