Color of grout when dry


I've just laid a small patch of grout in an area where it will never show. Can I use a hair dryer on it to speed up the drying process and quickly get an idea what the final color will be?

Calm down, calm down.

A hair dryer wouldn't be recommended. Grout dried under those circumstances probably wouldn't report the true overall color anyway.

By now you should know more.

I do know now...it looked awful. $10 down the drain!

Do the mega hardware stores sell small samples of grout so I can test a small, inconspicuous area without having to buy a full box of grout?

(Btw, I'm in a hurry cuz I have 4 kids...2 of them girls...and right now I only have one functioning bathroom!)
