Grout Removal from Tiles


I have a lite glaze of grout on my tile that I can't remove. Water doesn't do anything. I've used vinger & water but no success. Will muratic work or does Lowes or Home Depot have something less abrasive? Please help..

I believe they do make a haze remover. Check with a tile store if you can't find it in an apron store, but it will still take a lot of elbow grease

Haze remover and a 3M nylon scrubbing pad should work. Haze Remover should be with the sealants.

Hard to tell, but sounds to me that you have more than a little haze, but can't tell from here.

If you use muriatic acid indoors, we may have to visit you in the hospital. It can also damage your home. Do not do that.

If white vinegar or haze remover doesn't work, wait 10 days (after initial grouting date), and try Sulfamic acid crystals per directions.
