How to apply grout sealer on vertical walls?


What is the best, clean way to apply a grout sealer on vertical walls surrounding a bath tub?
Using spray, using a brash or using some other way.

Thanks a lot.

Do not use aerosol spray. They cause cancer and you do not want to breath in grout sealer mist. Use a brush type applicator and start from the top and work your way down. Do a couple coats right in a row because the sealer will run down the vertical tiles.

The spray is not going to cause cancer.

Anything can cause cancer.

So - I've found that those bottles with a roll-on sponge top work great. You fill the bottle and when you put pressure on the tip it releases it onto the roller - roll roll roll - tada.

It's great.
