I use a lot of it---Be careful with the cleaning as you grout---there is not way to fix a sloppy clean up.

Reserve 2 new sponges for the final wipe down. Read the instructions --and then read them again.

Use an epoxy grout float---the product will melt a cheap black float----

All in all not bad to use---plenty of open time, Clean up of the tiles is not that hard--Read the instructions and have every thing that you will need on hand---Including some white scrub pads--just in case.------Good luck---come back and ask more questions----Mike---

It is a fine way to ruin a nice setting job if you don't get it perfectly clean,that's for sure.

No going back--only ripping it out and doing it over---Mike--

Not that I am aware of.

Laticrete seems to be the more advanced and user-friendly, if there is a such a thing. I basically refuse to deal with the crap.
