Sealer only goes on the grout,not the tile/

If you seal the tile,you will hate the result---the sealer will come off in patches and look awful.

After reading your note, I searched Google for what you are looking for. This might be helpful to you: - you don't mention if the tile you have is glazed or not. but in any regard, the link I furnished says it's okay to seal the tile too, although it doesn't need to be sealed. Many years ago, I helped my dad, he was a Ceramic Tile Setter. I do recall working with a sealer that we covered even the glazed tile surfaces along with the grout and had very good results. That was way back in the late 1940's and early 1950's - a long, long time ago.
