My new ceramic tile floor in my kitchen went well. However, after grouting I can't get all the grout up off the face of the tiles. These are glazed ceramic tiles. The are not flat, they have small ridges and valleys for a very natural look. However, I now have dried grout in all the valleys or veins of the tile. Today I bought a grout haze remover. This was not strong enough to remove the dried grout in the "veins" of the tiles. What next? Can I scrape with steel brush? Will that scratch the tile?
Any comments welcome
Im not a pro but I just did my kitchen and I was told to use muratic acid. Mix it lightly, sponge it on and let it set for a couple of minutes and sponge off with clean water. Dont use a strong mixture and you may indeed have to increase the strength a little if it doesnt work the first time. Use a small area to test on first. I used it on my kitchen project and it worked well.
