We just completed putting a ceramic tile floor down and all of the tiles are covered in the grout haze. I have washed the floors twice with water, and once with tilex, but nothing seems to get the haze off. When it's wet it looks clean, but once it dries, it looks like before I tried washing it. Is there anything else I should try, or should I just continue to wash it?

Thank you!

Did the tile call for a sealer. Try bleach and water. 1 part bleach 4 parts water. If no luck there is a pruduct for cleaning concrete that works. make sure you where gloves.

Grout haze is not a stain. Beach will have not affect.

It is a cementious product that has cured.

If it is light then sonetimes it can be rubbed off with with water and something non-scratching and non-staining. One example is white Scotch Bright pads.

If that does not work then try uses white vinegar. It is a mild acid and with help break down haze. But try to put it only on the areas with haze and then use water to clean it up.

If that does not work then get Grout Haze Remover from the place that you got the grout. You want to verify that the cleaner is for your specific grout.

And follow the instructions.
