I just had my kitchen remodeled and used a beautiful travertine tile that was unfilled. I thought it wouldn't be a problem and that I could use a vacuum sweeper to clean it. But stuff gets lodged in those holes and the floor gets really clean.

Is there a way I can fill in the bigger holes with some type of clear acrylic? The tiles were way too expensive to replace and I love the look of the holes in the tile.

Tell me there's a way to do this!

I meant to say that the floor ISN'T easy to clean because of the holes.

Did you ever find a clear product to fill the travertine holes? I'm on a quest for exactly this. I can't understand why people want to disguise the beautiful characteristics of the stone by using colored grout. I want to fill the holes with a resin or epoxy to keep the holes clean, but not change the look. I'm in the minority! Someone help me understand what I need to learn here!
