Still waiting for the grout to cure... tick tock tick tock... We have purchased the new quarter round, the appliances are waiting patiently to move back to their homes, and I have confirmed that I AM NOT VERY PATIENT!
So I tackled the grout haze on the tile today. I still had that fine glaze that most inexperienced tile layers experience. I scrubbed and scrubbed but whenever it would dry that chalky haze just reappeared.
So here is the recipe that I discovered that WORKS! Yes, I know there is a glaze cleaner that works, but I am
cheap thrifty remember? And my car is being inspected so I couldn't get to the store...
|How to remove grout haze.|
So here it is... the Coastal Star endorsed Grout Haze cleaner...
1/3 cup ammonia, 1/2 cup baking soda, 1/4 cup ammonia and 6 cups of warm water.
I scrubbed each tile with cheesecloth.
|Right side of tile is scrubbed with the cleaner, left side still has haze. See the difference?|
|How closely are you looking at my pictures? Can you see the shoe print I left?|
I also went back over the tiles with an old towel to dry and buff.
Tomorrow I get to seal the tile and hopefully move my appliances back in!!!!
