    I'm doing a big job this Saturday, and I need to reseal the black grout on this job. Can I go pick up the cheaper sealer at home depot since it's black? Or do I need to quit trying to be a cheapo

    Water based sealers will leave a white haze.
    Aggressive cleaners can pull color.

    Don't be so sure its really black

    It's a black tile floor, so I seen no reason why they'd install any other color of the grout. It's a commercial job

    I had a customer with a burgundy Tile and Black grout , I asked her if she was sure it was black , she said I cleaned it my self last year , it's black. The grout was about the same color as the tile when I was done with it, talk about a mortified customer. And yes, don't be a cheap ass , get the good stuff.
