    When you are cleaning tile and grout and find that they had some work done to the floor and the tile guy matches the color of the grout to the dirty grout. You then clean it and it now has the opposite affect. Clean grout next to brown colored grout. Good thing I carry grout stain with me. Unfortunately I think the grout was bone and the closest I had was Quartz. Either way , it was fixed for the impending sale.

    Did you grind down the dark grout or add over.
    Looks good.

    I did a restaurant not long ago. Exactly the same thing. There were patches in 5-6 spots. The manager couldn’t understand why I couldn’t get them clean. I had to speak slowly, and use hand gestures....

    Sometimes you're better off to use hand grenades.

    No need to grind, the stain bonds with the calcium in the grout. Looks just like grout.

    BTW, the homeowner was mortified when I showed him. I was a hero after telling him I could fix it and the results...

    If you are talking about the polyblend, thats another job. I did buy some today to test it out. I think Grout Perfect covers way better...

    Invite this guy over. I have an email into him. Check out that applicator. He has three different head sizes.
