re-grouting

Some of the grout in our shower is moldy and must be removed. I am using a Dremel tool to do this. My question is re-grouting. The tiles are 4" and the grout lines in between each tile are very thin about 1/8". What is the procedure for regrouting without making a mess of the tiles? As recommended, we have purchased non-sanded grout. Thanks Liz

the same as the original grouting. apply with rubber float, remove from face of tile with damp sponge, buff when dry.

Women might use a piping bag, I really don't know. Myself, I make a mess and clean the tile as I grout.

Liz,
If the surface of the tile is smooth without voids the I would use a grout float and a grout sponge (a sponge with very small cell openings) and grout following the directions on the box. It is really not that messy of a job. Just make sure to get all the excess grout off the surface of the tile with the sponge (rinse often, wipe at a 45 degree angle to the grout line) before it drys. Done properly, any remaining grout haze can be buff out with a white scotch pad. If the tile surface has pits or voids the try a grout bag (same as a pastry bag).

Thanks. Since the tile surfaces seem smooth, I don't think it will be too bad a job...
