Hi there -
I am trying to figure out how to remove lots of grout haze and extra
grout on glazed porcelain tile. The previous owners of my house did a
hack job on the bathroom, and I'm trying to deconstruct their efforts.
You might try a blue 3M plastic scrubbing pad; green ones can scratch
glass, so could also
scratch glaze. Do not try to use muriatic acid. You might also try
vinegar, keeping it out of
the grout joints.
When we had tile installed by contractor, he was very careful to clean
off haze but gave us
instructions to do a final vinegar and water rinse after two or three
When we were shopping for our tile, a woman came into the tile store
with a problem. She
and hubby had used muriatic to get haze off their new tile and had
trashed three rooms of
newly laid tile. The fumes can also ruin a lot of stuff in the house,
including your lungs.
