laid them in my bathroom and didnt wipe enough grout out while it was
still wet, so i'm left with quite big grout lines. I made the same
mistake on the wall tiles but managed to 'sand' them down with a
decent sponge scourer. However on the floor tiles the grout is more of
a cement and tears the scourer apart, does anyone have any ideas how i
could 'sand' it down like i did with the wall tiles? Its not a major
problem and doesnt look too bad but would be nice to get the even and
thinner grout lines.
Try that first.

Even vinegar works on grout..its only a superior form of limescale.
Wear gloves if you like, but I let my hands tell me when they are being
can you please send a link to a screwfix product or b & q i could use
for rubbing down the floor grout as well as removing set grout from
tile surfaces. like you say i must need something chemical as hard
rubbing alone just ruins the sponge with no effect. the limescale
spray i have is coloured (supermarket product) so would probably not
be a good idea. thanks guys
You could try a window scraper for the face of the tiles, and some
coarse, fabric backed abrasive for the grout lines. Something for a belt
sander would be ok. Just tear it into a useable size and fold it to get
into the gaps. Hard work though...
thanks for that link but i dont think that would help as i dont want
to dig up the grout, just smooth it off a bit.
any one got a link to this de scaling solution so i can try scrubbing
with that, to try and smooth down some of the grout?
