Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by IdahoRK looks like a third grader colored my tiles
Spent about 12 hours cleaning and polishing tile in my shower as I did not want to have to demo and redo it. Tile ended up looking great, almost brand new. Then I decided to see if I could use this product to renew the grout before re-caulking and basically having a new looking shower with tile and grout. Put it on and it looks like a third grader colored all over my tiles. Even after scrubbing with the SOS pad and following directions just as the video provided the edges are not straight and uniform like grout should be. If you try to scrub it harder to get the remaining bit off the tile edges leaving the grout only then the product comes off the grout too. Now I get to demo my shower and start from scratch after putting in a solid few days trying to avoid that. VERY POOR PRODUCT... STAY AWAY IF YOU LIKE CLEAN STRAIGHT GROUT LINES. Dear polyblend if you read this would you please send my 50sqft of new tile. Thanks for nothing!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lifeguard Polyblend Antique White Grout Renew Colorant
This is a time consuming process, but so worth the results! I now have brand new looking tile and couldn't be happier! It is fast drying, so don't pour a lot into your container or it will start to set up. I used a glass ramekin and washed it out when I was through. I did two bathrooms, long hallway, small laundry area and kitchen with one bottle. This is an answer to my prayers!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Updater Looks Like a New Floor
Bought this to test out in our master bath since it is the only separate room with tile. Our house is 11 years old and the tile throughout the house has a dated look. To me the dark grout with offwhite tiles created a checkerboard effect. After using Grout Renew, it looked like a different floor. I used Antique White and it took a little longer than I anticipated because I tried various methods to apply. Ended up using a nozzle cap on Grout Renew bottle and putting little drops about 1 1/2 inch apart and spreading it with a soft toothbrush that I had cut off half the bristles lengthwise. This minimized the spreading onto sides of the tile. It took less than 1/5 of the bottle to do about 65 sq ft. I will see how it holds up over the next few months and if still looks good, will tackle the rest of the house. The tile in the rest of the house is all adjoining, so once started, there is no going back. Lesson Learned: I have had both knees replaced so will use a good pair of knee pads next time.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Richierich03 Not impressive, just average at best!
Wanted to try and spruce up the older tile grout. I tested this on a grout joint I had to remove before testing it on any other tile. What I found is this product is way too thick to really get in and penetrate the grout. At best you are only painting the grout. I will be returning the product and try cleaning the grout. Not sure if the product should be this thick but after reading the other reviews I think it sits on the HD shelf too long. Would not recommend this product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bob good purchase, does the job!!
I cleaned the floor grout and let it dry for a day; I shook the grout well a few times and put it upside down. The next day I trimmed the bristles of an old toothbrush making it thinner and used that to brush it on the grout. I did go to a local beauty store after the first day and bought an inexpensive squeeze dispenser with a small nozzle and put the grout renew in that, and I was able to better control how much was going directly on the grout. I also only did 2 sides of a tile at a time and cleaned up the edges as I went.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CLM81 What?!
Ok, let me start by saying that I NEVER do product reviews (much less do them at work but I couldn't contain myself..). This product, Polyblend Grout Renew, deserves another one to go with the hundreds of other glowing reviews.
I discovered PGR the other night around 3 in the morning, when I suddenly woke up from a deep slumber and had an idea regarding a very off in the future remodel of my bathroom. Thoughts of the bathroom led to thoughts of a kitchen remodel and the longing desire to destroy the gosh-awful creamish-beige and brown colored glazed ceramic tile with dark brown grout (Really? Who thinks that looks good?!) currently inhabiting my kitchen floor. Then it dawned on me.. what can I do to not only save money but do easily and save the trouble of re-tiling or regrouting. So I found PGR after a short internet search.
I rushed to HD the next day and purchased two bottles - Antique White and Bright White. And so began the fun and slightly uncomfortable up close and personal time with my kitchen floor. For my go with this stuff, I first tried the craft brush that all the other reviews recommended but I felt like it wasn't working for me as my grout lines are a little wide. Then I tried an old mini-round tooth brush (the ones you find on the expensive cosmetic dentist-supplied battery operated ones) and that worked like a charm! Its messy at first but once you get your groove, you're golden! Took me about an hour to complete my first go around and that included testing the two different colors and clean up. While I will need to readjust with a slightly different color to completely match the look I'm going for, I can tell you that this stuff is worth every cent of the $12 I spent! My cave of a kitchen looks brand new! The pics speak for themselves!
Some tips - If you have glazed tile, clean up is easy and you can remove any dried left over with the rough side of a sponge or a coarse towel. Best to clean as you go. Use a tiny tiny tooth brush if you have sanded grout to get deep in to the pores. Invest in some knee-pads or a comfortable pad like body mat (or just use a swing contraption a-la Honey I Shrunk the Kids) because you're going to be on the ground for awhile. Clean your tile thoroughly. And keep your doggies/kitties/guinea pigs in another room. My little terrorist-Pom thought it was cool to sneak up behind me and check on my progress = paint prints on the floor.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Amym No need to remove tile when you can "renew"
I am still in the middle of this project and although the application of the product can be tedious, the result is absolutely worth the time. We were going to rip out the old tile because I didn't like the way it looked but the tiles were still in great condition. After reading reviews of grout renew we decided to give it a try and I am really pleased with the outcome. The floor makes the entire room look different. I have tried multiple application techniques, toothbrush, q-tips, wiping with a dry paper towel, wiping with a wet paper towel. What has worked best for me is painting it onto the grout with a fine paintbrush. It is slightly more time consuming but the result is very nice. This is an amazing value!
