Answer: 
I was able to put antique white color over tan grout. I had to clean it very first though. I used the recommended cleaner on the bottle and it did bleach some of the original color to white. It did cover the darker spots that did not seem to come clean. I would try it in a hidden spot first.

I'm not exactly sure because it depends on the space between the tiles and how many times you might need to apply to get the affect you want. But I can tell you that a little goes a long, long way. I did about 800 sq. ft. (16" tiles) with less than 1 bottle. Since the first application, I have done a little touch up in the traffic areas and where the cats have thrown up hair balls.

Answer: 
I did about 100 sq. ft. and only used 1/4 to 1/3 of the bottle. It goes a really long way. Which is great in case I ever have to do any touch ups. But it's been a year and it still looks outstanding.

Answer: 
It has been my experience that Home Depot online has the best selection of this product and quite a few colors available. However, the actual store has a more limited selection in stock. At least ours does. Check online, and order a couple colors if you are unsure. You can always return the ones you are not happy with. Home Depot has great Customer Service and is good about returns. Keep your receipt!

You can search on Home Depots website for Polyblend grout renew. It'll bring up a description/buy page. Under the price is a drop down arrow which shows you the different colors to choose from.

Bobb,
Polyblend is a water based product. It easily cleans up with water after use. However, if you let it dry on the brush, it is very difficult to clean. Here is a tip on application: Use stiff toothbrushes to apply the colorant to the grout lines. With a sharp exacto knife, cut the outside rows of bristles from the toothbrush to leave a narrow strip of bristles. This will give you a perfect applicator

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 77 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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! September 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. July 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. August 16, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 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. March 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. (Pics are before, during, after, and side-by-side comparison) March 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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! September 22, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Did the job I had some white grout in bathroom floor tile of a house I was selling. Couldn't get stains out. This did an excellent job of coloring. A bit tedious but easier than rerouting. I used a small foam brush to paint the joints and wiped as much of the excess as I could with a damp rag. After it dried, I used a sponge with the nylon scrubber to get it off of the tile and a razor blade scrapper for the heavier stubborn places. Comes off fairly easily without disturbing the grouted area. Probably best to do a small area until you get the hang off it because the longer it dries, the more difficult it is to remove from the tile. Especially a textured tile. April 12, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Looks great! It takes time to install this product, but the final product is nice. I hope it holds up, but it seems like it will... I am not finished my entire project, about half way thru... it looks so much better. I added a picture of it during.... September 29, 2015
