Customer Questions & Answers

How would you apply this product to the grout?

Asked by: Anonymous
I used a craft brush which I purchased from Art and Crafts store called Michael's. Make sure to shake the bottle well and pour some amount to a disposable plate. you could gently wipe excess amount with dry or slightly wet towel from the tile in case you apply the product to tile accidenty inside of grout area.

Will this product apply a light color over dark grout? We have a bathroom with black grout and we hate it!

Asked by: Anonymous
My grout was black too and I went to a light gray which matched the tile. It looks 100% better! The black was just awful and I was so happy to see it covered up! I think you will be too.

Future maintenance - sealing?

After applying grout renew, does it need to be sealed or reapplied regularly down the road? That is, do I need to seal the colored grout in a year or two or just clean it?
Asked by: BC
I'd have to say it needs to be sealed. After applying it I noticed that it would still come off a bit if it got wet, so I haven't yet but will likely seal pretty soon to maintain the color.

Which shade of Polyblend grout Renew is closest to cream? Its difficult to see colors on a computer. Thank you!

Asked by: barbar
Canvas would be your closest color in my opinion. Always good to do a few lines in different rooms where the lighting is different. The sunlight can make a huge difference. Just like wall paint.JW

Polyblend #11 Snow White 8 oz. Grout Renew Colorant is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 485.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product!!! Great results! The previous homeowners added a new shower addition and used Polyblend grout for our shower in "Summer Wheat" to complement the new tile walls of our shower. Since they did not lay new floor tile, they treated the existing floor tile grout with Polyblend "Sandstone" Grout Renew to re-color the old grout. While this looked nice, I preferred to update the floor grout tile color with the same color as the new shower grout, since it was available online in the Grout Renew product in the same color hue "Summer Wheat". Am I glad I did!!! It really warmed up the floor and compliments the new shower tile addition to make the entire bathroom renovation look seamless and cohesive! This product is super easy to use, following the directions given, and I love the result. I attached a few photos mid-way through the process so you can see the difference of the "Sandstone" color (which was the previous homeowners choice and is a bit more gray) against the warmer color of "Summer Wheat"! I love my results and am thrilled with this product!!!

Covered my bathroom's dark brown grout beautifully - it looks like a whole new bathroom!!

They wanted about $1,000 to add the grout stain to our order (less than 2,000 sq ft). We passed. And although they did a great job of cleaning the tile the grout just never came came out good. Went to HD and bought some of this and have been happy. We used almost 5 bottles so as you can tell we saved a lot of money. And yea, it took about 16 hours but we did it over a few days. For the application I started with a little paint brush but soon realized that would take forever. So I used some advice from someone on here and emptied out an old Elmer's glue bottle - worked perfect. It is so easy to use too much of the product on but since it's so cheap it really doesn't matter. I'd squeeze some on in maybe about a 6x6 tile area. Use a toothbrush to bush it in then use a clean paper towel to wipe up the excess then follow with a damp towel. Need to be careful as it is easy to wipe the product from the grout. And yea, I didn't stay "in the lines", not even close but I just wiped it up. We will have to go back and clean the tile a bit from where I wiped up but that's OK. Something like a Swifter or similar will be fine.

First my grout didn't turn out to be this color then after a phone call I was told I had "efflorescence" which caused my grout to appear white. I was told by a representative of Custom Building Products to use sulfamic acid on the efflorescence to get rid of the hard water deposits which returned negative results. I then proceed to use Grout Renew and paint all my lines to finally get the tobacco brown color I was looking for and it came out to be a shade of gray. I ordered a similar color from Mapei and it was well worth the extra money to ship in the other companies product for a color that was a little different. Very dissatisfied with this product and company. So many wasted hours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great find I was covering concrete grout in slate floor so it took more strokes that it might for regular ceramic tiles or such. I only used it in the back bathroom floor as a test and it lit up the floor so nicely, it wasn't "professionally"applied but it did the job for us. I wasn't looking for perfection but just a bit 'face lift' on the floor. After using this product, which, btw, dries really fast, I applied a product that add a coat of shine to the slate floor without making them slippery and voila, project completed! Floor looks like I just mopped them every single day. They were so dull before :)

Time consuming to apply and really back-breaking because of being on the floor, but this product is great. It's like you got new grout. My grout was 20 years old. Even after cleaning, it looked nasty. Thankfully, my tile is stonelike and it wasn't too critical to clean the colorant off the tiles with the utmost precision. I used a very small art paintbrush (smaller than grout width) for application and a pack of baby wipes for cleaning the tiles. I would wipe up the tiles about every two tiles in width. Wait too long and it's hard to clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for when you choose the wrong color grout I recently redid the tile surrounding my bathtub. I like any other guy, did not listen to my significant other, and chose charcoal colored grout (which would of looked great if I wasn't so messy) instead of a grey that she told me to get. This not only was able to cover up the dark charcoal grout but also made my subway tile tub surround look amazing. Just a few pointers... work in small sections and try to get as little on the tiles as possible. Although it isn't impossible to wipe off... it will definitely be a work out doing so.

You are supposed to apply a bead of the grout renew over the existing grout. However you can't squeeze a bead of product out of the bottle because the cap on it doesn't allow you to, because it is just an ordinary cap. I had to go back Home Depot and buy a squeeze bottle and pour the contents into it so I could apply it correctly. It seems stupid that they just don't provide a cap that will allow you to apply it directly from the bottle it comes in.

I have learned to hate tile floors due to all the staining that has gone on over 25 years..I've tried a special recipe of vinegar, amonnia and baking soda and scrubbing to get them back to normal and it just didn't work. I took a chance on this product and my floors look like they were put down just last week! I have about 160 sq. Ft. And it's now the same color everywhere!..You can throw a bucket of water on it and it won't absorb a thing because it has a sealant in it (before if you spilled it just turned dark because it was absorbing all moisture)..The natural colors that they have are wonderful too..On a "10" scale I give this product a "15"..We are moving soon to Florida and we will end up with some tile flooring so now I know how to make them brand spankin new!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A miracle! Our shower grout was stained orange and no scrubbing or cleaner had helped. I gave up on it until I couldn't take how gross it looked any longer. Did a final internet search out of desperation and came across this. It is nothing short of a miracle! I bought a grout sealant bottle brush and used that to apply, wiping as I went along with a dry paper towel. After about 10 minutes I went back over the area with some Mrs. Meyers cleaning spray and a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. My grout looks brand new again!

We did a countertop with 12"x12" Absolute Black granite, using black urethane grout. Afterwards we grouted the backsplash with a light colored urethane grout about 24 hours later. This stained the black grout and gave it a white haze. Instead of grinding out the grout I painted the grout lines with this product. This product absorbed into the grout below the surface, even though it was a urethane grout. I am very happy with this, as it appears that this will be a long lasting solution. The only thing I feel could be improved is if they could put an applicator on the cap, so you can squeeze out a thin line of this colorant on the grout line. Otherwise it gets on the granite and you need to clean it immediately, because it dries quite fast and becomes increasingly difficult to clean off.

I have used several colors of this product to cover up Custom Building Products Polyblend grout that often has a problem with efflorescence or the finished grout job ends up with spotted colors. Everyone had a different way to fix these problems with the grout and we tried them, but each time we ended up with a spotty colored grout. But hey, there is a fix for the spotty grout problem, it is Polyblend Grout Renew, by the way it is made by the same company that sells the grout! How nice to sell a fix in all those beautiful dark colors! For those that buy this product to color old grout it is a god send! Im hoping that this color fix will last for years and years because I cant find reviews from anyone telling us how it holds up after several years.

I rarely write reviews, but I am so happy I found this product and that it worked so well. I have light tile and the grout was very very dirty - from years of being abused by my tenants. I mean the grout was black in some places. I bought the color called 386 Oyster Gray. It's a pretty light color so I doubted it could make my black grout look light again. But it did! My floor looks almost new again. I'm so relieved that it was such an easy fix! Highly recommend GroutRenew!

Had no idea grout paint existed until a cleaning crew was unable to make the grout "look" clean and new again in our recently purchased home. Turns out the grout used was a disgusting off-white/yellowy shade to begin with with the white & grey marble tile. It is a very meticulous project, but not difficult. I found using a 2" foam brush to apply and damp Handi-Wipes to carefully wipe the paint away from the tile using one layer of fabric between my finger and the edge of the tile, which was marble. The 70 sq ft area I completed took about 3 hours total time. Make sure you use kneely/garden pads!!! I wasn't crazy about the cheaper marble tile to begin with, but now that the grout looks new, the tile looks better, too!! Awesome product! I'd add before and after pics, but the my files are too large and I don't know how to change it.

And certainly not as hard as actual re-grouting. Good results on a 30+ year old 2 by 2 inch porcelain floor tile. As they direct - do small areas ~2SF at a time. A bit of elbow grease necessary of the 2nd wiping off of the product to remove/polish the product from the face of the tile. But altogether quite happy with it. Down about a month now and still looking good.

Its hard to match the correct color from a computer monitor to what it actually looks like in my installation. The "Urban Putty" was ultimately the color that looked the best. The product itself is great. Its easy to apply, but is pretty tedious. I used a small paintbrush to apply it, then a toothbrush with the bristles trimmed on the sides to match the width of the grout joint. Once you paint it on, I lightly scrubbed it with a toothbrush. I only worked for about 5-7 minutes, then wiped off the excess. It took me about 3 hours to do about 40 square feet. The results were very good. The extremely stained grout before looks brand new again. Its been applied for over a month and it still looks perfect. I only used about a 1/4 of a bottle for my 40 square foot bathroom. Will certainly buy again.

We just moved into this home and the grout was so stained and there was no cleaning it! I was skeptical but my husband wanted to try and paint all of our grout in the bathroom and the kitchen/eating.

We used this on our kitchen and dining room tile with 1/4 inch plus grout lines. The tile was put in the house and rented out to people with dogs and kids for a couple of years before we bought it. We never realized how stained it was until we cleaned it. And the grout color was easy to use, it wiped off the tile face easily, and one bottle covered all the area. What a difference! Looks new again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

After the contractor finished the grout, it looked good until it dried much lighter than I had anticipated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Dove Gray Polyblend!! This grout dye is easy to apply (though time consuming - but worth every second) and looks great!! The best part is how easy it cleans off of the porcelain tile. I am very happy with the overall outcome of this product and would recommend it to anyone. The reason I wanted the grout darker was to bring the pattern and colors out in the tile, and it did just that!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Did a good job on changing the grout color. Requires the use of a brush to apply the product to the grout, some type of roller or applicator that fits on the bottle, but allows adequate flow of the product would be an improvement. Cleans off the porciline tile reasonably well even if it is relatively dry. Application is time consumeing and it has not been on long enough to determine how durable it is.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great coverage We had white grout between white subway tiles. I wanted to change the color after it started looking dingey. Delorean gray looks amazing and added contrast. The product is easy to paint on but a pain to keep off tiles. Very tedious. It does scrape off easily when it dries on the tiles but it's a lot of work. The look is worth the hassle though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is a miracle worker! Love this product so much. Easy to apply (although time consuming) and the results are truly amazing! I bought it to restore my grout to the color it is supposed to be since my original grout wasn't sealed and became very dirty looking. So far, the newly colored grout has held up nicely and has not gotten the "dirty grout" look.
