I had a contractor install ceramic wood-like tiles. I bought this grout for 1/16th lines. Unfortunately this grout came out lighter, almost white in majority of the places. Very few places have the true color. Why did this happen and how can I fix it?

Answer: 
Color variations can occur in any Portland-Cement product including grout. Efflorescence (whitish powder) can also occur. Typically, a sulfamic-acid cleaning will alleviate this discoloration. For further assistance please contact our installation division at 800.272.8786 option 2

Noticed this right away but let it dry completely and it is still gray and it has been a month. I am going to request that he remove the grout and reapply but worried it will turn out the same.

Polyblend #301 Arctic Ice 10 lb. Non-Sanded Grout is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 387.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Patience is a virtue Takes a long time to dry to the final color. Mix well before applying. On a backsplash grout about 4' then gently with a barely damp sponge wipe it down in a swirling motion. Do another 4', repeat/etc. Rinse the sponge often. Buff it down but don't get in a hurry to do this. Wait until next day to see any pin holes/thin areas needing to be touched up. Dampen those areas before applying more grout. As it dries it changes color. Don't mix too much grout at first until you see how far it goes and how fast you can finish a section. The grout will get hard in your tray and why throw good grout away?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful Grout Caveat emptor. Purchased 3 packages of the Polyblend 10lb unsanded grout in tobacco brown for our wood look porcelain tile (1/16th" grout lines, too small for sanded grout). It mixed into a beautiful looking dark brown, but was all down hill from there. The first area I grouted, next morning it had turned almost white. Knowing that we have hard water and about efflorescence, I chalked this up to our water being the culprit. Next batch I mixed up using distilled water (no minerals at all in the water), grouted the second area, and guess what? It turned as white as the first area! Thinking that perhaps it was minerals from the underlying white mortar that was efflorescing up through the grout, I used a gray mortar for another area, mixed up the Polyblend grout again with distilled water, and yet again, it turned just as white. It is clear that this is just a bad product, something is wrong with their mixture or something that provokes extreme efflorescence in the tobacco brown color. We have treated areas with Custom/TileLabs sufamic acid and the results have been decidedly mixed. It does darken the grout, in some areas it achieves the correct color indicated on the box but others remain blotchy and lighter. There appears to be no rhyme or reason for why this happens. My wife called Custom today and the phone agent recommended some enhanced techniques of increasing the concentration of acid and letting it sit on the grout for extended periods of time. We'll see if that makes any difference but at this point I am not holding my breath. I would encourage everyone thinking about Polyblend grout in tobacco brown to stay away from it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Color can be washed out The wife wanted colored grout for the kitchen backsplash. I used the tobacco brown colored grout. I applied it as directed by the meager instructions on the box. I have applied grout many times but this is the first color that wasn't white. The brown pigments seemed to wash out of the grout while I was removing the excess grout. I did wait until the grout set up as instructed by the box. The wet grout looked fine but it dried very blotchy. Some areas were brown but most of the areas were a sand or grey color. Wife very unhappy with the uneven coloring. Improved directions should have warned of this possibility. Overall, I won't use this product again. Very unhappy with the end result. One star since the key feature is the color and it failed to deliver.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst product on the market! Dries grey and looks like mortar instead of grout . This product dried grey and gives the appearance of cement between your tiles. It looks dark brown upon mixing but dries a completely different color. I'm and currently removing this product from my kitchen so we can regroup with another product. If I could give it zero stars I would. This I should be removed from the market.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked fine to regrout shower Good quality and easy to use. I wish I could buy it in smaller quantities as I only used 1 pound of the 10 pound box to re-grout the entire shower floor.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Be careful with directions on the box I foolishly added the amount of water it said to on the package, and the grout was too watery. Start with half the amount and add water in as needed to get the right consistency.
