Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RaeRae 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tommy Polyblend Grout was Easy to Use
I used the Polyblend bright white grout for both the mosaic and porcelain tiles in my first DIY shower installation. The grout was easy to mix using a mixing tool attached to my electric drill. Non-sanded was chosen because spacing was 1/8 inch or less. Tiles were applied to walls and ceiling and non-sanded used on those surfaces. The product mixes to a nice lump free consistency and spreads smoothly. Clean up of excess was easy as the product does not dry too quickly. The product was also used with mosaic and marble pencil molding from Home Depot to create a backsplash above the bathroom vanity.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LosRubios Easy to use, really made our shower colored glass accent tile stand out
We recently remodeled our bathroom and designed an vertical glass accent tile into our shower wall. We used Bone colored unsanded grout on the wall tiles and switched to bright white unsanded grout on the accent with great results.
It is easy to mix with water and apply with a rubber grout float and didn't scratch the glass tiles. Clean up is easy however I do recommend working in small areas since if the grout dries in hot temperatures, it can be a pain to remove.
We use a QEP brand grouting sponge from Home Depot which also has a microfiber cloth on one side and this works like a charm for removing the heavy grout and also the grout haze without ripping out the freshly applied grout.
Once dry we sealed the tile and the grout with CBP's Aqua Mix water based tile sealer to help prevent hard water spots in our shower.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Handyman Practice first!
Our first use of this non-sanded grout product so there was a learning curve. The first project we tried to follow the mixing directions, but it was too wet and our grout lines were not filled in enough. It was on a vertical surface so it was to easy to wipe out. It was also a mess to wipe off without being able to run outside to a hose for rinsing. Rinsing the sponge in a bucket of water didn't work well since the water was dirty and full of grout residue really quick. We were snowed in so I was running buckets of water through the house and dumping them out the back door. Now I have a mess to clean up outside. We didn't want to put this stuff down our drains. We did a tub surround and a kitchen countertop. We did the countertop grout twice to make sure we had nice full grout lines. We kind of figured out what the best mix was of grout and water. It looks very nice and is holding up well so far.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by KitoByle Tricky To Work With
For a DIYer of my caliber, non-sanded grout can be a bit tricky to work with. By far, the worst feeling with this stuff is leaving thinking the job is going well and coming back the next day to find cracks in your lines. Here is what I learned from my experience:
Trying to mix in smaller batches than the entire bag is not very reliable. It's difficult to get the correct mixture, and I'm not sure if this is due to my inability to divide correctly or if the mixture isn't entirely homogenous within the bag. Have everything you want to grout ready and mix the whole bag. If you follow the directions on the back of the box, you should be good.
Push the grout in with a float and always start and end in the same direction going along your lines. You don't want to fight with bubbles in the middle of the job. You do need to employ a little strength at this point to get the grout filled in.
Keep your sponge SLIGHTLY wet. Water should not be pouring out of the sponge when you press it against a hard surface, but it should be slightly damp to the touch.
Finally, and probably most importantly, play the waiting game when it comes to sponge time. I found that the best time for me to sponge the grout was when I could apply a little pressure when sponging and the grout was set enough that the line eventually became distinguishable, but there might be some grout remnant on top of the tile. Don't sacrifice the grout line for the grout left on top of tile--you can scrape that off, you don't want to weaken the grout line with excessive sponging. And if too much grout is coming off while you sponge, go back and sponge some lines you put on earlier... or continue to wait, this set time along with proper mixture are the cruxes of the job--it's all about controlling the moisture.
