II couldn't be more pleased with the dramatic transformation of my kitchen and flooring. My house looks bigger, brighter and modern. I plan on listing my house in the fall and I feel more confident because of Polyblend Grout Renew Colorant.

My white tile grout was looking dingy, and I decided it needed an overhaul to give it a more modern, scandinavian look. I went from white to black! I think it turned out great! I will say that this was a very tedious job, I found that it dried super quick, although I would paint a short line. It was hard to scrub off if it dried on the tile before you could get it wiped off. I had to start using a LIGHTLY damp paper towel to help get it off. Let's see how it lasts!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lisa No more dirty grouts
This is a great product. I did everything to make my grouts looks better. I used scrubbing brush with bleach and other cleaners. It was very time consuming and I hated to expose myself o these cleaners.
I am glad that I found this product. I simple used my thin painter brush which I purchased for painting class in the past. I applied this product over the old grout. My grouts are like brand new and even my tiles look newer. I do not recommended this product in the bathrooms, shower areas where there are constant exposure to water, showering etc. Pressure of water in these areas makes grout come off.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by renofanatic Excellent results
We were contemplating a complete floor renovation in the entryway because the grout was stained and uneven but the tiles were still in great shape. We decided to try to this product first as it is very inexpensive and if it didn't turn out we would just go back to the first plan of a complete floor renovation... SO happy we tried it. This completely changed the look of the entryway! We are so pleased with the results. We used a small craft brush and bright white to match the baseboards. This is tedious work and did take two coats but for the price and the ease of application it was completely worth it!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jules Pain but worth it
The application process is an absolute nightmare. It was difficult to paint only the grout while avoiding the tiles - I tried all kinds of brushes including a child's toothbrush. Even though this was tedious the end results were so worth it. My tile now looks brand new and the grout is almost 10 years old!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Frustrated Did Not Work for Shower Floor Application
Spent the better part of two days of vacation meticulously applying the black product to the grout lines of my slate shower. The product applied nicely, and the excess was easily removed. I allowed over 72 hours of drying/cure time as the product directions recommended. After the first shower, the product came right off of the grout with just water. I have done ALOT of DIY projects and question the numerous positive reviews left by other customers as none of them were consistent with my experience. Very disappointed with the end result based on the amount of time and energy I put into it. Would not recommend for any application where water is involved.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HouseofMayinSantaFe Great product, tedious install, select color carefully
The grout we chose when we replaced all the tile in our home (about 1,000 sq ft total) was way too light. When we installed it, it looked great, and honestly, if it had all stained evenly, it probably would not have looked so bad. But, because we have high-traffic areas that were getting dirty and stained, and other areas that were still pristine and white, it really emphasized how dirty and stained the other areas were.
I found this product on a blog where they used it to paint over their dark grout with a lighter color; my intention was to do the opposite, and I had a problem finding reviewers or consumer photos of the switch I was doing so was a bit nervous. My idea is to darken all areas so that there's less contrast between the clean and dirty/stained areas (since dirt/stains are inevitable). I tried to choose a color that would match our tile well, and almost match the dirty and stained areas, too, so that there won't be too much contrast a few months from now when the grout lines start getting stained again.
I'm about 1/3 through this project. My strategy has been to apply to small areas a bit at a time. It is definitely time consuming and very tedious to apply, but I think will be worth it in the end. I've included photos of the areas that are dark and stained, next to areas with the colorant, and areas that were very white as well. I can't say how this work in the long term (if it will be "stain and fade resistant" as it claims), but I'm attaching photos mid-point so you can judge for yourself, while the application is fresh.
I like how this product refreshes the grout, and adds a smooth cover to the gritty grout surface.
The down side is the color matching, which looks much more beige on the side of the bottle, and while wet, but dries quite a bit grayer. So, I would advise to really test it on several areas of the floor (in different lights) before applying to your whole area, before committing. As it is I'm too deep into this project to stop now, but in a couple years, if this works out, I have decided I will go over it again in a darker/browner color.
