Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by boydthebuilder Worthless Product, does nothing it claims. A licensed Contractors opinion
Had no problems with mixing, applying or wiping down the product. Really no difference than standard water mix grout. BUT, the product offers NO benefit what so ever. After curing, the grout absorbs water just as if we had used a water only mix. The label is certainly a falsehood, as water does not shed at all, and quickly absorbs into grout. I could immediately see the grout darken when water was sprayed onto tile. We have used "Procolor Stain Guard admix" for years and it actually works as advertised. It does cost twice as much, but at least it performs. Find a local tile dealer and use a product that works. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON STAINBLOCKER! Licensed Contractor in Ga for 30 years.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Grouted Read the fine print! NOT A SEALER!
Long story short. Purchased this product along with poly blend non sanded grout for tub enclosure. Looks good and yes grout seems strong (but it's new) and pretty. The problem is! This is not a waterproof sealer or actually any kind of sealant. It's a stain blocker ONLY. So if you want sealer look elsewhere. To me this is unnecessary step. You seal the grout to keep out stains and make waterproof. I was under the impression this was a full sealer and blocker. The only reason I see to have this is if you don't seal. But why would you not seal and moisture proof your grout anywhere you use it?!?

Stain Blocker is not a true stain blocker as stated from the manufactures answer to my questions and non answer to the package photo on the label in my opinion. a waste of 20 bucks

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Transplanted Great Additive - A Must Have For Grouting Applications
Using this additive is super easy. I use just this instead of water to mix the grout.
The finished results do not alter the intended color of the grout at all.
I love how this product protects the actual grout from stains, and excess moisture.
Water beads right off.
Somewhat pricy, but hands down, way better than attempting to seal your grout lines individually.
Very pleased, and highly recommended for all your grouting applications.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Leslie Good product- Used all the time on customer installs
I am a professional remodeling contractor who specializes in bathroom installation. I have installed thousands of square feet of tile before and after using this product (once it was introduced to the market). Grout haze is an installer error and not the fault of this product. The grout is definitely stronger and more stain resistant when using this product.
I have used it in my own shower and it works great. For people who are getting staining, it could be so many issues. No grout additive can prevent all stains. This product is Not desisgned to repel water. Even a sealer that is applied after grouting will not SEAL tile. If you want the least stains, go with an epoxy grout. This is a great product for the price and DOES work.

The people with bad reviews of hard to remove grout haze had to have left the excess grout on the surface too long,I tiled an entire shower; walls and floor with ceramic and glass mosaic as well as bathroom floor approx 125 sq. Ft with zero problems outside the usual haze.
Mixing this product is also convenient being it's in a 32oz jug you pour it in bucket, the refill with water and dump the powered grout in, no guesswork on how much water or need to bring a measuring cup out to ensure proper mixing.
I'd absolutely use this product again; no reason not to. it's like a $19 insurance policy for your expensive tile job.
