Rated 5 out of 5 by Effective at Removing Grout Residue My husband and I installed ceramic faux-wood tiles on our basement floor, and we made a mistake when removing the grout. Instead of using a dry towel to wipe the haze, we used a damp towel, and I think that's why so much residue was left. By the next day, it was impossible to remove, and it was all over our beautiful new (and expensive!) floor! This product was excellent - very effective when used according to instructions. It easily removed the lighter haze areas, and with extra time (I let it sit for up to half an hour) and a little bit of scrubbing with a toothbrush, it removed heavier deposits as well. Didn't completely remove a couple of larger chunks, but I'm going to go back and try those with another round of this acid and perhaps a razor. Had no problems with it damaging the tile or anything like that. October 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by excvellant results i've done alot of tile jobs here and there. anyway i just did 250 sq ft living room with porcalain woodlike tiles. first i used 3 bottles of haze out. results not good, still had alot of the tobacco brown grout lines with deep white haze. anyway to make a long story short , i used half of a 1 pound tub in about 3/4 of a gallon of warm water. a strong bristle brush on a broom handle. i scrubbed it real good let it sit a few min.,then soaked it twice with wet towels. after that i toweled the floor dry. IT LOOKS GREAT, it really made the tobacco brown grout pop. i was very impressed with this product. October 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product really works!!! After getting bad installation advice from a grout additive manufacturer, we were left with a total mess. They told us not to use too much water during the clean up process to avoid efflorescence and the gray grout turning white, so we used very little water and did not remove the grout haze. Not only did our grout turn white, but so did our beautiful tile. When I called the grout manufacturer back, they advised us that we must wait 10 days before we could start cleaning the floor for the additive to cure or it may continue to turn white. So, now after 10 days the grout on the tile was really not coming off. We tried at least 4 products, but nothing worked even after scrubbing on hands and knees with a scrub brush. I purchased the tilelab sulfamic acid cleaner, which was actually the least expensive product that we tried. We followed the instructions for mixing, we put the solution on with a scrub brush, and allowed it to sit on the tiles for 30 minutes, gave it another quick scrub with a scrub brush mop and then removed the cleaner with a hoover floor-mate and finally, our tile is looking good. No more grout haze. I am not saying that this product removed the excess grout and haze without some scrubbing, but at least the end result was good. The other products even after scrubbing had very little effect. One 16 oz container did a 225' square foot floor, and there is still some left. We are extremely happy now. We had almost given up and thought we would have to call in professionals to get the grout off before using this product. I have submitted a picture of the end result. I did not take a picture of the before because we we too disgusted and didn't think I would be reviewing this product. Be assured it looked really bad. November 16, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Did the job After using this company's grout additive sealer on a 300 sq ft tile job, I was left with a white haze on the tile and in the brown grout. I have tiled many times before and never seen this. So, freaked out, I searched the internet and found this product. It saved the day although scrubbing on my hands and knees wasn't in the project plan. December 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Removes dried grout on tiles first try I did some research and found this product. We cleaned up 1000 sq. ft. of Ceramic tires installed by a sub-contractor who left lots of grout residue on every tile, it was a mess. We added a small amount of crystals in a small pail of hot water, and used a nylon brush attached to a pole. It took all the mess away with minimal effort. We mopped each small area first, then scrubbed with the Sulfamic Acid, then mopped again. Only had a minor acidic smell, nothing caustic, and are very satisfied with this product. In fact, it is so effective, we still have about 80% crystals left in the tight sealing package for future use. very highly recommended, especially for the very low price. August 11, 2011
