Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Boltster good product, dries quickly and seals well.
takes 2 coats to seal properly and works well with the roller applicator that you can find at home depot as well. I pour it out of the spray bottle into the roller applicator and use it that way.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Moose Leaves white film & hard to use
Very hard to spray and can not spray all the sealer from the bottle unless you hold it upright defeating the idea of standing up and srayng the grout on the floor. Also when it dries it leaves a white film on the grout that can't be removed.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jose Do not use for sealing your Grout, It will stain your Tile.
I just used this my tile that was installed 4 days ago. It leaves stains that i have been unable to remove. I did small sections at a time and cleaned up the excess per the instruction after 10-15 minutes. Later I could see where i had cleaned on The Porcelin Tile that had been installed.
I do not recommend this for anyone. I choose since it gets good reviews on line. I followed all the instructions. It made the grout milky looking and i have dark brown.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Groutnewbie Sealed better than expected
Was concerned that it wouldn't work as well as the $24.99 sealer recommended on the non-sanded grout package. I used it to seal shower stall grout. Went on like water, but I used a cloth to rub it in and I could see the grout color darken as it absorbed the sealer. After letting it dry for 2.5 hours, applied second coat and immediately noticed the difference in the liquid deflection. Will probably do another coat, but so far, so good. Did not damage my tile, and once dry, the grout retained its original color. The more expensive sealer would probably be better, but this seems good enough.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by skaizun Waste of money; didn't do as promised
I spent two hours hand-cleaning very dirty grout (age, soap scum, mildew). It was surprisingly clean, but I wanted to seal it, so, I bought the Tilelab Grout & Tile Sealer. I followed the instructions to the letter, which was extremely difficult and time-consuming. I expected it to be gel-like, or a little thicker than plain water (it smells like ammonia), but the spray ran off the grout like water off a stone, which is somewhat ironic. Also, it was difficult to aim, though I got used to it. I resorted to using a sponge pad (the kind hobbyists use; not very absorbent, so, whatever you spread goes on the material, not in the sponge). Contrary to the implication that it would leave a residue on the tile if not removed, immediately (which I did), it left no residue on a test area (what's the point of calling it "tile sealer" if you can't leave it on the tile?). I could see that it was not absorbing into the cleaned grout, but, I hoped that, at the very least, it would act like a caulk and protect the grout. After waiting 24 hours for it to dry (the instructions are vague on how long it should take, so I took no chances), but, when I turned the shower water on, I could see that it was no better than before the application (i.e., no beading, no runoff, etc); in other words, no sealing. So, I dried it, waited a couple of hours for it to air-dry thoroughly (even left the bathroom fan running), then applied a second coat, per the instructions. I waited another 24 hours. No difference. I brought it back for a refund. I will not purchase another Tilelab product, and took note of the contents to ensure that a similar product wouldn't have it, IF I had a mind to purchase any, which, for the time being, I won't (I decided to use a very thin layer of silicone caulk; if it fails, at least it's easy to remove). Very disappointed.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by sandman good protection
Applied two coats with bristle and squeeze bottle. Water stayed out of grout after testing. Did not change color of grout.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TheIceMan Easy to use, cheap and works!
The instructions are not great but the product is great. Water was leaking through the grout in my shower causing a really bad odor which I thought was sewer gas. The plumber said it was mold, and I will need to take out the tiles, remove the pan, etc.($$$$$!!). I talked to a friend and he suggested that I should try just clean out all lose grout and regrout before spending a lot of money. I poured bleach in the shower to get rid of the mold and let everything dry out for a few days. After it dryed I regrouted the lower tiles and floor and let it dry for a few days. I bought the sealer and just sprayed everything, sponged it down, then let it dry. The next day, I gave it another coat of sealer, then let it dry. All is well, no smell, no leaks. I will reseal it again in 6 months to make sure it doesn't leak again. For about $40 plus about $10 for the sealer, I saved about $1,500-$2,000!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by George Good product, easy to apply, reasonable price
Just spray on and wipe off excess in a few minutes. Easy to apply. I put on two coats on new backsplash. Seems to protect the new grout very well.
