Answer: 
I previoulsy said this product ruined one of my tiles. I did an experiment to see if I could replicate the effect. I could not. Therefore, I was probably incorrect in believing it was this product that ruined the tile. It must have been a defect in the tile.

Answer: 
This product ruined one of my tiles. We left the bottle sit on the tile for a little while. When we came back, the excess product had dripped to the bottom of the bottle and then eaten through the tile finish.
IF THIS PRODUCT CAN DO THAT IT HAS TO BE BAD FOR THE TILE. NEVER USE IT.
I tried contacting the manufacturer and they have not gotten back to me.

Answer: 
As long as the tile is clean (i.e., devoid of dirt, soap scum, mildew, etc), it should NOT change the color of the grout. Allegedly, it can stain tile, but, I haven't see it do that (basically, it's made of potash and very fine clay with liquid binders, so, any discoloration should be temporary, until it binds with the grout, not unlike putting white glue or clear caulk on white, and then having it Read More

Answer: 
Unless the grout is white, it will if you don't wipe off excess within 3-5 minutes. Excess leaves a white residue that is very difficult to remove. Excess on my gray grout left white patches. A rough bristled brush knocked off the worst of the white.

Answer: 
Yes. It takes a couple applications before it is fully absorbed, but creates a thin "layer" of polymer on top of the grout which is waterproof, or at least water resistant. For me (with natural gray sanded grout), it seemed to ever so slightly darken the color of the grout.

No, the Tile Lab Grout & Tile Sealer will resist and repel but does waterproof a surface. If water is left on the surface, the water will eventually penetrate into the surface.

Answer: 
The stuff is just potash and very fine clay with liquid binders. Try ordinary soap and water. If that doesn't work, try isopropyl or similar alcohol. If that doesn't work, try ammonia, glass cleaner, etc. If that doesn't work, try naptha or paint thinner (make sure that the room is well-ventilated; use the bathroom fan, if that's where you are).

If that doesn't work, try ammonia, glass cleaner, etc. If that doesn't work, try naptha or paint thinner (make sure that the room is well-ventilated; use the bathroom fan, if that's where you are). As a final attempt, try an unused single-edge razor constantly dipped in clean water and GENTLY scrape the tile; it is VERY tedious over long areas, but, safe if done right. Do NOT use sandpaper or anything of that kind. FYI: The sealer WILL eventually come off after repeated washings, so, if your tile is in the tub and constantly exposed to water and regular towel dryings (which you should do to prevent mildew from forming).

Answer: 
As long as the grout is CLEAN (i.e., devoid of dirt, soap scum, mildew, etc), then it may be applied to old or new grout, but, if you're looking to get it whiter, it won't! FWIW, my experience with tilelab's Groute & Tile Sealer was not good.

Rated 3.3 out of 5 by 74 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Flakey We installed a porcelain kitchen floor, it came out beautiful and wanted to seal it. We purchased this product and it left flakes and streaks all over the floor......the floor was perfectly clean and we used a new applicator to apply the product. Am hoping the streaks will come off...would not recommend this product. July 10, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Left streaks on the tile Left running streaks on the tile. Hard to get off... June 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Grout sealer TILELAB GROUT SEALER is a pump spray sealer as opposed to an aerosol spray. I wish I had known about it in the past, as it is far superior to the cans. It is easier to control, more consistent in coverage, and I feel (I have no way to prove it) that the finished product is better I even used an old paint brush to rub it into the grout a bit deeper. . June 7, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Not delighted The product doesn't cover very well & streaks the tile even though I wiped constantly. June 1, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Terrible Product As many others have mentioned, this product WILL put a white film over your grout. If you have white grout, great. If you don't.... you will. It can be removed with a _lot_ of work and some vinegar and water. But it will take a long time. All from a product that already cost you $11.00. HD should stop carrying this product. July 26, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Its grout sealer Its grout sealer not rocket science. What else can I say? Spray it on..wipe off excess. May 10, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by grout sealer I sprayed it on bathroom wall grout and it seems to have worked quite well, I have yet to see any mold and it's been 3 weeks or better. I had hoped to pour the contents in the wheel applicator but the wheel doesn't work well on walls. April 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by If you use it correctly... If you use the sealer like it says too, if will work perfectly. To make it easier to apply to the grout, i got one of the grout applicator bottles for $4 and it was well worth it. (Get the one with the brush not the roller.) You gave to work in small areas, like 4x4 feet, and brush the grout likes not worrying about getting it on the tile. This should take you about 90 seconds tops. Then grap paper towels. And let it sit for maybe 4 mintues total then wipe it up till the area is dry. Dont have any fans going or anything else that might speed up the drying process. If you wait to long to get the sealer off the tile, apply more sealer then wipe it right off. It seals the grout after 2-3 aplications (wait a couple hours between them) and it is water resistant, not waterproof just as advertized. Good luck and hope this helps March 9, 2016
