Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Alex Works as advertised, difficult to apply
We had tile installed on our first floor. We chose a charcoal colored grout, but after installation and time allowed to dry the grout turned white. I found this enhancer for stone and grout at local HD. Upon installation I did find the product to go on as any other sealer, now the removal was a different story. Instructions state not to allow to dry but must sit for 5 minutes to allow to penetrate the grout. After the 5 minutes I did find the product to gel a bit making it more difficult to removed but I have to say it did the job as advertized, grout was enhanced to a dark Charcoal color (why we bought the product) and even the tile darkened a bit. Now if water finds itself on the tile or grout it just sits there, I also found the tile not as slippery when wet. Product works well if you are willing to put the time in to apply it correctly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CentralValleyJohn Have had excellent results on outdoor patio stone tables
I am a bit surprised at the less than stellar results posted by others. We have a two stone "tile" patio tables which are in the beating California sun for most of the day. After several years the stone was fading quite a bit and looked very weathered. I will admit this product is not used liked "windex" and takes a small bit of elbow grease. However the results are well worth it as this is the second season I have used it and our tables look new again. I have also used it on the stone ledge above our swimming pool. The same fantastic results have been obtained. The only downside that I can speak of is the cost, quite expensive to say the least,

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Brad Professionally used... HATED IT
Ill never buy this again. Did a average job of enhancing a polished travertine floor and grout. Product was next to impossible to get off the floor. Buffed and buffed AND BUFFED. Kept streaking and smearing all over the floor. Used wet soapy towels on a buffer took 45 minutes to complete one section. 511 enhancer did a much better job in 5 minutes.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by sb Aweful! Hazy residue all over our backsplash...
Run...this is the worst!
Anybody know how to get the hazy residue off of our mosaic backsplash? At $15 a mosaic tile, I'd love to improve the appearance and not have to rip it off the wall?!?!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by keithan Please Heed Earlier (Unfortunately Negative) Reviews
The title of this review obviously sets the tone. Ok, here's the "crux", so to speak.
This product - in my experience - did two things...
1. enhanced the backsplash tile color quite dramatically. no issue there.
2. it caused awful, grotesque, greasy stains. (think of a paper bag after it's been used to carry a pile of freshly fried chicken ... with no interior liner to prevent bleed through)
it's item #2 that's the problem, obviously. and i cant' live with the defect.
*So*, i'm ripping out several days and evenings worth of work - and restarting. A little painful, but i'm kind of a perfectionist and I just can't live with this. This product is a fail, plain and simple.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by db1953 Run as fast as you can from this product!!!!!
We had a brand new $6000 Honed absolute black granite counter installed. We wanted to seal and enhance. We made a horrible mistake and chose this product!!! Whatever you do , do not buy this
PRODUCT!!! It leaves a filmy greasy mess and requires hours of work just to remove!!!
If you are reading this and have made the same mistake wipe it off as fast as you can with
mineral spirits and then wash with a mild detergent. We are not 100% back to normal but at least this product is off the surface of our stone. I cannot even imagine that this can be sold!!!
We have advised Home Depot to remove from their shelves. Hopefully they will do so.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 3dayeventer HORRIBLE, RUN FOR THE HILLS. TERRIBLE STENCH FOR over 2 MONTHS NOW
I bought this sealer over 2 months ago and applied EXACTLY as directed on the bottle. Not only was there ZERO "enhancement effect, it left a HORRIBLE Stench in my shower, bedroom, the whole hallway now smells like the product. It's like a vomit smell from a really sleezy bar. The customer service was just as nasty, they won't even offer a suggestion to get rid of the smell. I'm going to file complaints with home depot and with the BBB, products like this should NEVER be sold.
