Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by LMP Do not use! Reviews are spot on
I was in the store and bought this before reading any reviews. When it left a white mess in all of my brand new tile joints I looked it up on the website. The other reviews are spot on! This is a terrible product and unless you want additional work do not use it because I will be spending my Sunday attempting to fix this mess.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MG31 Horrible Product
This is a super easy to apply nightmare. It claims to be water-based, i.e.: super easy clean up if you get some on your tile. After applying this to a room, all of the grout went from a dark brown to very light brown and there are now spots all over the tile where it "bled" off the grout. As this product goes on clear, it's difficult to tell if some spills onto the tile, being "water-based" that shouldn't be a big deal. Four hours of scrubbing with vinegar, I still have spots on my tile and my grout is still the wrong color. I wouldn't be surprised to learn that this is in fact not water based, I'll have to remove all of my grout to fix the area.

This grout sealer permanently stained the brand new glass tiles in a new bathroom remodel.
The product is inexpensive, but my bathroom remodel was expensive.
It's been a very upsetting experience.

I used this on my Charcoal colored grout and it left a white residue on the grout that I cannot remove. I read that a previous purchaser had the same issue so I am going to try his method of removing the white residue and hope that works. Just spent a ton of money on new floors and I am terrified that I just ruined them.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by SRAG My big regret
I am so upset. I just spent thousands (and thousands) of dollars redoing my entire kitchen. I bought this to seal the grout on the back splash. Unfortunately, it dripped onto my brand new concrete counter top and left a white residue. I looked online and saw that people used a sulfamic acid cleaner to remove this residue. It did NOT work for me. I cannot get this residue off.
My entire kitchen remodel is basically ruined. I cannot just replace these counter tops because they were poured in place and there is no way to get them off. I am devastated about this purchase. I'll try to post pictures. DO NOT BUY.
Out of all the things I purchased for this kitchen who'd have thought that a $6.00 purchase would be my greatest regret. I really wish I could go back in time and not buy this. I can't express enough how it has ruined my beautiful counter tops.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by LMBINPDX If you're looking for a leaky mess...
look no further. No idea if the sealant works. This product is sabotaged by the applicator. Instead of the brush aiding in precise application, the sealant just comes squirting out from below the "brush" and now there are permanent drip marks on my tile - despite my speedy attempt to clean up the drips. If you care about your tile, don't use this product. And frankly, if you don't care about your tile you wouldn't bother sealing the grout at all. If you're taking the time to do this, DON'T buy this product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Robert So easy to apply
I applied 2 coats. The first coat went on very easily and you could tell it was being absorbed by the grout. The 2nd coat sort of sat on the surface of the grout except at those places where I may have missed or applied too lightly with the 1st coat. After applying the second coat it was obvious that the grout was well sealed.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ButterflyAway Use Impregnator Instead
I bought this product to seal the grout on 1" shower tiles on three new showers. On the first shower, I meticulously went over each line of grout with the bottle's little brush on tip. The sealer drizzles out of the plastic tip before it even touches the bristles, unless the surface is completely horizontal. Therefore it is a mess to use on vertical shower walls. Upon returning to Home Depot, I discovered that I could have used an "impregnator" that would last for many more years, but now I get the pleasure of removing this "sealer" in a year or two and then using the "impregnator". We bought "511 Impregnator Sealer" for the remaining two showers, put it in a spray bottle, sprayed the surface of the shower, waited a few minutes, wiped it down good, and done in a matter of minutes instead of hours!
