Does this product repel water?

This question is from TileLab 6 oz. Grout Sealer

It says that it repels stains--I have applied 3 coats but the grout still darkens when I mop meaning water is absorbing. Should I continue to apply coats until it no longer darkens/absorbs? Or does it just "repel" stains?

Answer: 
I'm a DIYer, not a Home Depot employee, just so you know.
I used a different grout sealer on part of my house, it it worked better than the TileLab sealer (it is no longer available). I have a lot of tile, so I'm breaking it up into "phases" to get it all done. I used TileLab sealer on the third phase of my grout sealing.

But, to answer your question, yes. You have to keep applying the sealer until water does not absorb. After your next application layer, let it dry at least three hours, then test it with a drip of water. If the grout gets darker, it is indeed absorbing the water and needs another layer of sealer. Good luck! Read Less

Drip Marks

This question is from TileLab 6 oz. Grout Sealer
Asked by

September 7, 2015
I used this product to seal the grout lines on shower walls that I just installed. The file I used is Travisano Trevi Porcelain Tile:

http://www.homedepot.com/p/MARAZZI-Travisano-Trevi-12-in-x-24-in-Porcelain-Floor-and-Wall-Tile-15-6-sq-ft-case-ULNF/205141222

During application the product dripped down the wall(s). I removed it within 5 minutes like the label stated. After I completed all 3 walls I noticed it left drip marks all over the tiles. How do I remove these marks?

Please help this is a brand new bathroom I just installed. Thank you.

Answer: 
To remove the drip marks off the porcelain tile use Nano Scrub. Agitate container well before using, pre wet surface, apply nano scrub directly over wet surface, scrub with a brush or nylon pad. Rinse thoroughly with water. If you need further assistance contact our care & maintenance division at 800.282.8786

What you are experiencing is a very common occurrence when sealing vertical installations. Nano Scrub will effectively remove the sealer residue off the tile without affecting the sealer in the grout joints.

Answer: 
All of our sealers have a two year shelf life. There would br either a stamp or sticker on the bottle which gives the date of manufacturing. The first 2 digits are the year it was manufactured and the next 3 numbers indicate the day of the year it was manufactured. Thank you

Rated 3.2 out of 5 by 130 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by My brand new mosaic looks like cr@p with residue all over it that won't come off. I would recommend this product to an enemy. It is on a matte mosaic tile and it looks like I've got hard-water stains all over. It is pretty bad when you step back to look at the work you did and the final product you used ruined it. From reading the other reviews, it looks like it is going to take some effort to get this stuff off of the tile-face. I have worked so hard on this bath remodel I don't even feel like trying to get the residue off at this point. July 18, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Awful! This grout sealer does not seal the grout. I've applied four layers of this sealant so far, and when I test it with water, it still is not sealed. I can see that is is getting better (that is, closer to the expected benefit), but WOW! why would it take so many application layers? It is noticeable that the bottle does not tell you how many layers it should take. And it does not tell you to test it with water after the drying time of 3 hours or more. (I let mine dry overnight each time.) I am not a novice. I cleaned and sealed my kitchen and entry way several months ago (maybe even a year ago). Home Depot had a different product at that time. It took two applications/layers and it was sealed. That product's instructions told you how many layers to expect and told you to test it by waiting X hours to dry and then put drops of water on it. If the water beaded up and was not absorbed, the grout was sealed. The kitchen and entry still are sealed and look great. When I got to the hallways, this (TileLab Grout Sealer) is the only product they had. I searched at two other hardware stores and they have a product that looks EXACTLY like this one. The packaging is the same and has very little instructions. My best guess is that it is the same product, just re-branded for different retailers. I wonder what happened to the previous grout sealer I used. Maybe environmental regulations changed and so the product had to change. I wish I had the bottle, but nope, I threw it away. I still have a lot of grout left to seal. I HATE the thought of applying 5+ layers of sealer to the rest of my tile flooring! By the way, all the other reviewers are right. The applicator is messy and the stuff gets all over the tiles. I didn't realize it was going to be so hard to remove. My prior sealer got on the tiles, but I had more control because I used a whole different process to get it on there. But there were some overlaps and drips. However, the drips came off after a few times of mopping the floor. (And yet, the grout is still sealed.) July 20, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by It's Adequate I figured the prepackaged bottle with sealer was a better deal than buying a bottle PLUS the sealer. For large jobs I think the latter is more appropriate, but if you have a small job then this Tilelab product is okay. I sealed 4x4” tiles for a shower enclosure and had just enough. The brush will probably only last for one-two jobs; the bristles get pretty bent after a while. It seemed to do a good job in terms of sealing, but I found application was not as easy as I expected. It was hard to get the sealer on the grout and not all over the tile. I actually changed over to a small brush after a time and used the bottle to augment what I was doing. So overall it’s probably a tad better than okay, but not excellent. May 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very user friendly, worked great. This sealer was very easy to use with the built in applicator....just brush it on. The sealing job went way faster than I expected, and it looks great. December 9, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I use this product to seal the grout for floors and tile backsplash. The applicator works great. The built in applicator is easy to use. Just unscrew the top and go. December 8, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Ok but you need to be careful when applying. This was hard to apply to the grout without it dripping all over the tile. If you don't wipe it off the tile right away it leaves a permanent streak on the tile. I am disappointed that I tiled my kitchen and now I have brand new streaky tile. The bottle does tell you to wipe any drips off the tile, which I did, but if you don't catch every drip before it dries then good luck getting it off! I feel like this bottle should come with a better applicator. May 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very good product but then I have solid white tiles in a new nenovated bathroom I hesitatingly purchased this product having read all the reviews but decided to take the chance as I had solid white subway tiles in my newly renovated bathroom. All the reviews and pictures showed white discoloration and staining on dark covered surfaces. I tested on a patch of grout near the floor and as luck would have it I had difficulty determining where I applied this sealer after having it dry for a day. Saw what I liked then "went to town" on a leisurely Saturday afternoon using the built in brush to sparingly apply over each grout line. Applied second coat 3 hours later then allowed funky smelling family members to use our renovated bathroom. It's now on week 3 and it's holding up remarkably well requiring only use of a squeegee after each shower to remove excess water off wall tiles and glass doors. Would I use it again?...yes, however if this product says what it does I suspect I will NOT have to re-apply grouter sealer for at least 6 months or more October 21, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Grout Sealer Extremely easy to Use. No muss No fuss application. May 17, 2016
