Rated 3 out of 5 by from Previous on-line comments of Tile and Grout SEALERS seemed to favor the "Miracle" brand Grout Se... Previous on-line comments of Tile and Grout SEALERS seemed to favor the "Miracle" brand Grout Sealer, specifically #511, over water-based products such as this "Tile Lab" product. The Miracle-511 is more expensive, and requires the payment of a small so-called "RECYC$ PAINTCARE FEE" at the time of purchase. I ENDED UP USING BOTH COMPANIES PRODUCTS! Many reviewers considered many of the products sold to be "useless." [The #511 product has a base that is mineral spirits, or at least it has to be cleaned up with mineral spirits the bottle says. Let's call it "solvent based."] Putting both types on, I noticed that the aqueous-based form (this Tile Lab product) is MUCH "runnier", while the solvent-based (#511) seems "thicker" and it (#511) does (initially) dry more quickly such that you can feel the "drag" on the paint brush as I spread it along the grout lines in a shower stall with Porcelain or Ceramic tiles (the shiny ones, NOT natural stone as mentioned in many of the evaluations here where people have used these products on floors). I used these TWO DIFFERENT products for a shower stall, in a 45 year old townhouse, after cleaning the grout that had not been well cleaned for 26 years. [The grout was stained in many areas, so the "cleaning" became "cleanings" that took a lot of work, scrubbing and brushing vigorously, using a wire brush in some areas. No doubt that most of this stall ended up being bare grout, and some of it very thin!] This aqueous-based (Tile Lab) product has KOH (potassium hydroxide) in it, so you must handle it carefully (protecting eyes and skin!). With successive applications of both products, it was unclear how much the base (KOH/Water, vs. spirits) removed or "cut" the prior application layer. [And I was unable to find any knowledgeable help on this issue.] How does one determine when you have enough coats (enough protection) on? It is noted that BOTH labels mention reapplying the product in order to remove excess prior application, so exactly WHEN does "the Law of Diminishing Returns" apply here?? Seriously, I am at a loss on this issue! How does one tell when you have enough product on? I saw the "test it with water" recommendation, but does "just one more coat" help or hurt, or is it (just) a waste?? [With BOTH products I used, the grout seemed to keep taking up the product with each subsequent application, so I do not think that this characteristic (not taking up the product) is a valid measurement of "being done."] I wish that there were some reliable professional guidance on this matter somewhere.... [I did mention that to our local store manager in a review of my store experience.] Application onto a vertical tile wall is of course not as easy as doing a (horizontal) floor where gravity is your friend, and helps hold the product onto the grout! On the other hand, gravity allowed me to "run" both forms of sealer "down" the vertical grout lines. I used the brush with a generous amount of product on it, and with slight pressure, I applied the product to each grout groove, and let it run down the grout lines, applying more product further down when the "drip" stopped running. [Be aware that the aqueous form often "jumped the track" using it this way, meaning it deviated out of the grout lines onto the tile itself--I guess because of surface tension. The 511 stays "in the groove" all the way down!] For the horizontal grout lines, though, I actually had to BRUSH the sealers on, for their entire lengths! Although you CAN spray-on some sealers, for MY application (vertical, non-stone shower walls), that way wastes a lot of product--running down the drain! For just grout lines, I'd advise using a small (~3/8ths or 1/2 inch wide) paint brush--I used a tiny, #8 paint brush. Either way, don't forget to wipe up the product that collects at the bottom of each wall--I doubt that you want this on your shower floor, or coating your tub! Both of these products covered caulk okay, and neither softened the acrylic caulk (the way that one earlier reviewer here mentioned about another product--permanently softening their caulk). I did not see that problem! . HELPFUL HINTS: For both forms of sealer, water-based and solvent-based, seeing what you are doing on a grout line can be difficult, even in bright light. The best solution I found is to use a TROUBLE LIGHT--using it to shine at a steep angle so that you look directly at the direct reflection of the light bulb itself. Then, you can see exactly where the product is and is not! Using the light at an angle also allows one to see any hazing from the products. [I suppose that you could use a flashlight the same way for this....] This lighting usage showed me numerous areas where I had to wipe harder! Warning--you just cannot see these problems with straight-on or general room lighting! Interestingly, the Tile Lab (aqueous) product HAZES (as per the label warnings) if you don't dry it off quickly enough (a problem in our dry Colorado air!); while the "511" clearly left a "greasy" or "oily" appearance over the shiny tiles after I dried them with a cloth/towel. Ultimately, upon drying overnight, that "greasy" appearance seen at an angle disappears--it is my guess that even the old shiny tiles benefited by becoming protected by #511! BOTH product forms that I used DO darken white grout upon application--but do not worry, the darkening fades away once they dry (in hours). [That issue had me quite worried for a while, but in the end it all looked just as white as ever!] . RESULTS: Yes, you get a slight "haze" over the shower tiles with the Tile Lab product. The #511 did seem to repel water better, even from the tile surfaces themselves, and I have NO visible water spotting on even the tiles themselves now; but I do not know how either of these products stands up over the long run.... Perhaps there are some professional experts out there who can help us with this? [I did propose getting/publishing such input to our local store operations manager.] ...

I tried this product 3 years ago over my tile in kitchen. I have no problems with food stains on my grout lines or anything else. I have used this 2 twice already. Everything seems to wipe up well. Whether it lasts 20 years or not, I not able to say. I just do the grout lines once a year as I use a steam cleaner on my tile. But worth it and easy to use. Not as expensive, no large containers(easy storage) and not hard to apply like other products
