I like the natural hills and valleys in this tile, but the grout collected in many of the low spots and no matter how carefully I cleaned, a lot of spots of excess grout remained on the tiles.

Good Afternoon,
To remove the excess grout on the tile, our samples department recommends haze remover. We always recommend Custom Building Products setting and installation materials, which are sold at the Home Depot. Follow the directions on the bottle, allowing the product to sit for about 5 minutes to activate, then remove with a bristle brush (i.e. cleaning bush or tooth brush). Try to be cautious around the actual grout lines around the tile, as it could remove that grout as well. Be sure to wash the excess chemical from the tile with warm soapy water so that it does not sit on the tile surface and cause damage. Prior to the chemical approach, you can try warm soapy water with a bristled brush to try and remove the grout if you would like. If you have any further questions, please contact our customer service team at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

Hello PapaJohn,
With a dry, lint-free cloth, remove excess grout from the

Answer: 
Good Afternoon,
We do not typically recommend using this tile on the floor, but in a low-traffic shower, these could work if they are properly installed. A proper subfloor is key as it could prevent cracking and breaking, so if you choose to install these on the floor of your shower, you do so with care. If you have any further questions, feel free to reach out to our customer service team at

For instance, it is 11 and 3/4 by 11 and 3/4. Could it be cut into smaller strips or sizes. Also, what type of glue do you use for holding putting it on your wall?

Good morning,
This natural shell tile is set on mesh backing, which means that you can use scissors to cut strips or pieces of tile. If you need to cut the tiles themselves, a wet saw would be your best option.

This tile is set using thinset material, which acts as the glue between the tile and the surface it’s being installed on. You may instead use silicone to install this product in some places, such as on interior walls where there is no exposure to water or heat, but we recommend traditional thinset as the best installation method.
Hope that helps! Read Less

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect for the beach house Used this as an accent stripe in my shower at the beach, with a tile that looked like a travertine. Everybody who sees it comments on how perfect it is. The colors are beige tones, with taupe, a few browns, etc. My contractor said that since this tile is a lot thinner than the surrounding tile, they decided to put some sort of backer board behind it to even things out. It's a very good bang for the buck...impressive, but since you don't need a lot, it's good. It is now two years old, and still looks brand new. March 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I simply love it! I purchased this tile to cover an entire wall behind a freestanding tub, I used a sand colored grout and it is just absolutely beautiful. The accent lighting adds to it's beauty. Everyone who sees it loves it! So glad I made this choice and spent the money, I couldn't be happier! October 26, 2011
