Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BB101 Clean up after your sloppy do-it-yourself job
Okay okay - I know all do-it-yourselfers consider themselves to be experts at everything; and grouting / tiling is no different. Until you realize after you have done the grouting job that wow, you really need to find a way to clean up some of this left-over hazy grout leave-behind.
Fortunately my efforts were done on a white canvas so the haze of the left behind grout was less obvious until you ran your hands over the stone.
Enter Haze-B-Gone. I had not heard of this product before but basically its a microfiber mitten with some cleaning powder inside. (Which you can by refills of if you are doing lots of grouting work). At any rate you put the powder in the glove, you stick your hand in the glove and wipe wipe wipe. After a few minutes smack the glove a bit to get the powder re-distributed and keep going. What amazed me was how well this worked. And that its not abrasive to my hand. Highly recommend for those looking to clean up after doing some grout work.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wilson Haze b Gone Grout Haze Cleaner Works!
Haze b Gone is patented as a safe, environmentally friendly and easy-to-use method for removing cement grout haze and mortar residue from tile surfaces. I just had a floor updated with porcelain tile so this is a great time to try this haze cleaner. The package comes with a cleaning pad and activator to be poured into the pad and sealed. There is an opening on the pad that fits like a mitt to place your hand in for easily holding the pad while you clean. I patted the pad activator as instructed and moved the pad over each tile to clean. The residue came up. I swept the area and cleaned with water. Now the floor looks clean as you can see in the attached close-up picture. I cleaned up a 54 square foot area.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by OrganicinClovis Interesting product
This product was interesting to use. It was a little large on my small hands but still works really well. It's kind of like using microfiber cloth with magic eraser results on tile installs. It definitely cleans the haze from grout installation. There is a cleaner inside the mitt that comes out as you work. Amazingly it also cleaned white film off my shower doors. Bonus. Washes easily with water and you can reuse the mitt for other things after the grout cleaner is gone. I use it to wash down countertops, walls, doors, etc. I like this versatile mitt.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ih82spd The worst part about installing tile/grout is the grout haze. Now tiling is enjoyable again as a DIYer
I have always like to install tile as a DIYer, but the worst part was always cleaning up the grout haze after grouting, or fixing grout. After every swipe I would rinse in two buckets, one to clean the sponge, then into another to make sure it was clean. I would still have to wipe several times, and the cheese clothe method helped some. Haze B Gone on the other hand, I finished grouting, did my initial clean up of wiping up the extra grout, and just let the haze dry. Once it was dry I followed the instructions and with some elbow grease the haze cleaned up very nicely and with a lot less frustration. I will be buying refills.

This product literally did nothing to the grout haze. You open a package and dump what looks like powdered sugar into the glove, then you rub the tile. Doesn't make any sense right? Right. All it did was get everything messy and dusty. Got zero grout haze off the tile. Do NOT purchase. Trust me.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NoHaze Worked perfectly for us
Worked exactly as advertised. Used it on slate tiles, full of uneven surfaces. Had not been able to properly remove the haze with conventional methods, but this worked perfectly. The tiles were left clean and with a lovely shine. Did work-up a sweat, as one needs to put some elbow grease into it, and our choice of tiles was rough. Highly recommend it.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Governor Haze cleaning product
This product removes haze left over from the grouting process. Even though it is meant to remove the haze from a recent grouting, it can still be used to remove haze from a grouting process that occurred in prior months. The issue with this haze remover is that it is too prone to you having problems with applying the product. The powder that is used is added to a glove that is used to apply the haze remover and the powder is activated by clapping on the glove which will send it in the air that you breathe.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Duck I couldn't get it to do the job.
Maybe I didn't use it right, but I certainly tried to follow the directions.
We had new countertops installed in our kitchen, and installed a mosaic glass / metal / stone / tile backsplash. After grouting, the glass and metal pieces especially seemed dull, and there was some diluted grout material along the bottom of each piece that I hadn't gotten off with the sponge while grouting. We had hoped this would be an easy way to remove that and shine up the backsplash.
This is a mitt with a place to enter your hand, a place to enter a fine polishing powder with a loose weave polishing cloth to allow the powder through, and an impervious barrier between your hand and the polishing powder. You slap the mitt to release some powder and then scrub it over the tiles.
We scrubbed and scrubbed with the mitt, and couldn't get it to remove much of the haze at all. I couldn't tell that it removed any in our case. This partly may have been due to the fact that the instructions say to scrub up and down, but our backsplash is only a few inches tall so we had to scrub back & forth for the most part. We also may not have gotten enough powder through the cloth; it seemed to last longer than the instructions said it should.
In the end, we sprayed the tile with a vinegar solution and scrubbed with a plastic scrubber; it seemed to work better and more easily than this mitt.
