Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FunTiling Thickness is the key
After trial and error I found that when you have the right thickness, you can grout using this bag with ease.
I used sanded grout for 1/8 and 1/4 gaps,
both worked very well.
I made the thickness easy to squeeze out
like tooth paste, I don't put too much in the bag
at a time so it is easy to handle.
Of course, you still have to wear you rubber gloves
to smoothen the gaps make sure
they are filled well and remove the excess before

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by BooBooBear Grout Bag
This was the worst product I ever tried to use. The hole to squeeze the grout thru was like trying to unclog a toilet . I have problems with my hands and wanted to get something to make my project easier and go much quicker, and let me tell you trying to squeeze the grout out was pretty much next to impossible. I ended up having to put my hand inside the bag to try and get the grout out and ended up wasting alot of grout and making a huge
mess, and wasted alot of valuable time and I ended up having to use my fingers to get the grout on the tiles and use the rubber float to try and spread it thru. I would never ever recommend this product to anyone.

Have used this bag for a bathroom (walls & floor) and a bedroom floor. It works great! Especially on the walls there was a lot less mess. It does take strong hands to push the grout out, but nothing I couldn't handle (female, 56 years old). My husband came after me with a grout float to make sure all the gap was filled and smoothed it out. I was easily able to stay ahead of him. The bag is also very easy to clean out in between jobs. Just spray out with water.

I had to fill in some holes in my masonry where the grout was blown out from sandblasting. Two people recommended getting a grout bag. I watched a few YouTube videos and it seemed easy enough, but I found the bag impossible to use. No matter the consistency i made the grout mix, i could not get it to squeeze through the bag. I also cut the tip to make the opening bigger. That did not help. I tried several different ways of rolling /squeezing/ twisting the bag..no avail. While squeezing the bag, only gray water would make its way through the bag, and all my grout substance would stay stuck in the bag. I gave it two good college tries before tossing it in favor of a trowel. I have pretty thin forearms and not very strong wrists and realized that the YouTube videos depicted large beefy men with huge hands and wrists/forearms...So i'd say dont waste your time if you arent the type that does forearm curls at the gym.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ginger Used this for masonary grout filling
I was worried at first if this was going to be helpful or a waste of time after reading the previous reviews. But for use in the "top layer " of a block foundation that already had a house on it it was Awsome!! After setting the block with shimms the grout bag made it possible to then fill the mortar jonts inbetween each block wich are almost impossible to get to because no space left between the house and the rebuilt foundation wasll! Can say I would reccomend for this application and since thats the only way I used it, That;s all I can say about that!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Diyer247 More trouble than its worth
I tried this thinking it would save time in application and clean-up. It is too difficult to to get the right amount in the joints to make sure there are no voids. You end up having to use more grout on top of what you just put down with the grout bag. Therefore, you make just as much mess when you have to smooth the grout lines with the float anyway. I also thought it would decrease the amount of unused/wasted grout, but it didn't. So much gets left in the bag by sticking to the sides, that it just isn;t worth using.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Patricia Grout bag was a waste of time and money
I ended up throwing this piece of junk away after 15 minutes of futzing with it. Unless the grout was precisely correct consistency, it was very difficult to get out. It may have worked better on a floor, but was quite heavy to hold up and squeeze hard on a wall, especially the higher areas above my head.
furthermore, it didn't save on any product either. I used just as much grout spreading it all over the tile with the float the regular way.
Save your money and don't buy one.
