Questions & Answers


How would you apply this product to the grout?

Asked by Corey January 8, 2013

I am shocked by these suggestions. The SIMPLE and FOOL-PROOF way to do this is to use painters tape, and tape along the exact edge of the tile, exposing just the grout line (obviously you don't tape the whole tile, just the edge against the grout line). Taping like this is super easy. Then, just use a small brush (toothbrush, small painters brush, etc) to paint on the grout line, working back and forth nicely. Remove tape. Done, and beautiful. I am not a pro and had never done this before, and I did my whole bathroom this way in under and hour, start to finish. Not a dot gets on the tile, so there's nothing to wipe off.

Asked by BJ December 23, 2018

I love what this product did. It’s my first time using it and it changed the look of my entire kitchen.

Will this product apply a light color over dark grout? We have a bathroom with black grout and we hate it!

Asked by McNair82 August 19, 2012

Never apply a lighter color of this product over a dark color, despite the claims. You have been warned.

Can be used to fill in the crack for the bathroom ceramic tile ?

Asked by Maya February 16, 2018

no its just a color paint to the grout

Future maintenance - sealing?

Asked by BC August 22, 2015

Regardless to the other answers, the answer to this question is that it is a sealer as well. I've applied in 2 bathrooms, walls and floors, over 3 years ago and it still looks great. Best to apply over non-sealed grout if possible. If not, I would recommend acidic based cleaner first. One bath I had previously sealed with a clear sealer before deciding to color change. It would not stick to this so I had to clean with acid. After that, all went well. This is a great product and I highly recommend. .

Do I need to clean the old grout before using grout renew colorant?

Asked by Clair February 20, 2019

We did. You want it to adhere, and if it is dirty, it might not.

does it still needs grout sealer after application?

Asked by den May 27, 2018

I did use a sealer eventhough the product stated it contained a sealer. Truth be told, I was actually trying to get the grout a little darker rather than really seal the grout anymore. Loved the product overall though.

Can this be used on shower tile?

Asked by Jason April 7, 2014


How to remove dried colorant from porcelain tile

Asked by Cody August 4, 2016

I used Clorox cleaning wipes, a plastic scraper, and a LOT of elbow grease. (I removed the excess from shiny porcelain tile.) Be careful to keep the chemicals AWAY FROM the grout line or you’ll ruin all your hard work. And in the future use a very thin (grout width) paint brush to apply it. I leaned this the hard way also!

if you end up not liking the color, can you go over it with a different color?

Asked by Crystal February 8, 2020

Yes, sometimes! If you first use a dark color, going lighter can be a problem. If you are only changing a shade or two, it should work.

Super Easy!
Pros: very easy, very inexpensive, looks great Cons: hard to determine correct color, samples pics/labels aren't exact, only way to know is to sample on floor - which could get costly. 5 hour project completely transformed and updated grout. Very easy to apply - I used the blue tape suggestion and an artist brush - available in a small assorted set in the paintbrush section at Home Depot. Worked right from the bottle - no extra container needed. Cleans very easy with water, and doesn't run or bleed through blue tape, so clean-up is really easy. Did the whole room and still have about a quarter bottle left!

Amazing product!!!! Tile looks brand new!!!
These are 2 different clients houses I've used the product at. Amazing transformations. The one house had plain color tiles and it looks like we put new floors in now. The other house the colors in the tile really pop now.

Amazing difference
Spent forever scrubbing the grout with different cleaners meant for grout and could NOT get the stains out. Spent several hours painting this stuff on...but it was worth it! Amazing difference.

White grout looks brand new!
I used bright white. It says a bottle does 80 sq feet. My lanai is about 160 sq ft with 18 inch tiles. I still have some product left in the bottle. Looks like new grout. Hope it washes and wears well.

After thoroughly cleaning the old grout, I put a layer of Custom Building Projects Custom Warm Gray Aquamix Grout Colorant on the grout but decided it was the wrong color so I purchased this Polyblend Snow White color and layered it on top of the Aquamix. Since it's from the same manufacturer, it went on perfectly. I used a paint brush and cleaned the tile along the way. It did take about 6 days to do two coats but it now looks awesome. I feel like I have a new floor! The color is great and is holding well and I'm very happy with it.

glazed ceramic tile
Let me start off by mentioning that our house was built six months ago. We have a little over two thousand sq ft of tile we needed to recolor because we chose white grout and we have four dogs. We have ceramic glazed tile and the best way i found to do this was apply it with a toothbrush and let it dry for three days before going over it with a scouring pad to remove it from the tile. Doing it in small sections and wiping it away would just take too long for my liking. It comes off easily on the glazed tile

Polyblend was absolutely easy to apply (with a really thin paint brush), it gave my bathroom tiles a fresh clean look. Downside painting the grout was time consuming but very easy with patience and great music to listen to while you work.
