Wet a grout sponge or terry cloth towel with the cleaning solution, wring out excess liquid. Wipe diagonally across the tile. Repeat steps 4 and 5 every 10 to 15 ft (.9 M to 1.3 M) or as necessary. Remove residual cleaning solution using a clean grout sponge or terry cloth towel dampened with clean water only.

AFTER GROUT CLEANUP WITHIN 10 DAYS OF GROUTING: Use full strength if grout haze was not completely removed during grout cleanup.
