Tile Sealing

I had new tiles put in on all three walls in my shower. I think they are glazed tile because they are very shiny. Sanded grout was used in between the tiles. Does this grout need to be sealed and if so what product would I use? I don't want to scratch my new tiles.

Thank you

Grout of any kind is not water proof, so yes it must be sealed.

Any grout sealer will work. As it is on the walls, you may want to consider using a spray bottle to apply. Grout is properly sealed when you spray water on it and the grout no longer changes color from getting wet. Spray on and wipe off. Do not let grout sealer dry on the tile itself.

Grout sealer

Thank you so much. The spray bottle of grout sealer that I got said not to use it on glazed tile. As long as I spray it on and wait a second wipe it off would that be ok? I really appreciate the help..
