Ceramic tile and a little "oops"

Hi-

I am finishing my basement and put down a ceramic tile floor in the bathroom. The tiles went down fine, but when I grouted the tile, I think I waited a little too long before I sponged the excess grout off the surface of the tiles. Now my once shiny white tiles are dull and grey with a thin haze of dried on grout. If I SCRUB each 8x8 tile with a stiff brush and soft scrub for about 5 minutes, it seems to remove the haze, but I was wondering if there was an easier way to remove this haze without risking a scratch on the new tiles and without having to spend 5 minutes on each individual tile!

Thanks for your time,
Steve

sulfamic acid is weaker than muriatic and stronger than vinegar,it comes ina jar of crystals and can be purchased at any tile shop, sorry should have added that in there in the first place
