PLEASE HELP ME!!!!!

I have just tiled and grouted my kitchen floor. I washed the grout off 7 times but this morning there are still spots where there is dried grout on the surface of the tiles. They are rough finished porcelin tiles. How do I get the grout off the tiles?

If you're talking about a haze, and you're trying to get it off with a wet sponge or mop, try a dry towel instead. You may just be spreading it around.

I used muriatic acid and water, about 3 water to 1 acid. Put it on with a squeeze bottle and let it sit for a few minutes and wiped the tile with a cloth and water. Came right off. Didn't harm the tile. Use rubber gloves and wear a mask.
