how many times am I supposed to wipe the tile after grout?

I have done it 6 times. I have changed the water 3 times and it is still hazing up. Is it okay to leave a haze on there until the grout is dried and the remove it before sealing or do i have to have it clean immediately?

When you get the haze, try a dry towel or cloth (ok, maybe slightly damp) instead of a wet one.

btw...one clean bucket of water, one bucket to squeeze into. Worked for me.

No expert here.....

Hopefully you did not wipe it down with a wet sponge 6 times if the grout isn't cured yet? Adding that much water can cause more harm to the grout.

I only do one good pass with fresh water and reverse the sponge after every wipe. If there's haze left over, I wait till the grout has set up for a few hours then take a microfiber cloth over it.

i did go over it with a damp sponge that many times. I used just enough pressure to move the sponge. It was barley wet. I guess we will see.
Also, my tile isnt perfectly smooth. Its rough and has some small pits in it. What is the best way to clean the grout out of those pits before everything dries?
