Tile sealing question

Okay so I bought and opened a matte tile sealer and I have shiny white and black ceramic tiles.... (I want them to stay shiny)

Can I get away with this sealer or should I just throw it out? Can I use the sealer with a sprayer and then come back to it say after 20 min or something and wipe it off the tile faces so it doesn't dull their appearance?

Thanks!

Glazed ceramic tile will not accept sealer. Sealer is only meant for natural stone.

That's the wrong type of sealer. I think you have a "finish", not a traditional sealer as used in the ceramic industry for sealing grout. What you have is for unglazed tiles.

Ah that would make more sense... So I guess what I really need to know is can I seal grout with this stuff or not?

Well, yes, but re-read what I said. If you had unglazed tiles, that sealer would be used to seal it and of course the grout too. But you don't, so get a penetrating grout sealer and follow the directions.
