tile grout

How do you remove set grout from a slate tile surface? It seems to have turned the tile black. Luckily I only have a few that were not cleaned off properly.

Grout removal

Dried grout is the same as dried concrete. It is next to impossible to remove. Some forum posts report success using lots of water and oak sticks to force the dried grout off tiles. Wearing gloves prevents splinters and oak sticks can be sharpened. Grout release products are recommended for unglazed and rough textured tiles to prevent grout problems. Grout clean up while grout is still damp is recommended. Avoid using metal scrapers.
