“Grout Renew” Stain & Sealer

Standard

As much as I love my new tiled mudroom, I didn’t love the grout color I chose.  It’s called “Bone” and it dried a bit lighter than I was hoping for.  I hadn’t sealed the grout joints yet and was told about a stain & sealer all in one.  I found it at Home Depot, it’s called “Grout Renew” and it comes in several different colors.  I went with “Sandstone” and now I love it.  Toward the bottom of the picture with the bottle, you can see the old grout color vs. the new grout color.  The stain is like the consistency of paint, make sure you shake it very well.  I just poured out a small amount onto a paper plate and used a toothbrush (recommended) to brush the stain into every grout joint.  I’d recommend doing a few tiles at a time and wipe excess off as you go.  Depending on the temperature in your house it can try fairly quickly.  I just kept a damp rag with me and it wiped up off the tiles very easily.  It was a little tedious but totally worth the time.  I love this product and would totally recommend it!!  It’d be a great grout update if you have existing tile you want to freshen up or change the color of the grout.  P.S. I guess I took my pics at different times of the day – the stain did not change the color of my tile – it’s just the lighting.  😉
