Step 2

Pull out some grout using your forefinger and slide it into the space between the tiles, apply a thin layer of grout making sure to let it dry before another application. The level and depth of your application depend on the existing grout making sure you do not overfill. Wipe off the excess with a damp rag, then let it dry completely, drying time depends on the grout that you used, refer to the packaging instructions. Once the grout has dried, apply the grout sealer on top of it to make sure that it wouldn’t get dirty easily when you start mopping the floor.
