What should I use to prevent grout from sticking to my pourous tile?

If you have not grouted yet; it will be best to use our item # 77005 Pre-Grouting Sealer.  This product works as a pre-grouting sealer to prevent grout from sticking to the surface of the stone or tile.  Stone or Tile should be clean, dry and free of waxes, coatings or finishes.  TileLab Heavy-Duty Cleaner and Stripper will clean the surface and remove wax and acrylic finishes. 


What cleaner should I use to clean my newly installed porcelain tile?

Lithofin FZ Intensive Cleaner or TileLab Heavy-Duty Cleaner and Stripper.
