View Full Version : Is it True: Don't mist tinted grout to cure?

We were up 'til 3am grouting the shower and the non-showered floor. Thankfully the wife went with the same tinted grout for both. I read in The Home Depot Tiling 1-2-3 book that I should not be misting the tinted grout with water to cure it because it could discolor it. What do we do then... nothing??

If in doubt read the instructions from the manufacturer of the grout. The back of the Mapei bags that I use say not to damp cure it. I think this is the general rule to follow with any of the modified grouts.

Dunno about Mapei, they are special orders here. For Custom, I just cover with paper and let cure for a day or two. The whole misting drill, which I have done in the past, hasn't really paid off for me. Simple is good.
