floor grout blues - floor scrubber?

Recently I purchased a large rectangular white floor sanding pad from Lowe's. The pad is used for putting a high gloss finish on wood floors. I cut it into small pieces to remove grout haze and it did an excellent job. I also cut a round piece and fixed it to a auto polisher I got at Home Depot for $20. I used it to remove haze on a counter top. I have thought about using the pad on a small Hoover carpet cleaner to clean haze on floor tile. I was wondering if anyone else has used these or similar methods? This might be a solution for haze on floor tiles. - Hal

Hi Hal, necessity is the other of invention. Who knows, you may have found something.

This is as bad as it can get, but don't count on it.

Actually, the method has been around for quite sometime. On particularly nast quarry and or porcelain jobs. Throw a little silica sand out on the floor before buffing. Cuts the haze that much faster

I like the car polisher with the white scotchbright... at least when my daughter's in town, haha Why do anything standing up when you can do it on your daughters knees???

Makes her feel like she's earned her money.
