how long to wait before cleaning grout off tile

I just grouted - the grout was probably a little dry - but it was a small bathroom - so I could do it quickly, and I didn't want to risk over watering the grout.

Anyway - grouting is done and tile is a mess of course - so how long should I wait until I wipe off the tiles with a wrung out terry cloth?

grout was Tex-rite modified polymer sanded grout

Thanks

MIke

Hopefully by the time you finished typing this, you went back and started to clean it.

yeah, I figured - its all clean now - is there a recommended cleaner to use in a couple of days as a final step before sealing everything.

You can buy grout haze removers or you might try washing it with vinegar. Rinse well.

If it's all clean as you say, nothing needed, just seal it, don't wet it before sealing.
