I would give it a couple of days, but overnight usually is enough.

Thumbs up

Thanks Jay!......... Couple of days it is, as I'm not in a big hurry, and I want it to be right.

are you talking about 2" or 2' ?

and is this on a slab?

the 2" will dry faster. if they are 2'x2' give them a couple days like Jay said.

Not a problem, you gotta get on it when you grout it anyway, just give it at least a day before walking on it.
