I second and sometimes even final wash a third time.
I use a blanket to get ALL the haze off the first time.

Fresh wash but here is the key (don't start freshwashing if when you rub your finger on grout it smudges on your finger Does that make sense? otherwise you just keep spreading film onto the tiles.Here is the method, new sponge clean water with no weight run sponge across tiles maybe 2' worth flip sponge and wipe next to your last run then rinse sponge and move on. When done methodically you can almost eliminate cheesecloth altogether.Here is a question do people still use lemon oil on high glaze tiles?
