Cleaning newly laid tile floors

I just laid tile floors. The grout will be sealed in the next few days. I have read that it takes 28 days for the grout to fully cure. What is safe to use to clean the tile during this time period. We have a dog, so I know the floors will need cleaning in this time. Is it best to use water only? Steam? Any cleaners ok?

A neutral tile or stone cleaner would be best.The 28 day rule is fine if the grout is kept wet,but if it dries out after a few days the curing stops,although with latex it could take longer,but do what the grout manuf says.
