View Full Version : Mortar residue on my shoulders makes me grumpy...

I'm about to grout the floor of my shower, but there is a good amount of mortar residue left on the surface of the tiles.

I bought a product called TileLab Heavy Duty Cleaner and Stripper. It says it will remove light cement grout haze and mortar residue.

Should I worry about the cleaner affecting the mortar that is holding the tiles or the mortar bed below the tiles?

Any other suggestions? I'd like to get the tiles shining!

I'd take a nylon scrubby pad and some water to those tiles.

There's a lotta residue on those tiles. You sure they aren't grouted yet. :)

Man, I've tried scrubbing with water and I've been scraping with some tools, and I can't get some of that stuff off. You don't recommend that cleaner that I bought.

And nope, I haven't grouted yet, unless the Grout Fairy has visited me in the middle of the night. Dang, she's messy.
