Testing is the best path.

But it’s not a more thorough drying that you’re after. Haze is often caused by too much sealer sitting atop the material. All you’re trying to do with the method I’m...

Welcome to the forum, Jonathan. :wave:

I would ask if the fabricator sealed it. If so, ask for a small sample of the sealer. Apply the sealer to a small area where it looks hazy, allow it to...

I would tend to use a grout release or sealer specifically to help with clean up of the grout.
