Fingers crossed for ya, John.

I tried both those products on a hidden section of my marble floor tiles and they made no difference. But I was using a single component grout, so not...

Looks like un-sanded from here, Peter. Agree with John on removing it by hand. And you'll need to get most of it out so that the new grout will adhere; about two thirds of the thickness of the tile,...
