The next pic is after the 2nd sponging. In between spongings, the grout was allowed to haze over again, and the grout got a bit firmer in the joints.

Tips from this pro;

1- Keep those sponges clean. Change the bucket of water if you need to.
2- Don't press to hard as to scrub the grout out of the joints. If you find you are taking too much grout out you have some choices;
A- Use a less damp sponge
B- Use a firmer sponge
C- Wait a little longer

In the photo below you will notice there is no grout on the face of the tiles, aside from the haze.
