Main floor is done! I've tiled up to my soft joint. I'm going to grout this area so that I can start moving some stuff around as I'm running out of space.

I've washed all my tiles of thinset, they are kinda hazy since all I did was move it around and wash it all up.

My questions are:

1) do I need to get them 100% clean before grouting.

2) is using grout release a worthwhile effort vs some extra cleaning. I'm concerned about release getting into the joints.

3) I have about an 1/8" gap between my free corner tile and the steel post. It's free and clear of debris, but I'm wondering if I should have opened up that gap a little. I have 1/4" on the other side.
