Grout sealer stained my grout

Hey guys.

So I have black grout modified sanded grout 600. Shower floor.

I went to seal it with aqua mix sealers gold choice. I went to check on it the next day to do another coat and there is white haze looking stuff all over my grout. When I wet it , it turns black again.

What is this and how do I get rid of this haze?

Please tell us how you applied the sealer. After applying it and waiting 5 to 7 minutes, did you polish it dry? Or did you allow it to dry on its own?

The picture isn’t quite so clear to me. Are the grout joints completely filled with grout and flush with the tile, or are they recessed? I ask because I’m wondering if you also polished the excess sealer away from possibly deep grout joints. If excess sealer is allowed to dry, it typically leaves a white foggy haze.
