Enhance and seal with a spray-type?

Hi, I need some advice. I have ceramic tile in my basement that was layed about 2 months ago. The grout is sanded, "butter cream" color from Custom. As many others in the forum have had the same problem, the grout turned out lighter that I wanted. I need to seal the grout and was wondering if I could use an enhancer that is also a sealer? I have read that the enhancer makes the grout a litter darker in color. If this is a good idea, can I get an enhancer that I can spray on or should I get the kind to put on manually? Any advice is very much appreciated. I have never had tile before. Thanks, Gwen

Gwen i would first clean the grout with a haze remover to make sure it isn't just effloresence, or latex haze.Then if you need to you can use an enhancer, be sure the brand says it will darken grout, some don't and i would use a sealer applicator, or a small piece of sponge,and wipe the tiles dry before the sealer dries so it won't dry on the surface.
