Month old grout rubbing off

Hey all

Grouted my glass mosaic backsplash with supertek unsanded grout last month. I went over the grout job a second time because I thought it looked too low. I think this was probably a no'no.

Anyway...the grout rubs off if I go over it with a cloth..as I had noticed s few spots with leftover haze.

Can I go over this with grout sealer to minimize this issue?

Any input is greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance
Melissa

I don't think a grout sealer is going to solve your problem. Skimming over existing grout with new grout doesn't work well. Generally you need to remove the old grout and re-apply new grout.
