Cleaning Sealer Off Ceramic Tile

I am desperately looking for help! My kids decided to help me by sealing the grout on my new tile installation while I was at work. The sealer dried to the ceramic tile and has left a haze on it. (Shaw Tile, PEI 5). What can I do to remove the sealer (Aqua Mix Penetrating Sealer) from the tile without ruining the grout job? Would using a commercial floor buffer strip-off the sealer without stripping it from the grout?

I am open to any suggestions!

A buffer with a black or similar pad, and a heavy duty tile and grout cleaner may do the trick.We try not to use too harsh a cleaner,unless need be.As a last resort look on the bottle of sealer for a stripper suggestion.

Thanks Dave. I will check the bottle first and see what it suggests. I was too tired after damp scrubbing it over and over to think of that!! If that does not work, I will try the buffer. I will keep you posted and let you know which method works.
