Haze on Porcelain Tile

Recently installed porcelain tile on top of outside bar and grouted as usual....Polyblend grout was used and regular process to clean grout after set up was followed. Now there seems to be a haze on top of tiles that will not come off...have washed 3-4 times since. Any suggestions on how to remove/clean tiles?

Thank you

50:50 water and vinegar will take it right off. Happened to me on pretty much the same tile, same grout and on a outside kitchen area.

Kevin, you might wanna start by typing haze into the Advanced Search and asking for Titles. Couple hundred discussions of the problem in all of its many forms out there.

Something else to check out just in case: If your grout is new and is a darker color you might want to try a smaller spot with less vinegar and use a white buffing pad, it will not harm the tile but will possibly allow you to use a more dilute mixture and that will protect grout color particularly on uncured grout joints.
