Question do i need to wash

I just posted the question about vinegar, maybe i asked the wrong question. I installed honed travertine, then grouted. I had taked some bad advice about using pencil on the stone while cutting, the marks wouldn't come off. I just scrubbed the floor with #0000 steel wool. It looks great! I vacuumed the floor. Do I need to wash the stone or can I seal it. There is no grout haze, I washed well while grouting, but I am sure there is some stone dust still there from the steel wool. I am using an enhancer sealer.

Wouldn't hurt to give it a quick damp mop and as soon as it dries, seal away. Hope ya didn't shine it up too much with the steel wool, so it doesn't resist sucking in the sealer.

My take on this will be somewhat different from Dave's. Follow the directions on your enhancer as far as wait-time after grouting. Usually it's three days but again, follow your enhancer's instructions. It will be there on the bottle.
