confused

just finished kitchen glass mosaic backsplash. HO went to purchase sealer to the tile store where she purchased the tiles. They told her they do not sell the sealer for glass mosaic, recommend her to go to Lowe's - get the sealer and brush to apply the sealer only on grout.
Can I just use regular sealer or glass tiles require some special?

Hi Michal

Don't worry if you get the sealer on the tile. Just make sure it doesn't dry on the surface (of the glass tile). As Cameron mentioned, the glass tile doesn't need sealing, but depending on the size of the tile, it might not be practical to only seal the grout joints.
