Probably, but I'd still try a wet sponge and maybe a white scrubbie to see if I could get that fleece a little cleaner.

My opinion; worth price charged.

I did add a little more water as I broke up some clumps at the end
Did you add water to thinset that had already been mixed and slaked? I think that's a definite no-no. May be a good cause of the easy removal.

I second that you should not be adding water to the thinset. Weakens it significantly.

I've found that getting consistent product from versa bond requires a quality postal scale (to weigh the batch), a decent measuring container (usually from the paint section of the big box store, and a mixer attachment on my drill. Store the dry mix in a dry place as it'll suck humidity from the air.... from my days of working in a concrete lab, humidity contamination of bags of cement was murder on the results. Worst case, store the bag in a sealed home depot bucket.

If you pull the ratio, its like 0.11 qts (3.5oz) per pound of dry mix.
