Dying Time for Grout

It appears that Custom might have changed their formula a tad to alleviate the white haze ????
The bags have a different color and was told at the Orange Bow that they changed something ?
Question: what is the soonest that I can seal the grout ?
We finished Friday afternoon -- is 48 hrs enough ?
PS: I do not have the white haze/discoloration this time -- maybe we were lucky ? We tiled about 6 times the footage as we did last time. Since we did not like the Camel pink tint we changed to Summer Wheat with a Ubatuba floor tile mosaic/broken pieces as a border between kitchen and living area and hallway. Turned out nice.

A light haze can be wiped off about an hour after washing with a cotton rag or cheese cloth.

I have sealed grout many times within 48 hrs, mostly when the climate is dry and not rainy.

Hi Randy,

I've been using Custom grouts for years. As far as I know, the only thing that changed was the color of the sack. They redid all their packaging, thin sets and all. We know they didn't reformulate everything.
