How to Remove Grout Haze from Marble

Tiling with marble looks fantastic, but there are a few little tricks you need to know. Namely, seal that stuff once you've got it up on the walls PRIOR to grouting. If you don't seal, the grout will discolor your marble and you'll be angry. sealer

Tip #2: don't try to use a normal grout haze remover product. It will scratch the ISH out of your marble and you'll be sad.


But how to address the grout haze? Ahhh haze. Anytime you tile and grout, a mysterious grout-y haze will be left behind. It looks basically like this:
