Stone polish dried in grout

Q: I have a Limestone tile and someone let the polish dry in the grout. How can I remove the polish from the grout? The grout was not sealed. The product was granquartz stone polish.

A: Try applying a neutral cleaner to the grout where the polish has dried and agitating it with a soft bristle scrub brush. Remove the cleaner with a wet vac and repeat as needed. Once the polish is removed from the grout it would be a good idea to seal the grout to prevent staining and make clean up much easier in the future. You can find an excellent sealer and neutral cleaner at Stone Care Central.

I would also recommend that you download our Stone and Tile Care Guide for tips and advise on stone care.
