Hello, everyone. I'm Joshua Clement, and this is how to change the color of your non-sanded grout after it's been installed. Now this job isn't very hard but it is time consuming so when you set out to do it, make sure you set aside quite a bit of time to finish this project. For this job I'm going to be using some grout colorant and a regular watercolor paintbrush. So the first thing you want to do is make sure that our grout lines are clean of all dust and debris. After that, we're going to take our bottle and go ahead and squeeze a little bit right on top of the grout lines. We don't want to go the full length of the grout, we actually want to use this more as a dipping point to get our brush in and just go through. We're just going to pain the grout lines. It's okay if you get some off of the grout and onto the tile. We're going to take care of that just a little bit later. We'll just work it down in through here. You want to make sure that it soaks in. This will also seal your grout. So this will help keep all the water and dust from staining your grout. Just work it on through here. Now you're going to wait until the colorant dries on your tiles. After you have let it dry, take your rag and wipe along the edges of the grout where the tile is. The tile has protective coating on it that won't let this sealant set up on top of it so we'll go through, begin to wipe off the excess. Recoloring your grout is a great way to hide all those stains on your old grout. Thank you all for watching and good luck with this project.
