Hi, my name is Chris Wade, and I'm a contractor for the city of Los Angeles, and today I'm going to show you how to remove grout film. Alright, we have finished grouting our ceramic tile and several hours has gone by but if you can notice that there's going to be like a white haze or just a white film because we're using the white grout here, what you want to do is just take your basic sponge, dip it in the water go over it until that film or that haze is removed. It's very quite simple, it's a little time consuming. It will look like you've got it all off and then you'll stand back and about 30 seconds later it's still there and you just go over it again until it's gone. It will take several times but it's just part of the process of doing your own ceramic tile. Again sponge, wrung out real good, clean it off until it's all gone. Again, just let it dry, hit it again, let it dry, hit it again and eventually that white film will be gone away and you'll have your beautiful tile. Just keep going and going until you get it all off and your tile will be what you want it. That's about it.
