  • 2 Use a ready-mixed grout or mix up the tile grout following the instructions on the packet.
  • 3 Use a grout float to spread the grout mix over all the areas that need to be filled.
  • 4 When all gaps are full, go back over them with a sponge to even out the appearance of the grout. Also use the sponge to clean off any excess grout.
  • 5 Finally use a grout finishing tool to give a professional finish and leave grout to dry as indicated on the packet.
