How to Grout Your Tiles: A Guide
Choosing the right grout
Not every grout is suitable for every area. There are many differences between the individual products, so make a careful selection - and preferably seek advice from a professional.
While the color selection should be entirely based on your personal taste, other selection criteria relate to the properties of the tiled area. Is it a damp room or even a terrace? Do you want to grout a wall or a frequently used floor?

1. Clean tiles and joints
First, make sure the area is clean so that your grout won't get dirty and will really hold up. Scrape off all residues from the tile joints with a grout or knife and vacuum everything off with a vacuum cleaner.
Wipe away the last of the dust with a damp cloth and allow the surface to dry thoroughly so that a stable surface is created.
2. Mix the tile mortar
Now stir your mortar with the mixer of your drill and enough water until it takes on an evenly creamy consistency. Follow the instructions for use.
3. Slightly moisten the joints or apply a primer
Slightly moisten your tile grout before applying the mortar if the instructions for use require it. Some types of grout also require a primer, which you should apply according to the instructions.
4. Apply mortar
Now apply your mortar to a limited area of the grout. You can simply pour the material carefully into the joints or apply it with a spatula. Make sure that all the joints are well filled.
5. Peel off the grout
Use your rubber squeegee to pull all joints neatly diagonally at the same height. Distribute the material where there may still be holes in the joints, for example in edge areas.
6. Remove the mortar from the tiles
Let the grout set a little so that the surface appears dull. Then quickly remove the excess material from the tile surface with a wet sponge. Avoid touching the joints if possible.
You may need to wipe some areas several times until all of the tiles are clean again. A final cleaning with a rough cloth is recommended the next day.
