    I am sitting at my laptop eating breakfast with my SparkPeople. Soon I will get dressed and go to Home Depot for some grout remover. I set a buncha tiles in my kithen last week and I made a buncha mistakes. The first mistake I made was to make the grout too dense, so it was impossible to wiipe it off with a wet spong. Little spots of grount hardened on the tiles. I got most of it off by wetting the tiles with Aetone andd meticulously scraping up the hardened grout with a chisel.

    Then, thinking myself experienced, I mixed more grout, this time the right consistency and I slathered it on more tiles. That's when I made my second mistake. I thought I could play around with the 10-20 minute perioed called for to harden the grout enough to sponge over it

    I went into creative mode and slathered on grout over an area and let it harden while I was curing the net mixture. The results was that the grout had 30 or more minutes to harden. By the time I got to sponging it down it had hardened to much so now I have two more sections of tiles that are covered in the cement-like grout.

    Research tells me that all I can do is use water to sofen the grout and go over the tiles one by one (there are thousands of them) with a plastic scraper. Not me! I'm not gonna do it!

    So, off I go to Home Depot to buy a new grout dissolver and soon I will be lying on my sink under my kitchen cupboards working away at my tile.

    I don't get activity points for lying on my side scraping off grout but I get a tremendous feeling of achieving a healthier life style than when was laying around playing around on the compter. emoticon
