Learned this trick on a mosaic supply website. If you are debating about grout color, try brushing in the dry grout powder between the tiles, take some time to assess, then vacuum up the powder before grouting.

I admit this will work better on a horizontal tiled sample board or tiles floor and not as well on the tiled wall. Will also not work if you are adding liquids to color your grout.

We doing a large renovation and have used a grout that has glass in it. It's beautiful when you use it with glass tile. We placed this in our new powder room.

For over 21 years I have had white tile and white grout without staining. Its all in the type of grout your installer uses. I only wipe with a damp cloth and voila its clean. Pick the best installer and grout!
