About GROUT.

My recent vestibule floor tiling escapades have taken yet another turn for the worse. But it's okay cuz PICKLE Weasel came to cheer me up.

Lady at the specialty tile shop: "Non, Madame Little. Do not seal ze tiles beforrre ze grouting. You must seal zem afterrr applying ze grout."

Moi: "Are you sure? The grout is black; I'm worried the grout will stain them!"

Lady: "Don't worrry Madame Little. Ze tiles will not stain. Follow ze Installation Guide" (points to a piece of paper). "Zeese tiles are verrrry sp├ęcial. You must follow ze guide. Now if you don't mind, I will feeneesh my lunch brrreak."

Moi: "Okay."

I followed the Installation Guide to ze letterrr, dammit. I got half way through the grouting and stopped. My tiles are so stained.

PICKLE Weasel to the rescue!
