As you’ve probably guessed, every step is essential when you’re remodeling your house. Take proper care of your grout, and your home will look as good as new even after 20 years! If you don’t mix the grout well, the mixture will get too crumbly or too mushy, and it’s true for letting your grout dry too! If you don’t let it long enough, it’ll crack and break your tiles.
