STEP 6: Grouting tiles __ Grout is usually purchased as a powder and mixed with water or a recommended additive. Read the instructions on the package or ask advice at the tile store. Wear gloves and spread grout evenly, being sure to force it into the joints with a blunt stick or another tool.
Mop the floor at least once a week with a ceramic tile cleaner, then rinse with clear water. Dry the tile with a towel immediately after mopping. Keep a squeegee in the bathroom for wiping down tub and shower walls after each use. Alternatively, wipe the moisture from the walls with a towel. Wiping down the walls prevents both hard water stains and soap scum buildup.
