Guide for Quarry Tile Grout
Quarry tile grout, for quarry tiles, comes in ready-mixed and powder form. Some prefer to use the powder and it is easily mixed, in a bucket, in quantities that you can easily work with. Apply a liberal amount of grout to the tiles, and then spread it, pushing into the gaps in a regimental way.

Patio

Make sure each tile gap is filled as it will sink late if not. A grout trowel may be used for this process but in tight corners I would recommend the use of a sponge.

When an area has been covered of approximately 3m x 3m, wipe off all excess grout with the sponge. Rinse out the sponge well in a separate bucket full of water. You may be required to repeat this process several times to remove all the excess grout from the surface of the tiles.

Tile grout can dry quite quickly, and you will probably find a very thin dust residue on the surface of your tiles. This can be polished off easily with a dry cloth.
