    Unhappy removal of epoxy grout

    I have used epoxy grouts in my house with no problems Until now. I did my bathroom and it looks horrible. I have to remove the epoxy grout but no one can tell me what to use and how. I am hoping someone can guide me through this goof up. HELPPPPPPPPP

    i've installed it many times and made a mistake the first time i did it. i had to remove two tiles and the grout around them. it was a nightmare and it took me about 3-4 hours to get the grout off of the adjoining tiles. i asked the guy at the tile place and he didn't know what to do. i sucked it up and just did it. only person i can think of to ask is the manufacturer (didn't think of that until i was done). if you call them, please let us know what they say.

    good luck

    I've removed grout before using a grinder with a diamond blade, but if you don't have patience and a steady hand, you will damage the neighboring tiles.

    A fein multi tool or dremmel may reduce the chance of chipping

    I have done some reading on it and if you use a mechanical way of removing the epoxy grout it will stink up the place.

    Depending on the brand, you might try a heat gun set on low or the grease cutting agent used in commercial kitchens. Contact the manufacturer for the specific answer.
