just make sure you get all the excess off your tiles before it dries. We didn't on some of our tiles and it looks like a dried water mark when you look at the tile from a certain angle in the right light. No one else can probably see the spots but I know where they are and it really bugs me. We were told the only way to remove the marks was for a professional to "lightly, very lightly, sand" the tile. Ours are smooth procelain tiles. Also my husband tried the little wheel but preferred using a fine bristle paint brush instead. Very time consuming - our hallway and kitchen area was 30' long and 5' & 12' wide.
