How long do you have to wait to grout after sealing tile?
Usually directions tell us to grout within 16-24 hours when using sealer as a grout release. I would grout 2-10 hours after applying the sealer to be safe. After grouting, do the final cleanup either the next day or a few day later to allow the grout to cure.
