What You Will Need

 
 

Instructions

Step 1: Ensure surface is clean. Using the scrubbing brush and dustpan, remove any debris from dried grout line. 

Step 2: Push the clear plastic lock on Selleys White For Life Grout Sealer trigger clockwise to the open position. Spray liberally onto grout, saturating the surface. Allow to penetrate grout for 1 hour.

Step 3: Wipe off overspray from face of tiles, using a clean white cloth or paper towel.

Step 4: Apply a second coat of sealer for maximum protection. Ensure that this overspray is wiped off within 2 hours of application to prevent sealer drying on the tile surface. 

Step 5: Allow to dry for at least 24 hours before exposing sealed grout to water on shower walls. 

Step 6: Re-seal grouted surfaces every 12 months for ongoing protection. 

 

Handy Tips

  • Always apply in small sections at a time.
  • Start from the top of the wall and finish with the base and floor.
  • Try to prevent spilling any liquids or getting any dirt or contaminants on the grout lines for a full 24 hours after sealing them.
  • Do no apply sealer below 10°C.
  • Always ensure that there are no puddles of sealer left in the grout lines. Too much sealer may cause discoloration of some grout types.
  • Look at the tiles from different angles to ensure that there is no sealer residue or sealer haze left on the tile surfaces.
  • If applying to existing grout, clean surfaces with Selleys White For Life Tile & Grout Cleaner. Clean mould affected surfaces thoroughly with Selleys Rapid Mould Killer and allow to dry, before applying sealer.
