This grout paint looks great and refreshes the look of the tiles in our bathroom, but the general instructions do not help much when applying it to small tiles with thin grout lines. I used this on 4-inch matte ceramic bathroom tiles and it took a long time to figure it out. The bottle warns not to get paint on the tile, but with thin grout lines, the paint will always get on the tile, and when you wipe it off, it wipes the paint out of the grout line too. So, after much trial and error, what I learned is this: Apply with as thin a brush as possible. I tried different brushes and toothbrushes and ended up favoring a thin paintbrush over a toothbrush. Don't worry if you get some paint on the tiles. If you try to wipe it off right away, you will take the paint off of the grout and have to keep reapplying it and the job will take FOREVER (it takes longer to take the paint off of the tiles than to paint the grout lines). After the paint has set awhile, maybe 20 minutes, you can carefully wipe the paint off of tiles with a towel dipped in vinegar & water mix. If you miss some spots on the tile, and the paint dries completely, don't worry. Alcohol on cotton or paper towel will remove it all, even days later. Alternatively, you could paint all of the grout lines without worrying about taking the paint off the tiles, let it all dry, and then come back the next day with the alcohol and take the excess paint off of all the tiles.
