Grout Question

Posted by mzclassic (My Page) on

Is it okay to mix sanded and unsanded grout together? I'm running short and want to finish a project. Any help would be appreciated.

I don't see why not, just understand that the unsanded has more shrinkage and thats why its really only for very thin grout lines. So that may give you trouble but I think mixing would help

RE: Grout Question

My B-I-L does tile work and he suggested not to use sanded grout with glass that it might scratch the glass. Has anyone tried it?

RE: Grout Question

I've not had any problem with glass and sanded grout.

RE: Grout Question

I have heard it used mixed but never tried it. I'd just keep grout lines on the smaller size.
(I use sanded for all my glass projects w/o problems)
