    Hi natural slate floor was sealed before the grout was done now it is all cleaned up it looks dusty like the grout is stuck at the edges and advice on removing the dusty look, wasn't sure if i should use terps or something.

    Try using a firm scrubbing brush with hot water. If that doesn't work, you'll need to use an acidic cleaning product and a scrubbing brush.

    Would have thought the Jeyes fluid might have discoloured the grout.
