Grout is down and drying

Got everything together last night and moved a few things around.  This morning about 9am I started mixing about 3/4’s of the 25 pound bag of grout.  Let it sit for a bit and then started grouting the tile in the bathroom.  It actually went pretty fast.  Messy and it takes longer to clean the tile up and it does to mix wait for the grout to setup and then apply the grout.  I have gone over the tile 3 times now with a sponge.  Tiles are looking pretty clean.  I will go over the tile one more time today and hopefully that will get the tile and grout lines close to perfect.  I will then over the next 2 or 3 days go over the tile once a day with the spong just to make sure all residue is gone.  Each day I plan to also spray the grout with water.  The directions say to do that for the first 48 to 72 hours.  After that I will seal the grout and the seal the tile and grout at the same time.  By the end of next week I will be able to put the shoe molding down and the floor in the bathroom will be finished.
