Hi there micaela84,


Thanks for joining our community!~


Sorry to hear about the grout mishap, but it's a completely fixable job = ) I am a bit confused on your particular scenario, I'm having trouble following and envisioning exactly where this happened and to what degree. Would you be so kind as to supply a photo of the area so that we can can see just how much needs to be removed/replaced?


If we're just talking small, tiny dried pieces, then Cheese Cloth actually works great along with a bit of elbow grease. If there is a larger chunks then a fresh razor scraper can help pry them off as well and you can polish down the area with the cheese cloth afterwards.


Like I said though, I can't give you a truly solid answer until I can really see the area we're discussing, so please reply back with a bit more detail or some photos of the area please = )
