FYI
I was sold Grout Boost from a salesman at a local big box. A broken waterline in the 2nd story had pretty much wiped out our house. Kitchen cabinets out, sheetrock out etc. We decided to tile the majority of the house. New shower, new floors, new vanity tops, new counter tops etc. I bought $400 of grout boost and gave it to my pro tile setter. He said it was not as easy to apply as normal grout but better than epoxy. It looked great and we were happy. Nothing touched it for two weeks.

It is now 3 months later. As far as I can tell I wasted 400 dollars. Kitchen counter tops take stains like nothing is there. Coffee, grease etc. Today I bought grout sealer and will try to clean and mitigate my stupidity!

I think it is just for color consistancy, thats it.
Read the directions. It's not a sealer that is added to the grout. You're right you did throw your money away. Always read directions
