Grouting reclaimed Victorian Quarry tiles

Asked by Rasheeda Dawson from Wolverhampton: We have just had laid some reclaimed victorian red quarry tiles. We have some already in the hall grouted in black. On applying the grout it has soaked into the tile. I think we needed to seal them first. However, can we salvage the 70+ tiles by removing the grout in any way? No amount of scrubbing make any difference because it is now in the tile.

TileProf says: All you can do at this point is try some Acid, such as Grout Clean Up http://www.tiledoctor.co.uk/AcidCleaner.html, folow the instructions on the back of the bottle, apart from the bit about pre-wetting, best on this occasion to try this product neat and scrub straight away, then rinse with water after cleaning, if that doesnt work then nothing will.
