I use a piece of plastic saran wrap and push it down against the surface of the grout and then put the lid on with the excess plastic wrap sticking out under the lid. This eliminates any contact with air at the surface of the grout and you don't need to push the lid on tight. This works for any material that will dry out such as wall patch.

Yes you can! Make sure after each use that you reseal the bucket and you'll be fine. Good luck!

Thanks, Chris, for the response. I have to repair most of the floor, so I'm planning on working on small areas at a time. Once I open a bucket of grout, do I have to use it all at once, or can I just do a small area, then seal the bucket and come back to it at another time?

The grout will bond to itself so if you need to touch up some areas you won't have any problems. I wouldn't sand the grout but if the grout is higher than the tile carefully cut it out with a utility knife and fill in the areas with new grout. If there's grout or grout residue on the tile use Krud Kutter(available at most home centers)to clean. Grout repairs are no fun! If you take your time and work in small areas at a time you should be fine. Hope this helps. Let me know how it goes.

Uneven grout

I had a contractor install my grout. Unfortunately he didn't read the instructions and the grout was too low in many places, causing my bare feet to hurt when walking across the tiles. He came back to add more grout, and made a bigger mess of things. Now there is uneven grout all over the place. Can the grout be sanded, or is there anything I can do to even it out?
