Grouted along tub by mistake

I made the mistake of not completely reading the instructions when applying the grout and filled in the gap along the tub. Any suggestions as to how I remove it without ruining a near-perfect job?

If the bathroom isn't too big, and all the other perimeter spaces are clear I'm sure you will be fine. The flexible grout isn't quite flexible enough to provide a water tight seal at the tub so you will want to apply a bead of caulk at the tub.
If you do decide to remove the grout a utility knife works well if the grout is still fresh.

If the grout is not still fresh, you can spray the area of grout you want to remove with Krud Kutter, let it soak in for 5 min then it will cut out much easier. Be sure to apply the Krud Kutter generously, but try to keep it only in the area you want to remove.
