how to install grout to a mosaic tile backsplash like you would typically find in a kitchen or bathroom. I

I am using Mapei Ultracolor Plus FA with DropEffect™ technology is an ultra premium, fineaggregate, fast-setting, polymer-modified, color-consistent, nonshrinking, efflorescence-free grout for joint widths from 1/16" to 3/4" (1,5 to 19 mm). DropEffect reduces surface absorption to help repel water, dirt and grime from
penetrating grout joints. Ultracolor Plus FA is specially formulated with MAPEI’s High-Hydrated Cement Technology (HCT™) to eliminate the common problems related to Portland-cement grout, such as color consistency and efflorescence. Along with offering higher polymer content, HCT reduces absorption and
increases stain resistance when compared with standard-performance cement grouts.

This video shows you how to grout a backsplash! After installing the tile wall on your kitchen backsplash, you will wait at least 24 hours. To install grout you'll need plastic sheeting, masking tape, grout, 2 clean buckets, a grout float, sponges,. Protect your counter-top by taping down plastic sheeting.
1. Use only at temperatures between 50°F and 100°F
(10°C and 38°C). With temperatures above 85°F (29°C),
use cold water to mix the powder.

2. Using consistent application and cleaning procedures
will produce consistent results.

3. To aid in spreading the grout, slightly moisten the
tile or stone surface with a damp sponge just before
application. Do not flood the tiles or allow water to
stand in the ungrouted joint areas.

4. Force Ultracolor Plus FA into the joints with a rubber
grout float. Make sure all joints are well-compacted
and free of voids and gaps.

5. Remove excess grout from the tile surface, moving the
grout float diagonally to the joints while the Ultracolor
Plus FA is still fresh. Ultracolor ® Plus FA Ultracolor

6. The grout surface should be flush with the tile edge.

7. Some stiffening may occur before all material is used (usually within about 1 hour at room temperature). If this occurs, simply remix but do not add more liquid.

8. Provide for expansion and control joints as specified per TCNA
Handbook method EJ171 or TTMAC Specification Guide 09300,
Detail 301EJ.

9. Allow the Ultracolor Plus FA to firm up in the joints sufficiently to avoid damaging the grout surface – usually in 15 to 30 minutes, depending upon the temperature, humidity and absorption rate of the tile or stone.

Nonvitreous wall tile that absorbs water quickly requires less time for grout to firm up – only 5 to 10 minutes after installation.
10. Use two buckets of cleaning water: one for rinsing the majority of the grout residue from the grout sponge, and one for moistening the sponge in clean water.

11. Dip the sponge in a bucket of water and wring out the excess, so that the sponge does not drip water. Using very little pressure, pull the sponge diagonally across the grout joints to remove the excess grout from the tile surface. Also use the sponge to smooth the surface of the grout joint. Turn the sponge over and make another pass in an adjacent area.
After using both sides, rinse the sponge in one bucket and wring out the excess water. Dip the sponge in the second bucket of water, wringing out the excess and continue the process.

12. Change the water in the buckets frequently to help limit the amount of haze that forms on the tile or stone surface.

13. To prevent discoloration and soft/powdery joints, avoid cleaning with excessive water.

14. To control color variations, buff the grouted surface with cheesecloth or a clean, dry cotton cloth when a haze is visible on the tile surface, usually 30 to 60 minutes after grouting. This should remove any remaining surface water or grout residue.

15. Wash tools immediately with fresh water.
