INSTRUCTIONS FOR STAINLESS STEEL GROUT HEADS

The Stainless Steel Grout Head must be formed to fit in the appropriate grout line that you are cleaning. While most tile will not be affected, some tiles will scratch if you are using an oversized brush or cleaning head.

Grasp the head in one hand, with the other hand you will want to use a pair of needle nose pliers, grab the steel at the base where the steel is attached to the head. Use a circular twisting motion to pull the steel away from the plastic base. Do not pull straight up, it will not release.

We can also suggest small wire clippers if you have a problem removing them. for larger grout lines, you should leave 2 plugs at 12:00 and 2 plugs at 6:00. for small lines i.e. bathroom tiles, use one plug at the top and one at the bottom.
