5. Drizzle the Epoxy Cleaner into the cleaned out grout slot and leave until just damp

6. Now drizzle the Ultra Thin Epoxy Resin or Epoxy Primer/Consolidator into the damp grout slot and top up as necessary to a final level that leaves sufficient depth for re-grouting

7. Gently tap the tile to ensure that resin has penetrated - it should no longer sound hollow

8. Once the resin has hardened re-grout the tile
