|Concrete-based grouts||Cement-based grout – most commonly used for joints grouting – is soluble in cold water. The classical grout cleansing operation involves tapping the tile with a sponge, to be rinsed repeatedly in water.|
|Absorbtion and quality||When considering even-quality raw materials, the difference between a beige sponge (sometimes called “havana” or “tiler” sponge) and a high-absorption sponge (or “sweepex” or “white” sponge) is in its hydrophilia, that is, the water absorption capacity by the material of which the sponge is made up. The higher the absorbtion index, the easier and quicker the sponge’s rinsing operation.|
|Other applications||Sponge floats are also used for plaster drawing. Be carefult though: high-absorbtion sponges are not to be used for this application, as their higher hydrophilia would result into incorporating too much material. Use a beige sponge instead!|
