How to remove grout with a multi-tool
- Attach and position
When you’re ready to start using your multi-tool, attach the SMART Carbide Segment blade to your multi-tool.
- Begin the grout removal
Once your multi-tool is ready, begin to work the blade straight into the seam between the two tiles with a straight cut. When most of the grout is removed, begin to slowly angle the blade up and down to remove all areas of grout from the seam. Be careful to work slowly to ensure damage the edge of the tiles is prevented.
Top tip: The best way to remove grout from tiles is to apply gentle pressure. Let your blade do most of the work to maximise blade performance.
