Grout haze is nothing more than a thin layer of grout remaining after the grouting. Sealer haze is the sealer that coats the grout. Grout haze will dry to a powdery film, while sealer is more like.
Question: Removing Grout from Tile
Our sons tiled our house a couple of months ago and we are still trying to get the extra grout off the tile where they didn't finish cleaning it. Any ideas how to get it off? We have scrubbed and soaked, bit it is still there. Help please.

Epoxy Grout Film Remover
As a plumber I do lots of tiling. You have work ahead of you because time was not taken when it needed to be. OK there are grout removers available at hardware stores. If you use the above suggestion be careful if you have high gloss tiles you will scratch them and look at those scratches forever. If you apply pressure be careful not to crack your tiles.
I would call a specialist a tile supplier, an importer. They always have high end tile setters that they may recommend (or that purchase from them). I think the grout remover solution is a good idea, but be careful not to wreck your sealant (which would have your newly renovated bath at risk for leaks).
I see another sight recommends a Dremel only do this for complete removal. Remember your tile is new if its over 48 hours its already set, so take your time and take expert advice.
My husband is a builder so I have cleaned my share of grout off tiles. If it is only the filmy substance left on top of the tiles, use a solution of white vinegar and water with a Scotch Brite pad. If the grout is heavier, use very, very light fine grade wet sandpaper. Go slow and good luck. This is a tough job. My fingernails can attest to that.

You waited too long after grouting to remove the grout haze. Now it needs to be acid washed. While this sounds scary and damaging, it will just remove the grout from the tile and not damage the grout lines -- if done properly. Contact your local floor covering store or possibly Lowe's or Home Depot and they can sell you the muradic acid and give you directions. If you don't feel comfortable doing it yourself, just ask them to recommend a good installer to finish this up for you. I've been in floor covering for 16 years.
