Topic tags/keywords: bathroom grout removal dremel multimax

I bought a Dremel multimax tool to remove grout in my bathrooms. The grout removal attachment comes in 1/16” and 1/8” sizes. The grout lines in my bathrooms look pretty standard to me. Does anyone have a recommendation on which size to use. At $25 a per blade plus shipping on amazon, I want to order the right size. By the way, my Lowes only sells the 1/16” size, but at $37, ouch. Maybe there’s not much call for the 1/8”. Please let me know. Thanks.

What I would do is take a screw driver or something simular and chip up the grout in a small area. THen you can measure the gap between your tiles and that should give you a good idea or what size blade you need.

There is a tool that you can buy and any home store for under $10.00. run it over the grout line and the loose grout will come out. If it don’t come out leave it, all you need to do is score the line. If the grout line is under 3/32” use un-sanded grout if more use sanded.

I know this is late haha and I’m sure you have figured it out by now which size to use. But, this is a wonderful recommendation! I bought this type of tool at Home Depot and it really made determining which type of grout to use much easier.

I have recurring grout problem in my storage shed and it is always a dilemma to order the correct attachment size. It is always better to manually measure the grout space than to just do a rough estimation.
