I've always advised against it with cement based grout

it can be used, after the grouting is mature.
a client of mine used it the night I made the grout.
the next morning they were ready for another grouting.

I've always said to avoid it for risk of damage to grout

Aren't they a problem with polished porcelain as they remove any sealer that is put on the tiles that seal off the pores that were opened up during the polishing process

I should hope they are OK, if not then the tiles must be sh$%^&
Is the grout that might pose the issue along with some stone
