Question Grout Joint Coloring

I recently did my 1st tile and grout cleaning. The results were really good with an unmistakable difference in color. What I didn't like was that the coloring of the grout was slightly inconsistent. I was doing some searching and came accross a product that I thought could realy make a difference. See the hyperlink below.

Has anyone ever used a product like this and what were your impressions? Also is there a difference between pre-colored sealer and clear sealer with the above linked dye added? The colored grout stain I've seen at the big box stores seems so thick compared to the clear penetrating sealer I used on my project. What do the pro's prefer, colored sealer or clear penetrating sealer with dye added?

Use toilet cleaner to clean grouts it really works trust me n try it
apply toilet cleaner directly on grouts leave it for 10 mins n clean it with brush & them wipe it off with a clean cloth
just wear gloves before cleaning just to avoid any risk.

Don't use toilet bowl cleaner on your grout!

Terrible advice. It may help get it clean, but it is acidic and will breake down your cementitious grout, causing it to soil faster and look terrible over the long term.

Most cementitious grout is going to have an inconsistent appearance to varying degrees of course. Color sealer is a great option for renewing tired, old grout, providing it is structurally sound. We use ColorClad color sealer and find it to be the most durable color sealer available.
