If you look closely, you can see flecks of dirt left behind. Cleaning grout between hexagonal tiles is a challenge.

Sarah reached out to me a few days ago. Six months ago, she had a new master shower installed with a marble tile floor. The pieces of marble are small 1-inch hexagons. Sarah’s finding impossible to keep the grout clean.

Fortunately, she uploaded a high-resolution photo of the tile floor via my Ask Tim page That photo allowed me to zero in on what I believe is the source of the problem.
