Change grout color?

My wife chose white grout to go with white hexagonal tile, and now regrets the choice. Is there a way to "stain" the grout a different color?

To top it off, all has been sealed.

I believe the only proper way would be to remove the old grout and put down new grout the color you want. As has been discussed several times on the forum I would suggest you go to Fein Mutimaster arrow down and watch the grout removal demo.

Sorry....my suggestions would be scrape out the old and re-grout. But, I am getting ready to grout my white subway tile in the bathroom and if your wife had a second chance, what grout color would she have used? I was thinking bone?

Removing & regrouting is considered the only 'right' way. However, I recalled seeing that someone does make a dye for this. So I just did a search for "grout dye" and filled the screen! Check this out for yourself.
