Description

This ultra-thin blade is especially good for removing grout when you don’t want to damage the tile. That can be an issue with many grout removal tools, especially when working in tight spaces. Use the attachment to remove grout on countertops, walls, or floors–wherever you need grout gone, the attachment will remove it right up to the wall or corner, meaning no sloppy edges you’ll need to remove by hand.

Many DIYers and crafts-enthusiasts already have a Dremel Multi-Max, which is a small oscillating power tool designed to hold a wide variety of different types of attachments for cutting, grinding, sanding, and various other workshop needs. One such attachment is the Dremel MM500 1/8-Inch Grout Blade. While it's designed for the Multi-Max, it actually can also be used with many other brands of oscillating tools, including Bosch, Milwaukee, Ryobi, Craftsman, Skil, and Ridgid.

The two most common designs are a jagged-edged blade attached to a handle—we recommend the M-D Building Products Grout Saw for this design—or a screwdriver-shaped device with a triangular or pointed tip, such as the QEP Grout Removal Tool. Whatever you choose, be prepared for a workout, as manual grout removal is a tedious, dusty, and slow job. Still, these tools are typically quite inexpensive, and if you only need to remove a small area of unsanded grout, this may well be all you need to get the job done. There are a variety of manual tools designed to chip, scrape, or saw through grout. “A grout saw is a hand instrument that has a narrow, toothed blade that is designed to fit inside grout lines. It is best suited for small to medium-sized regions and precision work. Other types of manual grout scrapers are available in a variety of forms and sizes, but these hand tools are best suited only for tiny areas or touch-up work," according to Matthew DiBara, CEO of DiBara Masonry. The metal hook is seated in a plastic handle that is shaped to fit nicely into your grip, and there's a little bit of cushioning to help ward off fatigue and hand pain. A hole at the handle's base lets you slip the tool over a hanging hook when you're finished. You could also use the tool to scrape out old caulk around a bathtub, toilet, or sink. While this isn't the tool for a big grout job, it's adequate for those small repair projects that crop up occasionally, and it's certainly reasonably priced. The double steel blades include one with deep serrations and one with carbide bits for extra effectiveness. Use both blades in tandem for most projects, but if working with very thin grout lines, you can remove the serrated blade to thin the tool down. The Coitak Angled Grout Saw is 5.3 inches along the straight part of the handle, with an additional 3.75 inches of angled handle, so even large hands should easily be able to hold it comfortably. It has a hanging hole at the base of the handle, so you can hang it on a hook in your workshop, where it will be easy to find the next time you need it.

The attachment includes two blades: one 1/16-inch blade and one 3/16-inch blade. Both are made from carbon steel with a carbide grit edge for maximum ability to chew through even tough epoxy or urethane grout. Use the tool carefully, though, as otherwise, you might scratch nearby tiles. Deane Biermeier, a licensed contractor and contractor as well as member of The Spruce's Home Improvement Review Board.The sawing motion of the blade makes it a little easier to use than an oscillating tool when removing grout from tiles that aren’t rectangular or square. Plus, as a general rule, reciprocating blades produce much less dust than most other types of grout-removing tools, although, of course, you should still wear eye protection and a dust mask when using the saw. Although admittedly your arms and hands are going to get a workout, the QEP Grout Removal Tool’s rubber grip, with its comfortable, ergonomic design, helps to reduce hand fatigue as much as possible. But it’s the business end of the tool that gets the job done quite effectively. This isn’t the right choice for large projects, but if you just want to scrape away the grout from between a few broken tiles slated for replacement or remove chipped grout from a small counter or wall before regrouting the space, the M-D Building Products Heavy-Duty Grout Saw gets the job done, albeit with some effort on your part. There are a wide variety of tools used to remove grout. The right one for you depends on the size of your job, the amount of time and energy you want to spend, and whether or not you already have suitable power tools on hand. The type of grout is also important; any of the following tools can handle regular unsanded grout, but sanded or epoxy-based grouts are much harder and require equally strong removal tools. While this isn’t the tool for major projects, such as removing all the grout from a large counter in preparation for laying new tile, it’s perfect when you just want to scrape away some old grout around a few tiles, or even remove all the grout on a small counter. You could also use it to scrape and lift away old caulk around tubs, sinks, or toilets.

Whatever the reason you need to remove grout, it's a time-intensive, dusty, and admittedly tedious job. But with the right grout removal tool, the process is well within the capabilities of the typical DIYer. There are quite a few different types of tools designed to remove grout, some powered by electricity and some by your own muscle exertion. Deane Biermeier, a general contractor and lead carpenter, as well as a member of The Spruce's Home Improvement Review Board, recommends, "Power tools for grout removal, such as reciprocating saws or oscillating tools with grout blades, are great for removing the bulk of the grout. To remove grout from small tiles or tiles in close quarters, use a manual grout removal tool. The extra time removing grout will be less time than it takes to replace damaged tiles." Depending on your proficiency with various tools, one method may be easier than another, but typically one of the easiest ways is to use a reciprocating saw equipped with a grout rake. Grinders and electric grout removal tools are also highly effective, but reciprocating saws are commonly used in DIYer workshops, so it's likely that the average DIYer would be more familiar with a reciprocating saw than a grinder or electric grout removal tool.
