The grout has a lot of sand, it can be dusty. Wear your mask.
Mix the grout with cold water. Add a bit at a time. Stir 5 minutes.

Use pressure and smear the grout in circles to work in to all gaps.
Lift to fill the edges with grout.

As the grout dries it will begin to get a chalky appearance.

Wait until this stage to polish clean.
Use a dry towel to polish the grout from the surfaces of the tiles.
