You have to scrape it off. Your best tool would be a Dremel tool or one of the newer "multi-tool". The newer type (that oscillates) has a scraper tool that would work perfectly. I wish there was an easier way, but once grout dries, it's set.

Recently I did my own bathroom and found the old fashion bottle and can openers did the job the best. The pointy end really got the gout out. I sent you a page from eBay so you can see a picture of what I am talking about. Hope this helps. it worked for me. (02/20/2010)
