In general, grout is made from a mixture of water, sand, and cement going here. When the tile is installed, it is not uncommon to leave the remnants of grout attached to the surface of the tile. The grout has almost the same strength as cement, so if it is already dry it will be difficult to clean.

How to clean Nat tiles which proved successful
This paper is the result of our experience when cleaning grout stains that are already dry and sticking firmly on the surface of rough tiles with a texture of rocks. We have tried various tips on the Internet with suboptimal results. Among them with liquid cleaning porcelain and bathroom tiles, using baking soda, etc. even by using hard objects still the results are not satisfactory.
Finally, the method that has proven successful is to use HCL liquid which can be obtained at building material stores. The trick is as follows:
1. Using protective gloves (strong acid resistance), prepare HCL liquid and a cloth that should be discarded after use
2. Open the cover of the HCL container then fill the end of the cloth with a little liquid.
3. Rub the tip of a cloth that has been moistened to the surface of the ceramic affected by grout
4. Wait for the liquid to dry
5. Rub the surface of the tile with grout again with a dry cloth
6. The grout will fall out and the tile will be free of grout
