    My brother and I tiled my kitchen floor and did a great job if I say so meself. The tiles are grey speckled polished stone - of some kind. The thing is, they can stain easily if you spill tea or something along those lines and don't wipe it up immediately.

    Is there any kind of sealant I can put on them without spoiling the finish? Or will we just have to be a bit more vigilant.

    Any natural stone should be sealed, the sealer will depend on the type of stone and what look you are after - matt as natural stone or a more glossy look. Do a web search for Lithofin, thay do a sealer for most applications.

    I bought Lithofin MN stainstop for my marble tiles from this URL: http://www.extensive.co.uk/section.php/21/0 . It's crackin'.

    God knows why screwfix don't stock more in the way or professional standard tile adhesives/sealants.

    The "polish" only refers to how fine the surface was ground, honed would have used a coarser grit and left a matt finish.
