New grout crumbling

Kristen M
last month

We just put down new tile in our bathroom. We followed directions for the mortar and the grout. Within 24 hours, the new group grout was already crumbling. We hadn’t walked on it or anything. Having done all this work, I don’t want it to be already falling apart, however I’m not sure I feel like dealing with scraping all the grout out and redoing it again. Is it possible to just add new grout over the top and have that be okay? Or maybe just scrape out some of the grout and add new grout in? I don’t want to damage the new tile in the process, so in addition to not really wanting to take the time, I also don’t want to try to fix one problem but end up chipping tile or something and having a whole new problem. What should I do?
