Default Need fast drying grout for bathroom tiles in shower/tub area

I have to replace some dirty and moldy grout between the tiles above the
bathtub. But the grout I saw sold at the hardware store said that it
has to stay dry for 36 hours. That would be impossible, unless I moved
to a hotel for two days. I take two showers a day, and that's the only
bathroom I have in my home.

Can you recommend some really fast-drying or quick-drying grout
compound? It would just be for this small repair--maybe two square feet
of tile that needs to be regrouted.

1. Take bath instead of shower.
2. Cover grout with a spare shower curtain.

Just tape plastic over the area.

Yer jokin', right? If you can't live without a shower for 36 hrs, you
should just shoot yourself now.

I can't believe you're prescribing medical advice. Are you a doctor?
If someone didn't take a shower for 36 hours they'd die. It's a well
known fact. If the OP goes just 24 hours without a shower he could be
maimed for life...or a bit grungy, but either way it's very bad.

I'd buy a back-up house and sell it after the grout dried.

You may have a health problem or an obsession that needs professional
help. Make an appointment soon.

If you had ever had military service you would have learned that
skipping a shower or two is not at all life threatening. Just suck it
up, exude all the pheromones you can and grout the necessary seams.
Its the manly thing to do.
