Well an Orick orbiter work?
I imagine it will but I have never used one to know much about them. I see I lot of members talking about Oreck so they may be able to answer better, one thing I do recommend is picking up a 175 in the future as they have so many uses.

I would guess that a neutral cleaner will not be able to get that off. Definately not with an oreck, too light. If using oreck then probably need a stripper to get it off. In future, use a higher quality sealer to prevent that problem. Impregnating sealer

The issue with using a stripper is that it can also remove and break down the sealer on the grout causing you to need to reseal. Since ceramic is non porous the sealer has not penetrated into it and can be removed with a cleaner and agitation.
