Water based paint stripper and a PLASTIC scraper.

You may have some left in the grout so get that out and regrout.

No reason it shouldn't look like new.

Nitromorse is still the most usefull product I have ever used on all these paint or Varnish removal jobs. Makes and old dead paintbrush like new again, The tiles will be unaffected by the stuff but read the instructions
