    Any ideas how to best get dried mortar off a bluestone patio? Guys got a little sloppy. Not too much, mainly around the joints.

    Help would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance!

    call your local concrete supplier, they should know, or better yet, a brick/paver supplier. i have done brick and mortar before, i just never had to clean it. :D
