Best Answer

Get a double tungsten grout remover at the hardware tool section and start carefully scraping out the old grout. The mortar can be weakened and removed by putting muriatic or hydrochloric acid on it let it stand for a while, then brushing it with a stiff brush. this process may have to be repeated several times. NOTE be care full when using acid that you wear rubber gloves and eye protection and also keep in mind that the vapor from straight acid should not be inhaled as it will eat holes in your lungs.
