Removing cement lumps from old fireplace hearth tiles??

Postby sarahholder » Wed Nov 07, 2007 5:04 pm

Hi, i've just removed an old 1950's ceramic tile monstrosity of a heavy??! Anyway underneath the base there is a tiled hearth, the victorian original, with small floral tiles, but they're covered in a thinnish but clumpy layer of cement?? Is there any product i can use to get rid of the cement without damaging the floor tiles? Or should I give up and accept they're not going to be able to be restored??

I'd appreciate any advice or thoughts?
