Removing excess mortar from brickface

I am new to this and recently built a small wall. I swept the brickface to remove excess mortar when i thought it was dry enough to do so however it left brush strokes of mortar covering the brickface. Is there any easy non-damaging way to clean this from the bricks? A wire brush and muriatic acid is what I've heard so far. Any help would be appreciated.
