Unhappy Concrete Removal - URGENT HELP

I have a flagstone patio that i just laid. I noticed that a bunch of stones have dried mortar on them. What can I use, other than a hammer and chisel, to remove the concrete completely off the flagstones without damaging them? Any product?

Thanks

A month old is not recent. Did you go on vacation for a month or what?

Sadly, there is no easy answer or magic bullet like there would be if you had done it within a day or 2. Mechanical removal is your only option, with an acidic cleaner to remove any slight haze left behind. If you attempt an acidic cleaner as it is, you will likely ruin the patio.

Sorry, but it is what it is.

Search for speedy-clean and give them a call. I have no idea if it will work for you, but it is an alternative.
