Ceramic Bathroom Wall Tiles

Hi, can anyone help me please.

We are in the middle of updating our bathroom and I need some advice on removing grout.

We have removed the tiles from the wall around the bath (plasterboard wall) and most of the tiles have come off without any problem, however, some have come off but left lots of grout still on the wall. We have tried to remove some of the grout but unfortunately this has taken a bit of the plaster underneath?

Can anyone give me any advice on how to remove the rest of the grout without damaging the plasterboard?

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Yours desperately...!

Karen

Is this in a tub/shower area or outside the surround? Is this an area you wish to retile?

What exactly is Plasterboard. It has been mentioned a lot, and I am not sure what this is. Is it the European equivalent of sheetrock here in the U.S. Is it made special for wet areas. Does it have paper on it.

"unfortunately this has taken a bit of the plaster underneath?"
