Removal of Ceramic Wall Tiles - Grout.

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

It would probably help to know what you intend to put on the wall after you remove the thinset [not grout] I think. Are you putting up a surround,retiling? Is the wall blue[plasterboard] or green[water resistent drywall] or other?. Are you prepared to remove the whole wall if it is green or is removing the wall not an option right now? Do you have any tools like grinders or sanders available?
