We just plastered (structolite) our house. There has got to be an easy (and non-toxic or at least non-noxious - yes I have kids around) way to remove the plaster without hours of scrubbing. HELP!

Dear Jules,
First, I need to know what kind of tiles you have. If they are ceramic, simply purchase a good razor scraper and remove the plaster. Ceramic will not be hurt by this method. If they are porus outside tiles, scrape the bulk of the plaster off and use a solution of muriatic acid to finish cleaning them. CAUTION!!! Consult with someone that knows this subject and be sure to wear the appropiate safety gear. I've used this acid for years with good results and it usually not stain slate or blocktiles. However, as in all cases, read the directions and contact the manufactuer to learn of the effects of the product on your particular tile.
Get back to me, Len
