I live in Florida. During one of the hurricanes, some decorative 7 foot old chicago brick pillars fell and broke into various levels (2 bricks high, 4 bricks high, etc.) Each level has 4 bricks around the outside with a space in the middle - sometimes filled with brick pieces or excess mortar. I want to use these bricks and rebuild the pillars by somehow cleaning off the mortar where it broke, lifting the sections back into place, and re-mortaring where the breaks were. Is it possible? How would you suggest that I clean off the areas...they are too big to put into buckets of acid water.
