Using Jewson's ready mix mortar with plastcizer for pointing old sandstone
shed and colour of mortar is a light brownish. That's ok but lady up the
road is wanting to point her cottage but her pointing is a white colour. Is
there anything that we can add to make this stuff whiter or is there an
alternative product. We are in a remote spot and don't have access to many

Her cottage may be lime mortar, in which case you mustn't repoint
with ordinary cement based mortar. Lime mortar sets to form chalk,
which is why it's often (but not always) white. This should be
looked at by someone with experience of lime building before
anyone starts repointing it. Any idea how old the cottage is?
