Our dining room has salts breaking up the facing plaster. I've hacked
off a test area of the plaster and found that the first 1m of wall
underneath has a very hard sand/cement plaster underneath. This is
Above it I can remove the plaster easily and get back to the stone/
rubble walls. Is there any prospect of me being able to get the sand/
cement plaster off (have tried a cold chisel and lump hammer so far).
The original plan was to remove the plaster and use a traditional lime-
based plaster with good salt-holding properties.
