Shovel cleaning

Made the mistake of lending my shovel to a friend, used it but left it for a
few days with out washing the mortar off. What's the best way to clean
hardened cement mortar of the shovel,

Hammer and flat surface to hammer against. Most of it will break away then. Old chisel/screwdriver or WHY to get remainder off.

================================== Shovel a pile of gravel or broken hardcore as if mixing mortar. Half an hour of this shovelling will get the shovel clean and get you fit for your next job.

Get your 'friend' to clean it in whatever way he feels fit. Or to save lending it to him again he could always keep it and buy you a new one! ;)

Hit him round the head with it
or just whack it flat on the ground - should bring most of it off

Hydrochloric / muriatic / brick acid
if it's not too bad, and you've already got some, sulphamic acid toilet de-limescaler will also do it, but a bit more slowly.

no, really, just whack the thing on a hard surface until the mortar comes off
