What is the best way to remove small areas of thinset that has dried in between the tiles in the grouting area before I grout? Btw, I do have a dremel if that is good.

I attached a pic of the stones I will be using for the floor. What notch size trowel should I use to lay it? Do I leave the grooves or flatten before I put the stones on the thinset?
