how do i remove old grout??

My client changed her mind about the grout colour she wanted - after I had grouted.
I now have to get sandstone grout completely out before regrouting in ivory.
I have tried gouging out but it is not sufficient and still shows through especially at the edges when regrouted in ivory. The sandstone is a darker colour.
I was thinking of a Dremel multi tool - or somethng similar- any recomendations or suggestions??

Hey Karl, I have done it with the little carbide tip tool ya use ta cut hardi or cbu. U can get`m @ home depot ,worked great !! still gota take yer time&control it so it dont chip an edge. If`n it were a BIG job I`d suggest usin a grout colorant? But thats me!
