How can I remove mortar from wood window trim?

Answered

We recently purchased a home. One wall is all brick with a fireplace and a window on either side. Apparently, when the windows were replaced, some brick was inadvertently loosened. While repairing the brick, some mortar was left on the wood window frame. How can I remove this mortar without having to refinish the wood?

    You can try to scrape it off or scrub it off with cream cleaner, but Cement mortar has lime in the mix and will take the shine off any surface it has been on.
