flagstone patio

between the flagstone the sand/pebble filling always comes up onto the flagstone, especially after a rainstorm. and now the grey flagstone not only has sand and pebbles on it, but the surface of the flagstone looks like a film of sand dust and now the patio flagstone doesn't show up, it kind of blends in with the mixture between each stone......what can i do to remedy this, i am so sick and tired of constantly sweeping the pebbles and washing off the sand coating the flatstone

when i filled in between the flagstone, because i thought it was too low, i actually overfilled it with the sand mixture left by the contractor....so it took my and my husband 3 hours to dig out all the extra sand and lightly mist the hose over the deck, we misted it for 3 days and the color of the stone came back and it looks great, we just cannot have the sand level with the flagstone

first, does ALL the stone/sand have to be removed from between each stone......yes, i heard about the Poly sand, but I also heard it can stain the flagstone if it gets on it. i don;t want the wet look because it could be slippery...
so back to the main question, does ALL the stone/sand need to be removed before the Poly sand it used, or can the Poly sand be used on top of existing stone/sand.

Clean your joints real good. Then use Polymeric Sand. Sweep in the joints, then wet..It hardens like concrete. Then call me for the Durasheen sealer..Wet look you will get. Colors come out and bites you..Really nice product.
