Muriatic acid diluted with a littlewater and a soft bristly brush will remove the soot. Make sure you cover the area around it with plastic. Brush gently and wipe with a clean sponge. Wear a mask when doing this chore. The fumes are toxic. (10/10/2005)

Trisodium Phospate or tsp can be bought at most hardware stores. I use it mixed with water and a stiff brush.. About 1/2 cup to a pail. AND USE RUBBER GLOVES. Rinse after. Should clean up easily (10/11/2005)
