I would like to know the best product or method to clean soot from bricks, which are around an internal fire place.
Thanks for any help,

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)

One day I noticed a lady scrubbing the bricks on her porch. they were a light yellow. they were beautiful when she was done. She said she used ajax or comet type cleanser on them. Good luck (10/11/2005)
