Does anyone have a remedy to remove old paint spots from the outside brick on the house without ruining the brick finish? Thanks.

Do the opposite. Go get paint samples the color of your brick and dab it over the brick to blend in and cover the unwanted paint.

How can you get paint off of brick?
My mother-in-law's BF just did this to his home. I'm not sure if that is what you are referring to or not. Scrap as much as you can loose and then use a power washer and blast it good. It just falls away. (09/01/2006)
I tried the pressure washer on some brick posts and it didn't work. I used a gel paint remover/stripper, it gums it up a bit and it's a lot of scraping, but it came off. (09/04/2006)
