When we had a house fire the cleaning pros came in & used the coolest thing! They used a dry-cleaning "Soot Sponge" Here's more info:

To get down into the groves, Use "Scrubbing Bubbles" bathroom cleaner and a toothbrush. Spray the scrubbing bubbles on (or a $1 store knock-off) then leave it sit for a minute or 2 then wipe the grime off with an old towel. After you have most of it off, spray it on again & use a toothbrush in the groves. Other cleaners won't work, you need a spray-on bathroom cleaner (the kind in a can, NOT products like "Fantastic" in a spray bottle). Also, places that sell woodstoves have amazing products & cleaners for this.

I have black soot on the bricks surrounding my fireplace. I need to find a way to remove the black soot from the bricks of the fire place outside the fire place itself. Is there a soot remover?
