How to remove paint from brick
I have just bought a new house off-plan, and it seems like the builders were a bit careless with the paint. They've spilt some paint onto the bricks on the driveway, and no matter what I do, I can't get rid of it. Will I have to change the bricks? Here's what I've tried so far:
- Paint remover - Just took the top off the paint. Still quite a bit in the grooves and IN the brick
- Pool Acid - Was told this would bring the paint out. Didn't really work. Still quite a bitof paint IN the brick
Any tips would be helpful. Then I can put it on my Blog with tips that I've compiled on making a great home...
I had surprisingly good resultsd with a cheap pressure washer.
This worked for SOME paint spills but not for others.
Worth a try.
Thanks. You know, I didn't even think of that. I have a little steam pressure washer. Maybe I should try that. Maybe pour some paint remover on the paint, and use the pressure washer to do a deep soak, high pressured, HOT rinse...
