How to remove paint from brick


Hi All.

I am double-posting this as I'm not sure who reads the cleaning AND the Brick and Masonry forums.

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. I'd like to put it on my Home-Improvement blog, along with the other tips I've found out (the hard way???).

thanks,
James

I heard that Motsenbocker's Lift Off 5 works wonder on brick. Let me know if you try it.
