Well, you guys are certainly getting me closer to trying to clean the fireplace again; I guess I'd have to do that before I painted it anyway, so yes, I'll give it another try. I believe that both times before that I attempted to clean it I just used of a cleaning solution that was recommended to me at a home fixup type place. So, if this tsp stuff is the best thing to use to clean up that sort of a surface, I'll try it first (that whole acid thing sounds like a bad idea since I have a springer spaniel puppy living with me now). Any tips on the use of this tsp stuff? I'm really grateful for all the advice you all are giving me -- I tried to get help at Home DePot so many times but they are soooo busy it's impossible to get someones attention for more than two minutes. Thanks and let me know.
