In reply to Milk paint removal by Diane on July 3rd, 2002 10:23 PM [Go to top of thread]

Milk Paint is, IMHO, one of the worst paints to try to remove. Most methylene strippers barely even soften the stuff. On a porous surface like brick, I'm betting that it will be next to impossible.

I'm hoping that Hy will chime in on this, he seems to be the expert on "Peel-away" which is a sodium hydroxide stripper (which I've never had the opportunity to try on milk paint).

This is my guess; apply a sodium hydroxide stripper to your brick and allow it to do it's duty. If your using a liquid form such as a deck stripper, make sure it stays wet for several hours by lightly misting it with water (Peel-away stays on for 24 hrs). Then use a power washer with at least 2500 psi to clean off the residue. If your brick is in good shape, you should be able to be fairly agressive with the washer.

Good luck!
