I had the same problem (paint on bricks). I searched this and every other home repair web site I could find. The bottom line--there is no way to remove paint from bricks except to hire masons to do a chemical cleaning. I tried every kind of chemical stripper, a butane torch, various kinds of acid, standing outside for hours on end with a scraper, using a stiff bruch, water pressure, etc. Apparently the problem is that brick is so porous you just can't get the paint out. The masons were incredibly expensive, but I have grown to hate that paint so much I didn't mind as much as I usually would
