In reply to HELP how do you remove paint from a Brick fire place by Emma Hawker on June 25th, 2002 07:17 AM [Go to top of thread]

I am kind of surprised no one has responded to this. My short answer is that it is nearly impossible. Brick is very porous and absorbs paint. There are various chemical strippers specifically intended to remove paint from brick and masonry, but I had only moderate success with those. If you can do a search on this web site, this has been a hot topic at various times in the past.
