I have a brick fireplace that has been great over the years. I was wondering, since I can't pressure-wash the grout or brick with a cleaner, what can I use to bring the brick and grout back to life?

    For outdoors, use diluted pool acid (muriatic acid) and a scrub brush. Wear goggles, rubber gloves, coveralls. Rinse with clear water afterwards. – Jimmy Fix-it Aug 31 '14 at 13:07

What we did with our 32 year old brick fireplace was paint it white. It was a lot easier than trying to clean the brick and grout.

    Thanks for the idea but this doesn't really answer my question and I'm not interested in painting it. – DᴀʀᴛʜVᴀᴅᴇʀ Sep 2 '14 at 4:37

    Aww, what a shame to cover up masonry with paint! – iLikeDirt Oct 2 '14 at 0:41
