What can be used to clean a brick hearth extension ? Its 2' x 5' and 1 course above floor level. The face brick of the FP extends up to the ceiling.

I just installed laminate floors in the room butting up to the hearth extension so muratic I think is out.

Any other chems or methods out there ? Its not blackened up the cust just wants to clean it up.

I have heard that Quick n' Brite is the green cleaner that does it all, maybe give that a shot...It should be quick, and my guess is that it's bright when you're all done....ps....why didn't you clean it up before the floor went down?

Spirits of salt or brick rub are both good for cleaning up stained brickwork, but a housewife with a damp J cloth is the best method.
I built an Inglenook fireplace a few years ago with old Tudor bricks covered in mortar. My wife cleans the top of the hearth every day and you can see how it has brought up the top of the Rowlock compared to the rest of the brickwork
