Q:

I just bought a house built in 1921 and there are few things I want to change including painted brick.  The previous owners painted the front entryway brick white. The only other brick on the house is the chimney. The chimney is red brick so I assume underneath the entryway paint is red brick and I would like to return it to the original state. I have read about solutions that do this. Please tell me what you think.
