Cleaning Mineral Deposits off of Brick Walls
LESLIE: Charlie in Texas is dealing with some residue from a sprinkler system. Tell us about it.CHARLIE: Yes, I’ve got some – my lawn sprinklers have been running on the side of the wall on my exterior brick; it’s a red brick home. And that white residue – the water out here is real hard and that white residue; I’m wondering the best way to take it off.
LESLIE: So you’re seeing mineral deposits; that’s really what you’re seeing when you see that white sort of fog. The easiest thing to get rid of it is a white vinegar-and-water solution. If you just put some white vinegar mixed up with a little bit of water and spray it on there you’ll see it’ll go away lickety-split.
CHARLIE: Great, I’ll give it a try.
TOM: Alright, Charlie. Thanks so much for calling us at 888-MONEY-PIT.
