How do I get the white spots off of my bricks. I have a indoor brick veranda. Where ever you put something down on it weather it be a plant or a cooler or even a rug the bricks turn white. The white seems to be something that has been used in the past to seal or wax the floor. I can take a razor scraper and scrape whatever it is off in minute quantities. Of course this will not do on a large floor of bricks. I tried some Acetone but that does not seem to get it. The rest of the floor has a shiny look to it. This also can be scraped with a razor blade.Does someone know of a product that might work.
