    Default Cleaning a face brick wall

    Can someone please tell me what I can use to clean this wall? We removed dry walls and are left with these marks. I am not sure what caused it, most probably the material used for skimming the dry wall.
    We tried sugar soap, but I was thinking if swimming pool acid might not do the job?
    Any advice?

    Thanks
    Is it used undiluted, using a steel brush?

    I use a pressure washer to prepare any walls for painting... if that is not an interior wall with ceilings or wooden floors that can take a splash... I would go with a chemical and pressure washer on that rough surface if at all possible.

    AVZ,

    Spirits of salt is hydrochloric acid. And so is pool acid.
