Concentrated, penetrating acidic cleaner for new brick, tile, concrete and masonry surfaces. Provides reduced chance of burn, discoloration or streaking as compared to muriatic acid.


Brick Clean 600 is a blend of acids, detergents and surfactants formulated for cleaning newly constructed brick or block masonry substrates. Brick Clean 600 dissolves and removes mortar smears and related construction dirt stains more safely than using straight hydrochloric (muriatic) acid. The added surfactant and wetting agents allow larger areas of masonry to be cleaned in one pass, thereby eliminating streaking and discoloration of the treated surface.


  • Safer to use than muriatic acid on new masonry surfaces.
  • Slow dry formula clings to masonry surface for greater penetration and softening of excess mortar stains.
  • Easy to apply – cold water rinse.
  • Acid combination with surfactant for increased etch and cleaning power.
  • Rinses clean with no streaks.

COMPOSITION: Phosphoric and hydrochloric acids, glycol compounds with surfactants and wetting agents

DILUTION & COVERAGE RATES: Handle Brick Clean 600 in plastic buckets only, as acidic materials will attack metal. Always pour cold water into the bucket first and then add Brick Clean 600 solution to the water. Do not use hot water for dilution. Apply Brick Clean 600 solution to a small test area (usually 4 ft. x 4 ft) to determine suitability and results before making the overall application. Dilution rates can be adjusted based on this pre-test where upon the Brick Clean 600 can be used straight (as is) as a concentrate on very tough stains, or diluted with one part of concentrate and up eight parts potable water for more shallow surface stains. Recommended coverage rates are typically 100 square feet per gallon average of diluted Brick Clean 600 cleaner, with textured or porous surfaces usually lower at approx. 50 square feet per gallon and harder, denser, less absorbent surfaces at a higher rate of 150 square feet per gallon. Recommended dilutions are listed below:  

To clean efflorescence and lime stains  Dilute Brick Clean 600 1 part up to 8 parts water
To remove mortar  Dilute Brick Clean 600 1 part to 1 part water
