Mineral spirits or lacquer thinner with some light scrubbing should do the trick just fine!

Use a presure washer under low pressure and high water flow. If it's a lot of paint, like the whole house, get ready. You gonna here there a long time.

We use hot water pressure washers to clean off graffiti and spray paint from block walls. There are a lot of chemical strippers or graffiti removers on the market you can use during the pressure wash that will help. Seen some really good results with sand blasting... but we've never tried it. Best of luck.

Hi all,
Your tips and advice are really valuable and thanks for sharing these tips here. However,according to me A lighter, spray paint is flammable or paint thinner, don't touch it use gloves and a paint brush, then scrape it and wash is with water. Never did it but its a thought.

I always use Taginator and low pressure water with high volume. High pressure (above 1000 psi) will wash out the grout & if it is an antiqued brick it will remove the antiquing finish...
