Default Re: Muriatic Acid for cleaning dome interior

I knew it was nasty stuff and it makes me a little, uh, anxious. Being my first oven (and hopefully last) I wasn't sure if the firing would burn off the little bit of mortar stuck to the outside of the bricks so that sounds promising. I was also thinking of using a wire wheel on a grinder to buzz the mortar off but I don't know which is worse...the dust or the fumes from the acid.

Leave it alone, it is the inside of an oven.

Its a sucky job job no matter what. I wouldn't bother unless you have big gobs of dried mortar hanging off off you bricks and joints. The acid thing just isn't very smart, yet I would do it again. I'm just a glutton for punishment, one day my stubbornness will get myself injured.

Faith, no hosing , just another bucket with clear water and a sponge. Hearth bricks covered with a couple of layers of cardboard, so little water makes it to the hearth bricks or the under insulation.
