To clean the stone on the interior of the home:

Use a stiff bristle cleaning brush or a wire brush to loosen any dirt from the surface then vacuum the surface until it's dust free.  Use TSP to clean  any areas that may have soot from a fireplace by spraying on the solution and wiping clean.

1-Qt. Tri-Sodium Phosphate Substitute


To paint the surface of the stone:

Use the BEHR Brick/Stucco paint matched to any color you pick.  The flat version should only require one coat to cover, but the satin finish might need two coats (due to the sheen).
