I wouldn't sand blast them as this will take a fine layer of sandstone off, and over time doing this again and again will just spoil the finish. What I used in my sandstone wall and patio was a big bowl of boiling water with bleach and Fairy Liquid. Scrub this in with a hard hand brush and wash the residue off with a hose pipe and it will then look new for the next year.
