Depending on where the area is you could try pressure washing them down or even grit blasting them.

Another alternative would be to try some brick acid to clean them up.

u could use oven cleaner, the foam type, wet the wall then spray on leave for 20mins or so then scrub off, do this a few times and remember to wash off with water and wear gloves
