One relatively successful low cost technique used to combat the destructive nature of salts in the fired bricks is to cover the walls with a thick layer of mud and straw plaster and to spray them with clay slurry. When the salts percolate to the surface of the mud plaster, the crystals form without damaging the underlying fired brick.
