Question

How do I remove tire marks from painted driveway?


My dad painted the driveway with flat paint and did not seal it. As a result, he now has tire marks on the paint and wants to remove them without ruining his paint job.

Anyone have any suggestions?

clean the drive as best as you can with tide detergent by wetting, then scrubbing, then rinse and let dry. Apply another coat, then tell people that they are not allowed to drive onto the driveway.
