Sidewalk stain help


I now have a large stain on my sidewalk. While cleaning my golf cart, I had put baking soda on the battery terminals to clean them, but when I rinsed it off, it left a big rusty looking stain.

Is there anything that I can use to clean this up with? I would appreciate any help because it looks bad.

thanks,

Mike

Perhaps OXALIC ACID would work for you! http://www.alsnetbiz.com/homeimprove...alic_acid.html

Its extremely poisonous and in my area, we must sign for it at a pharmacy. So, if you try it, be very careful with it.
For sure don't leave where kids or pets could get into it!

Wildie, thanks for the info. I have read about this stuff on this site and will have to try to find some and use it. I tried TSP the other day and nothing happened in using that..

Hope that it works for you! I have used it to remove stains in wood, before refinishing!
