Removing paint from cement
(Hi, I'm new here)
I hope this is where this post belongs... it just seemed appropriate to put a paint question in the painting section.
Anyway, we have been doing some painting in a new house, and we were cleaning off the rollers, brushes, pans, etc in the back yard by the cement patio.
The paint is a latex interior semi-gloss for bathrooms, so we were washing it out in a 5 gallon bucket with water and soap. This watery-soapy-paint mixture spilled onto our cement patio, and immediately stained it the color of our bathroom!
I immediatly began hosing it down, but with no luck...
We then tried to scrub it off with soap and water, and again, no luck...
The problem is that since it is such a thin film due to it being so watered down, there is really nothing to scrape or scrub off. It is almost like the dye from the paint just soaked right into the concrete.
So, I am wondering if there is ANYTHING I can do to get this paint off of our patio! Any help would be very much appreciated.
Thank you in advance!
