Why do you want to clean it? Clean it of what?

We'd need to know exactly what you want to remove, but my usual "go-to" concrete cleaner is Trisodium Phosphate. It'll remove most of what you need and it cleans up with water.

So you'd wash the concrete once with TSP, then go over it again with water.

Clear as mud?
