Rusty driveway

Well I was grinding on my BBQ at a buddies house last week and with all the rain we had turned the whole driveway in to rust fest. I have tried pressure washers and everything from lowes and HD with small amouts of help. Is there something i can get the stain out of the concrete?

You can get it at your local hardware. Muratic Acid is evil stuff! Don't walk on it. I would start at the end of the drive way and work my way back using a stiff brush with a handle on it. Let it sit for a while then hose it down. It will look like brand new.

Re: Rusty driveway

OK thanks. Some of the stuff I was reading online is saying to neutralize it with a ammonia and water mixture after it is done. Is this something I need to do with the already mixed stuff you buy from the store?. Also does it pit the driveway?

Re: Rusty driveway

Make sure you wear eye protection! I repeat. Wear eye protection! My son is just getting over a splash of caustic soda into his eye and he flushed it immediately for 20 min several doctor visits after emergency room visit. Very painful and can cause blindness. He was very lucky not to have any permanant damage. Wear eye protection!

Re: Rusty driveway

DO NOT USE STRAIGHT MURIATIC ACID!!!! It has to be diluted with water. Mix 1 gallon acid with 5 gallons of water. SOAK the stained area with plain water then apply the acid mix with a broom. Keep swirling it around and keep it wet with the solution. Then throughly rinse with water. Keep your kids and animals away while doing this. It's ok to keep cats around, I don't like them!

Good call...........
But one thing Nick. The cat should be used as the broom.
