I'm about finished sealing my leaky FSJ's. My wife has asked that I remove the evidence from the driveway. This morning I used the Castrol purple stuff for driveways, and it made a good start, but I'm afraid some of that stuff is in there pretty good. Someone suggested Muriatic acid, but I've heard there can be a trick to getting that out of the concrete.

Any Ideas??

Box of Tide and a pushbroom worked pretty well for me.

If you have concrete use any good grease remover, castrol, tide etc. Follow up with Muriatic acid and then hot water, steam or a pressure washer.

Muriatic acid scrubbed into the concrete by hand with a 3x6" metal bristle brush, rinsed well and then soaked w/ bleach overnight is the best I've ever been able to do. There will always be some gray-ish blotch...but if you squint just right, you won't notice it much.
