How do I remove concrete sealant without damaging stained concrete underneath.
So the back story is I poured a patio with the mixed in stain. Then after waiting the appropriate time I decided to seal it. I started with Behr low gloss concrete sealant which turned the stained concrete to almost a plain grey color. Basically it went on looking like good things were going to happen, but then as it dried it got milkier and milkier.
So on try number two I went to Ace and got a gallon of their laytex acrylic sealant. I put a layer of that on and decided while the overall outcome was not exactly what I wanted (still a lighter color than expected) I was happy enough to proceed. So I finished off that gallon and dipped into the five gallon can of the same stuff that I had purchased from an Ace closer to home. That batch yielded a milky finish as well. So basically I ended up with three different color patches on my patio.
Now Iâ€™m stuck with the idea of blowing all this stuff off and starting from scratch. The power washer seems to be doing a fine job of blowing off the Behr covered portion and the spot that I spilled gasoline on while filling up the power washer came off like a dream. However, the Ace stuff is holding tight with the power washer and a small spot where I figured what the hell and put some gas on it seeing if it would work. No luck. So here is the question
What the hell do I put on the Ace acrylic laytex sealant to get it off without damaging the concrete, or jacking up the stain?
