Keep Your Driveway Spot Free

December 21, 2008

Home Design Ideas(NewsUSA) - Concrete driveways and sidewalks take a lot of abuse. Look down and you’re likely to find dirt, oil and even rust stains. But some simple tips can keep all the concrete around your home looking clean and new.

Most dirt and grime stains can be cleaned away with a power washer. Power washers are relatively inexpensive to purchase, or may be rented.

For oil and grease stains, spread a thick layer of cat litter over the grease to absorb grease or

oil on the surface. Allow it to sit for a day, then simply sweep away the litter and the surface stain.

Rust stains are more difficult to remove. One effective solution is called Super Iron Out. To remove rust stains on concrete, wet the driveway with water. Next apply the stain-fighting solution directly to the stains with a brush or sponge. Then, simply rinse the stains away.

Super Iron Out can be found at most grocery, home improvement or mass merchandise stores. To learn more, call (800) 654-0791 or visit
