Postby stelancs » Sat Jul 23, 2011 11:49 am

HI, newbe here after some advice.

I am working for a client and ive managed to get a small amount of scraped masonary paint on a small part of the indian stone patio area (from scraping off using wickes paint stripper, a small piece of the scraped paint was embedded in the sole of my boots) anyway the stone now has a few small patches where ive walked before I realised, ive tried a scrubbing brush and blasted it with the lance of a domestic power washer, all to no avail, what can you guys recommend to remove it, e.g. fluids etc etc
some of the stone is sealed some not, any advice and info appreciated
