How do you remove antifreeze from concrete?

Answer

To remove an antifreeze stain on concrete, the stain should be saturated with water, sprinkled with laundry detergent and then covered in newspaper. Antifreeze is dissolvable in water; once it has been saturated with water, it can easily be soaked up.

Once the newspaper has laid on the stain for around 3 hours, the papers can be removed and the stain should be gone. The steps can be repeated if the stain is not completely dissolved. The area can also be scrubbed with a nylon bristle brush. The brush should be rinsed in clean water and then used to remove the excess antifreeze and detergent residue. Chemicals should never be mixed with the chemicals in the antifreeze. The process should be done in a well-ventilated area and the individual should wear protective eyewear and gloves.
