q how do i clean pavers stained by a hose trellis dirt laying on them
HELP! These pavers were hosed down last night but the stain is still there, I had purchased trellis's and they were laying there for about 2 weeks until I could get to them. I'm not sure if just power washing would do it. Is there a solution that can be used that would not be harmful? The hose was laying there as well.

    Power washing should remove it. You could also use deck wash. Read the label before use and follow instructions.

    Carefully power wash then there is a product called Wet & Forget that might help with mildew. Put polomeric sand in the seams it helps to keep the weeds from growing.

    Power wash should take care of it. I do it to my weathered concrete patio and it looks like brand new.

    Try this on a small area.......a mixture of vinegar, baking soda and Dawn (1cup, 2 tbsp, a few drops) applied with a scrub brush. This will not hurt the concrete or stone and should remove the stain. And you don't have to rent a power washer. Just hose off the patio and you're good to go!

    I usually just clean it with a solution of professional strength bleach and water. Spray it on dampened bricks, let it sit for 5 minutes, scrub the surface with a stiff broom or brush than rinse with water. I have also used granulated OxiClean mixed with warm water and used the scrub brush. Both are quite inexpensive and have worked well for me (I live in Florida and also have mold on the bricks after a warm, wet summer).

    Turn them over, unless they are grouted in. Most are just lying on the ground with dirt in between.

    You could mix 1 part Tide detergent with 5 parts water and use with a power washer. It worked on my siding. 😁

    I have used the Olympic deck cleaner with good results. However, a solution of bleach and water should work too.

    We use bleach and a power washer.

    A lady named Janet, above, mentioned the concrete paver cleaner they sell at Home Depot......I've read it on here......I would ask around or look on the reviews on line and see the results. I always use bleach and water.......
