    I don't know about concrete but, with the brushes ,give them a good wash with bar soap, rinse well, find something to smack them against(outside) and then soak them in mineral spirits for 24 hours. If you have an old comb try to get in there to get the old paint out.Then wash them the same way again.

    Brush cleaner is available in paint stores but, if the dried paint is down to the "roots" of the bristles, better to just toss them.

    small cracks in concrete can be filled with a concrete crack filler. I got grey for my will need to have a caulking gun to use it. Comes in a tube like caulk...but it's much More runny.. if you cracks are layers and let each cure b/4 the next.
