I’m 60 years old with a bad back. My driveway has turned very dark and dirty over the years. I’m a disabled nurse so money and strength are at a minimum.

    Have someone power wash the driveway. It will clean up very fast with a power washer. You may even be able to do it, because it does not require much strength.

    Well, you could either see if one of your neighbors has a power washer or you could rent one. Then maybe hire either a neighborhood kid or if u have any kids in the family ask them. That would be the cheapest way. Also, you could post on facebook in services needed and see if anyone responds with a price you can afford. My teenage son gets jobs like that all the time. Good luck to you!

  • I have had several back surgeries so I know how you must feel. Borrow or rent a power washer. Nothing a little vinegar, Dawn dish soap and a long handled stiff bristle boom to fix. Squirt the dawn, brush it up till it foams a bit, generously sprinkle white vinegar, brush the entire surface and then hose off. Repeat in problem spots.

    You can get a power washer nozzle for your garden hose for about $20 and sit in a lawn chair and move it around as you sit and use it. You can take your time and stop as you see fit.

    You might also try oxygenated bleach (Stain Solver). Check out a couple of YouTube videos to see if you're physically able to use this method: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=stain+solver+on+driveway

    I used cheap 100% bleach in a garden sprayer on my aggregate concrete. You may rinse it or not w/a hose. Reapply bleach on extremely dirty places. Take your time and do a little at a time if your physical limitations require it. I did! Good luck.
