We were having a cement patio replaced and the concrete was too watery resulting in numerous splashes to the aluminum siding, wooden trim and windows. Is there a way to remove any of this dried material?

    Muriatic acid might do it

    Pour some sugar in a small bowl and add enough water to make a thin paste. Dribble the sugar solution onto the concrete spatters, or use a rubber spatula to smear it on. Wait five minutes for the sugar to soften the concrete. Scrub the spatters with the scrubbing side of the sponge until they come free of the aluminum. If traces remain, apply some more paste and scrub again. Rinse well with water while rubbing the area with the soft side of the sponge to ensure that no sugar residue is left on the aluminum.

    Being in the concrete buisness we used to use vinegar to get it off metal.

      I have the same question for getting splashes (not many) off of vinyl siding?!
