    Sandstone

    I was working in the yard and had the Roundup out. I did not notice it was dripping and it landed on my sandstone coping. I now have six big dots of liquid on the coping. I tried to use, dawn, bleach and acid to get it off. None of them worked. Any ideas? Thanks


    Scratch the round up it may have been from my blower leaking oil/gas. Sigh...........


    Still any ideas?

    take some oil dry or kitty litter and lay it on the spot for a while press it down and hold it there with a brick etc, It may take several aplications to get as much as you can out. Then you can take some dishwashing liquid and put it on the spots full strength for a while. If that doesn't work you can try patio cleaner.

    Unfortunately it dripped the day before so it had lots of time to set in. The round up was leaking too but that came up. I think it is just going to take time and it will lighten up. Thanks for the reply.

    De-Solv-It Contractors Solvent works fairly well at removing oil.

    Pool Perfect (enzyme) also works well at removing some types of oil.

    I saw this advertised today with a good review.DuPont™ StoneTech® Professional Oil Stain Remover. I don't know if you have resolved the stain, but I wanted to post this in case you haven't
