Anyone successfully remove battery acid stains from driveway?
Had to change out a battery last week and some of the residue ended up on the pavement and it rained shortly after.

Was only about a week ago...I'll try to take a picture later.

I know they use Muriatic acid for cleaning concrete and there are lots of u-tube videos showing the process.

First thing I'd try would be baking soda. Apply a nice coating and then dampen it so it won't blow away and see what happens. I'm not sure if it would even work, but it's cheap enough to give it a shot.

Once you clean the battery acid you will have to pressure wash they whole thing so get ready for that

I actually pressure washed it yesterday. Going to try the baking soda and bleach methods separately knowing it may or may not work.

I am planning to run over it again with the washer.

If you have not already done so, cover the area with baking soda to neutralize the acid. Clean with the water hose and then spray with bleach. I would scrub it with a wire brush. If you have a brush on a drill bit, use that since you have a large area.

If that doesn't work, use muratic acid. Once you're done, sprinkle the area you used muratic acid with baking soda to neutralize it.
