I was painting my kitchen chairs outside and put newspapers around so the paint wouldn't stain the cement but there are a few drops here and there. Is there something that can take it out?

I have found that using nail polish remover for Wood Fence small spot stains using a bit of elbow grease can remove these from a sealed coloured driveway.
Can anyone recommend a home remedy to remove or at least fade and make less noticeable white spray painted words on my concrete steps? They are not "bad" words, thank goodness, lol, but it does make the exterior of my home trashy-looking. I've tried bleach and Goof-Off for Graffiti. Any suggestions? I will try! Thanks.

I do not know how you would remove paint, so I would paint over it. I believe the only way to remove it properly would be with sandblasting.
What is the best way to remove old paint from a driveway and what is best to replace it with? Stain? It's a very hot, Florida location that's in the sun most of the day. Thanks.
How do I get old paint off of concrete stoops? I began with a pressure washer. I tried paint stripper and the pressure washer. I still cannot get the remainder of paint off. I am not 100% sure, but I believe the paint is latex.

I attempted to remove very old paint from my concrete steps with a pressure washer with very little success. I only have one or two coats of paint to remove, and the paint has even worn off in places just from age. However, I increased the pressure on the nozzle as much as I could without damaging the concrete, but still only a very small amount of paint came off. Am I doing something wrong or is there a better method to remove paint from the concrete, like paint remover or some other chemical? I should add that these steps have a rough not smooth texture to the concrete. Please help! Thank you!
