Have you tried oxi-clean it is non toxic and works wonders. Spray it on let sit till almost dry use a deck brush and rinse with water.

I have new natural stone on my front steps. Today there were several brown spots on one of the stones. I have 2 emerald cedar trees directly in front of the landing where this happened. Is this sap from the emerald cedars and if so how do I get the marks off. They are not sticky, just brown marks. Many thanks.

How do you remove tree sap from a concrete patio? It's older rough concrete. I've used bleach, Comet, and concrete cleaner. Nothing works. I've scrubbed until my back ached.
