    never had this issue before

    seems on of our guys was sloppy with PL.
    he got some on his shoes and we have it on some pavers...

    we have scraped it down to the residual.

    any cleaner that will remove the rest?

    What is PL anyway? I used Xylene on our colored concrete jobs, but that was with a solvent sealer as well.

    gas to get the PL off and then a paver cleaner to remove any residue left over.

    the gas can stain the pavers.

    make the employee fix it on his own time and replace the pavers.

    yes the gas will stain the pavers if you leave it on there, that is why you use the regular paver cleaner to rinse it all off. we have done it plenty of times and never had a paver stain, PL happens and you need a way to remove it.

    Scrap off all you can then use a wire brush to remove the small bits left in the pores. Or like someone said just replace the brick.
