    Has anyone had any luck removing the dyed black mulch stain from the pavement? Had a customer have their mulch delivered wet, and left a black stain on the concrete. Now they want that stain removed. Any luck??? Any Help??

    I used bleach and a power washer. I sprayed the bleach on the stain let it soak then sprayed it again, then used my pressure washer to wash away the bleach and spray away the dye. I have also used this method to get rid of oil stains too, but I had to do a little scrubbing with a wire brush.

    Bleach and a pressure washer will do the trick. In the future I would use a tarp to protect your customers driveay.

    If you have it try Spray Nine, we use on sealcoating mistakes on concrete and what not.
