What happens at 7pm? If husband not happy and obviously knows about it,then be sure to do it right the first time rather than rush into some untried remedy that might make it worse.

I googled this and found people recommending these solutions. Apparently, you're not the first one this has happened to. I'm listing the simplest ones or least expensive ones and things you might already have around the house. There's always a power washer or muriatic acid as a last resort (wouldn't let my kid touch the stuff. It's pretty nasty)

1. Aerosol hairspray like Aquanet and scrub with a stiff brush.

2. Apply baby powder to absorb if there's sticky stuff left from the snakes and then TSP cleaner(tri-sodium phosphate) and water and scrub until you make a paste. Let it sit and then scrub it off.

3. (These are things I thought I would try) One of those Mr. Clean magic eraser things or cat litter and a wire brush. Vinegar & salt? Or a combination of any of those.

Google has lots of sites on this although most are forum type and many different answers. But a few have a good list of suggestions.
General search- http://www.google.co...marks on cement

One that seems better : http://www.ehow.com/...f-concrete.html

Happy searching

For a real quick fix- paint the entire patio :)

or set off a bunch more, randomly around the patio as a new design idea.

Sandpaper. My kid did the exact same thing. :*%*(*^: I tried several things to get it off including a pressure washer. THe only thing that worked was some coarse sandpaper.

Great idea! Probably cheaper than anything mentioned, too.

Wire brush, soap and water + elbow grease



You left off an ingredient. Fixed it for ya:)

It's almost the seven o'clock deadline. Did it get done in time? What did you use?
