My driveway looks messy from all the stains and brown splotches. Is there anything I can do?

Over time driveways can collect all kinds of stains. Page 179 in The Trouble With Tulip has some great ideas to remove these marks.

Step One - Wet down the stains with a hose and then, believe it or not, sprinkle them with lemon Kool-Aid! Cover them with plastic, let them soak for about fifteen minutes and then scrub with a brush and rinse. The stains should be gone.

But,if they're not -

Step Two - Get some oven cleaner, spray it on kind of heavily, let it sit for fifteen and then rinse.

Good luck!

Mindy, I love your Tips.

Years ago, when working on cars on a rough concrete driveway, I sprinkled Tide laundry powder on the oil and grease and left it! The Tide would soak up the liquid oil and then God's rain would wash it off and the drive was clean again. Even the grease stains would be cleaned.
May GOD bless your writing.
