How to remove Color Explosion™ (black paper coating) from concrete

Use a garden hose with water to remove as much of the stain as possible. Apply Dawn liquid dish soap and water to the stain, and work the area with a scrub brush. Rinse with water. If stain remains, make a paste with Oxi Clean Powder. Apply the paste to the stained area allowing it to rest for a few minutes. Again, work the area using the scrub brush and rinse with water. Repeat as needed.
