Whilst painting my garage windows with a Sadolin stain, the person dropped the open tin onto the slab path leaving a large stain. Some of it also splashed up onto the brickwork. The stain has a semi gloss finish so is probably more like a paint than an actual woodstain. It has completely dried now and I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions for removing it please?

I don't think you'll be able to completely clean the paint off, but a pressure washer might be effective. If that alone doesn't work you could maybe try and soften the paint with paint stripper followed by another go with a pressure washer.

Grafitti remover?

Or paint the rest of the slabs in Sadolin?

or.... you could just lift the offending slab and turn it over (hammer)

I haven't tried these at all. Simply saw an advert a couple of days ago.

There are lots of them available - they attach to your output hose and pick up wet sand slurry from a bucket in the same way that you would add patio cleaner or car washing soap. The sand does not go through the jetwashers pump!!

I have no idea if these are any good at all - but might be worth looking into.

Good luck
