Surface Preparation:

IMPORTANT: Never wet surface before applying this product. Completely saturate area of hardened concrete to be removed with undiluted SAKRETE Concrete & Mortar Dissolver. Surface will turn white on contact, then darken. Allow to penetrate 10-15 minutes. Then reapply to same area. Keep surface wet with SAKRETE Concrete & Mortar Dissolver. Concrete will begin to soften and release from surface. Total time approximately 20-30 minutes.

If Concrete Mortar Dissolver evaporates, a white residue will appear. DO NOT RINSE! Re-apply SAKRETE Concrete & Mortar Dissolver to reactivate as needed until concrete has softened to a mush. On extra thick build up, repeat cleaning directions until build up has softened.

NOTE: Multiple applications used in conjunction with mechanical means may be necessary for removing stubborn or thick built up areas. Rinse with cold water with a garden hose and pressure nozzle, or use a high-pressure washer.
