Removing sunscreen stains from stone paving

Removing sunscreen stains from stone paving

Another pool-related question.

 

I've noticed our new natural stone pavers have some stains on them. I presume it is the oil from guests applying sunscreen near the pool. I've tried blasting with the pressure hose but it didn't have much of an effect. Any other suggestions? I am starting to think we made a mistake when the paver advised not to seal the stone...

We recently used baking soda to get a stain off our sandblasted granite paving. It worked reasonably well. Just leave on for a few hours and then hose off. I believe that the quicker you get onto it the better your results will be.

 

Hopefully other Workshop members will have other suggestions for you.

 

Good luck,
