Is It Possible To Remove The Fruit Stains Of A…

Daniel Asked

Is it possible to remove the fruit stains of a fruitless pear tree off my colored driveway?

The Gardener’s Answer

Hello, Daniel in California: I assume you have a colored concrete driveway? I have to be honest and tell you that I have no expert knowledge on this subject, but here is information that I read; there seems to be a lot of remedies out there and the consistent ingredient in all the “recipes” that I read is finding a solvent that will actually remove the stain. Wisk laundry concentrate seems to be a favorite. Using a scrub brush, detergent, and water, repeat this process until the stain is lifted. I also read that lemon juice, baking soda, or hydrogen peroxide will remove stains on concrete as well. Other than using a power washer, you may just have to wait for time to dissolve the fruit stain. Sorry I cannot be more helpful.
