You may need to poultice the remainder of the stain out. Try to find out what the base of the stain is and then  poultice with a chemical that will break down the base of the stain.

Subject: [sccpartners] Red dye in stone and concrete


We are just finishing a stained concrete floor project and I had a little mishap when my faulty pump up sprayer blew up in my face and some water based red dye splattered on some field stone in a wall and more landed on a concrete walk (I have been able to get much out of that but it has been raining steadily for 2 days and haven't been able to test).  Anyway, any advice on getting such stuff out of the stone and walk would be very welcome. fyi it is ameripolish surelock red stain.
