Hi there.

I need some help please...!

Can someone please suggest the best way to remove white masonry paint from patio/stone?

I painted the house white and some has fallen on the floor below. Tried white spirit and it was useless, so was a jet wash. And now reckon I need something a lot stronger. But also don't want to discolour the patio too much (they're old red and beige stones).

Thanks in advance.

Really? Sanding works?! If that works, I'll be over the moon!

Thanks.

Read about brick acid but read on here it can just clean the brick/stone but not actually remove the paint? But may be an option. Do the wire wheels work?

Wire wheels on a drill should work.

Sanding requires a better quality paper that won't go blunt after a minute or two.

The paint is unlikely to have penetrated by more than 0.5mm at the most.

Photos of the stone work would be useful.

I don't think the paint stripper will make much difference. They normally only break down oil based paints. Cellulose breaks down wb paints pretty quickly but I am not sure that cellulose will help much given that the paint has soaked in.
