Topic tags/keywords: removing paint concrete brick question

I have a few drops and spots of paint on concrete and brick on a patio. The paint is oil base primer and water base paint. Any help is greatly appreciated. Hopefully, it will be rather simple.

Not feasible as it is just a few spots under an iron railing. I was thinking of using a propane torch to lightly heat it and brush it with a wire brush.

How about muriatic acid? That’s what I use to clean brick or concrete. But be careful—it’s powerful stuff.

It seems this was DIY work. It is always better to take help from a professional painter. You may try mineral spirits.
