The best way is to apply SealGreen Efflorescence Remover with a garden pump sprayer. Allow it to remain for 5 minutes and then rinse with a pressure washer.
In general, cleaning efflorescence from a surface is an ongoing solution rather than a cure. Sealing a surface might be a solution, but if water still finds its way into the surface, you could end up with spalling, which is a destructive process that should be avoided.
Efflorescence occurs as the surface heats up from exposure to the sun and the water inside the concrete or brick will evaporate and move the salts to the surface
SealGreen Efflorescence remover immediately upon contact with efflorescence it will create effervescence. If no effervescence appears it is not efflorescence what you are trying to remove with our product. It may be polymeric sand glue hazing your paver.

We had some white staining on our concrete paver patio from concrete patio planters. We tried everything and weren't successful in removing the stains until we learned it was effloresence. This remover did an amazing not only in getting rid of the white stains, but did a great job cleaning the patio as well. It looks brand new, we were so happy with the results.
Did absolutely nothing.
It is very important that you define if the white stain you are cleaning is efflorescence. We have published a video that helps you how to determine if it is efflorescence https://youtu.be/pvgD7Z6yqdI
Unfortunately, we have something other than efflorescence.
Best I've ever used. No doubt I have tried every homemade and other remedy on the market. This works quickly and you can see it work. And unlike murratic acid it is completely safe and doesn't require any extraordinary measures. The best, period.
We we happy with the result. I recommend the product. I will buy one more bottle because it wasn't enough. It doesn't have a chemical smell.
This stuff works! We had a brown sealer/overlay applied to our gray concrete patio...looked great at first, but within a few weeks nasty amounts of white efflorescence appeared on top. The contractor that put it on was no help. Luckily I found this and it did the trick. For it to work effectively, I had to use a 50/50 dilution on the first pass (stronger than what the instructions suggested). After rinsing, I let it completely dry, and then did a second pass at full concentrated strength to “spot clean” any remaining white areas. As the instructions suggest, I used a garden chemical sprayer to apply it, and just a standard garden hose to rinse. Results were amazing.
Contractor had a request to remove efflorescence from concrete. This product worked very well on a test area and want us to remove the efflorescence from the entire project.
