    Stained Concrete ?

    Question:

    My rental home that I am leaving soon as stained concrete flooring. For the last year, we have had a foam pad and area rug covering part of it. Well, b/c of the humidity in MS, the foam pad stuck to the concrete and when I went to lift it off, some of it stuck to the concrete.

    We have scraped the actual pad off but now it has left a sticky residue on the floor. My question is how do you get the foam that stuck to the stained concrete off without ruining the actual stain and finish on the concrete?

    We have Goo Gone, a disinfectent and an industrial polisher with no luck. Any ideas?

    Citrus juice? They seem to use that for everything.

    WD-40 works pretty well to take most adhesive residues off anything... Maybe give it a try in a small area?

    Try bleach. No lie, works wonders.
