Removing Tire Marks from Brick

Brick pavers add visual appeal and charm to driveways and walkways. A less expensive asphalt driveway is as functional as one made of brick, yet not as attractive. While you might be willing to accept tire marks on an asphalt driveway, letting the dark marks remain on a brick driveway detracts from the surface's overall charm. Fortunately, it is possible to scrub off the marks using common household products. Before cleaning the bricks, always test the cleaning product on an inconspicuous area, to make sure the cleaner won't discolor the surface.

Re-dip the brush in water; continue to scrub until the tire mark disappears.

Step 7

Rinse the surface with your garden hose to remove all the scouring powder and detergent.
