How to Remove Grease Stains From a Flagstone

Flagstone makes for beautiful floors, patios and walkways. This look generally comes at a relatively high price however, as the cost of the flagstone itself as well as its installation can be significant. An accident like a grease spill can thus be reason for concern for a homeowner who has invested in flagstone. Fortunately, there is a method that is effective in removing grease stains from flagstone.

Step 1

Make a poultice from paper towels and acetone. Use enough paper towels to cover the affected area completely.

Step 2

Place the paper towels over the stained area of the flagstone.

Step 3

Pour small amounts of acetone onto the paper towels until they are saturated.

Step 4

Cover the paper towels with plastic wrap and tape down the edges of the plastic with masking tape.

Step 5

Allow the poultice to work on the grease stain for 24 hours, then remove the plastic and paper towels. Allow the area to dry, then clean it with a mild solution of dish soap and water. Repeat the entire process as needed; stubborn stains may require more than one application.
