Crazy enough we just had the same situation. Off hand, try "The Works" toilet cleaner. That stuff can eat through anything. Oil based paint and spray paint came right off our garage floor today.

I don't have access to a power washer so I need to use liquid remover. Can anyone suggest someone I can purchase at Home Depot or lowes. Need to do this ASAP. Thanking in advance

I meant something not someone.

Methyl Ethyl Ketone, on the shelf next to the paint thinner, etc. as M E K.,and a wire brush. Use old towels/rags to blot/rub while the cleaner is still wet. It evaporates quickly. Wear gloves and,
as usual, read the warnings about inhaling this product.
Work in small area first to judge your results.

I found myself in the exact same situation (except, I was painting snowshoes.) I got black spray paint on the floor of the garage and my dad got pretty mad at me because our house is a rental. I have found that the best way to remove the paint is to use a wire brush and some paint remover. I have also found that it takes time, it won't come off right away.

I just got a little bit of black spray on my Dad's garage floor and immediately googled "how to remove spray paint from concrete" and this forum popped up. I didn't have access to any of the products discussed here so I asked my mom what to do and she said to try the "magic eraser" by Mr. Clean. I laughed and said it wouldn't work but gave it a try anyway. I ate my words cause it took the paint right off of the floor. Like I said, this was a small amount of overspray and even though it was already completely dry, it was still fairly fresh (about 20min old). Not saying it's going to for sure work in every instance but it's worth a shot! gotta give it some good old elbow grease too. Hope this helps!

Yes "The Works" works. We had blue spray paint all over the concrete and in less than 5 minutes my nephew saved the day!
Gone gone gone..
Thank You So Much for the help.

I recently had the situation come up of orange spray paint on concrete on an outside driveway, this sounds crazy but I used
gasolene and a firm scrub brush to remove it. I don't know why it worked but it did I poured a little gas on at a time scrubbed and it came off eventually doing the whole area. I did have a water hose running on stand by.

I didn't have time to go to the hardware store and get the right stuff, so I experimented! Luckily, my first try was a hit: Kaboom Foam-Tastic took it off no problem. Granted, the over-spray was light and it was fairly recent, but it worked! Hosed it off and it's gone :)
