made the mistake of treating the fence with wood preservative in the wind and got some of the stuff (quite a bit) on some new paving slabs.. tried using bleach while it was still wet.. no good.. any ideas?

i heard of someone putting this stuff on a fence like a spray and the wind was taking over the top of the fence without them realising it. Turned out there was a car the other side and it got covered with the stuff.
Thank god it wasnt me:oops:
