Default removing spilled paint from drive

Had a spill of green paint onto my regular cement drive...not stained or
coated in any way...just slab cement. What's the best way...if
remove the remaining paint "clouds" ? was able to wash off most of the
paint before it began to set...but have a cloudy residue left with various
shades of green in about 10 sq ft area..spill is two days old now.

Would a 3000 psi power washer take this off...can get/rent one from HD...bit
don't want to waste the money if all I get is wet concrete ?

any type of "cement acid wash" that can be applied first "

Muriatic acid is used to prep concrete for sealing and painting, but
eats some of the concrete. It can
expose aggregate and might not touch the paint. I have seen it used to
"clean" concrete and didn't seem
to touch grease or paint.

Any ideas are appreciated...

Thanks, Tim
