AbstractThis Note is concerned with some of the organic stains that are most difficult to remove from porous materials, those of the bitumens generally known as coal-tar pitches, asphalt, and asphalt emulsions. Although these stains can never be completely removed from some masonry surfaces, a marked reduction in the intensity of the stain can be achieved using a poultice consisting of a solvent and a chemically inert material applied to the stained surface.
