I think Autosmart do something called Congo? The trouble is it'll be a 5ltr job unless you can find somebody on eBay who's decanted into smaller bottles..

It's going to be an acid job.
I would try vinegar on make up pads to loosen it up.
Whatever you do don't rub it
degreaser doesn't do anything on lime

Degreaser is definitely NO as it won't touch it at all.
You will need some sort of strong acid cleaner or Makita tool :-)

Autosmart Congo was designed to remove concrete and cement from construction vehicles, so will be perfect for what you need. 5 litres will be somewhere around 20 or 30 quid. Well worth it if you've got concrete on your car!!!

Hope you get sorted.
