with tape but when the tape was peeled there was some paint under the tape. Mineral turps ?

    pressure washer.  paint soaks into the concrete and turps won't get it all.  you've just discovered, btw, that tape on concrete always leaves small gaps that will be filled by paint.  so what you do with the pressure washer is put down the strongest tape you can find [I'd like us HVAC metallic duct tape] over the paint you want to keep and spray from the tape side away from the tape at an angle.  -- grampa

    I would be looking at mechanically abrading. Dissolving it will just make it migrate into a semi-porous material like concrete.
