Question Concrete Slab Refinishing

I would like to refinish the concrete slab in my bathroom and I know there is a concrete washing technique but I don't know the procedure. Thanks for the help.

Refinish it to achieve what? Flatter, smoother, repair spalling?

I would like to make it smoother and to fill in the chips I made while removing old tile. Thanks

there are a lot of "diy decorative concrete" articles and instructions out there. I do decorative concrete for a living so I see almost on a daily basis a homeowner following these diy techniques. Long story short, if you are very confident in your abilites, go for it. If you have never worked with concrete before, leave it to the pros. There are so many options these days when it comes to concrete. Some of the more popular are acid stains, acid washes (5 percent dilution of muriatic acid), and polishing which is in my opinion the most durable and the most attractive.
