Not just Bon Jovi's biggest album

I have a 7' by 3' part of a sidewalk that was not given a course finish and when it rains that section is like a ice skating rink I was wondering what is the best/easiest way to give this section a rough surface so I don't do a faceplant on it?

Thanks
Mike

Yes, look into muriatic (hydrochloric) acid. It's available from masonry suppliers and most home centers. Make sure you carefully read and follow the instructions. Not diluted and straight from the bottle it is extremely strong so you need to follow the safety precautions. But, you dilute it with some water and put it on the concrete and it will fizz, bubble and probably turn yellow. You can brush the concrete with a stiff, synthetic bristle brush to get faster removal. Then wash it off with lots of water and the smooth cement will be gone and you'll be left with the sand on the surface.
