Cleaning grease out of brick

I spilled the grease trap on my grill that's by the pool today, and now I've got this dark brown grease all over the place. What is the best way to clean this up? I was able to sop up most of it with paper towels.

Probably a pressure washer to get down into the pores of the cement!

How large is the stain?

I would try a bristle brush and a water/detergent mix to break the grease. Then rinse with a lot of water. If it remains dark after most of the grease is removed you could try a paste of Oxy-Clean and rinse again. I think it has enzymes and oxygen bleach.

A power washer could also work but may not be worth the trouble to get one just for a small area.

If you do not have a power washer that should not be too hard to do by hand as suggested.
