Brick paver Patios

I have a brick paver patio about 14 x 21. I have two questions.

Last fall when the leaves fell off the trees (and my patio gets covered with them) it rained and the people did not come to blow away the leaves for a while. As a result the leave left stains on the brick pavers. I thought it would go away over the winter with the snow but it didn't. What can I use to remove those stains?

Also, last year I bought a gadget from home Depot to remove weeds that were growing in between the brick pavers. Now it seems that some of the cracks don't have enough soil in them. i don't want the pavers to loosen. Should I put anything in there?

you should work some small gravel into the cracks between the pavers - the gravel instead of dirt will help to prevent weeds and will keep them sturdy in place. i pull my weeds or use round up to kill (depending on if they keep comming back).
