The brown residue is probably iron, not coolant residue. Treat as such and see if that helps. Not sure how, muriatic acid?

That'll also eat the concrete away. I'd just pressure wash it. If that didn't work I would probably just stop caring about it.

I hit the Dexcool that ended up on my driveway with a water hose before it had time to set in when I flushed my radiator.

Pretty sure that GM still puts dexcool into cars. The problems were with certain types of gaskets that reacted with dexcool and contamination of mixing with green coolant.
