BLO & Kerosene.  Mix 1:1 and broom/roller over the concrete on a warm day - 
needs heat to work.  Kerosene will allow BLO to penetrate and then 
evaporates and BLO will "congeal" back together.  Needs to be re-applied 
(same mixture) every other year, depending on usage...

The mixture is adjusted to a higher kerosene percentage for older concrete, 
less porous concrete, etc...
