Need advice on stained concrete stoop

A house we just bought has a small stoop or porch in front made of concrete. The former owner stained it some shade of red, and is now fading. It looks bad. Can anything be done to restore the concrete back to just looking like concrete?

epoxy paint. you won't get the stain out, as a lot of the stains are actually a chemical reaction that is not reversible.
the good news is that you can get lots of colors besides gray

try cleaning a less noticeable spot with sandpaper or wire brush, the color may only be surface and easily removed, if you want the natural concrete color/
if not epoxy paint but painting concrete is never a good idea
