Recommendations for concrete driveway sealer? Part 2

Earlier Orangputeh started a thread involving sealing an asphalt driveway which was very informative. I'm getting ready this week to power wash my concrete driveway and was wondering what are good products to clean and seal the concrete?
Got a good week of weather ahead here in Western New York, so I'm going to get this job done.
Thanks!!!

If it is oot side cement putting anything on it would not last very long. if it is inside they have sealer/wax at those big box stores. ZEP is what Home Depot carries how long it would last I have no clue. if you have some money to burn there is this stuff. https://www.por15.com/Floor-Armor-Co...ting_c_13.html

Long LIVE THE POWERSHIFT!! MAY IT NEVER RUST IN PEACE!!

Whatever you seal it with, it will become extremely slippery in snow and rain. I suggest nothing. Imagine a sealed wet Costco floor, Whoops! That hurt!

I did our driveway (20' x 40') two years ago using only plain water and an all surface cleaning attachment hooked up to my Karcher 2800 psi pressure washer. I only had green moss and black algae, no oil stains to deal with. A few spots I had to use the 20 and 40 degree nozzles to remove the moss and was impressed with how fast the cleaning attachment worked. I then used 3 or 4 gallons of Thompsons clear masonry water sealer with a paint roller to apply. The surface is "not slippery" when wet and I found it makes snow removal much easier.

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.
