Garage-floor repainting.. After etching the old surface, how do I rid of the fine powder?

This is my first time painting my garage floor. My old car leaked a lot of oil and now that I have a new car, I'd like to get the garage looking new again.
What I have
They go on in that order. However, after etching the concrete, there is a fine powdery residue. The instructions say if there is powder, re-etch with a diluted solution. I've done that ... three times now. I've tried my best while it is wet to scrub the solution out while spraying with the hose. (The 3rd time I rinsed for 30 minutes straight).
Every time there is a fine powder left. How do I get rid of it so I can prime the surface? I've tried sweeping it, vacuuming it, its still there.
Please help.. I want to get this done right, and I am left without my garage.
