& Hammer Baking Soda. To clean fresh oil spots or grease stains from
a driveway or garage floor, cover the stains with Arm & Hammer Baking Soda
and let sit overnight. In the morning, sweep up the baking soda, and the oil
spots will be gone. Baking soda absorbs oil and grease from floors.
Cascade. To clean oil spots from a driveway or garage floor, sprinkle
Cascade dishwasher detergent on the oil stains, wait a few minutes, and then
carefully pour boiling water over the stain. Scrub with a stiff brush and
then rinse clean with water.
Coca-Cola. To clean oil spots from a driveway or garage floor, just
pour a can of Coca-Cola on the oil stain, let sit overnight, and hose clean.
Coca-Cola works as a non-toxic degreaser. If the oil stain has been there
for twenty years, you may have to use a six-pack—one can of Coca-Cola at a
Easy-Off Oven Cleaner. To clean an oil spill from a concrete driveway
(never asphalt), spray Easy-Off Oven Cleaner on the spot (while wearing
protective eyewear, rubber gloves, boots, and rain gear), let sit for a few
minutes, and then rinse clean with the highest pressure from the nozzle of a
OxiClean. To scrub away oil stains on a driveway, use Oxi Clean,
water, and a big broom or scrub brush.
Tide. Cover the grease stain with liquid Tide, scrub with a wet scrub
brush, then hose down the driveway. Tide cuts through grease stains.
Tidy Cats. To clean oil drips from a driveway or garage floor, cover
the puddle with a thick layer of unused Tidy Cats cat box filler, let it sit
for twenty-four hours, and sweep it up with a broom. The absorbent cat box
filler soaks up all sorts of oil stains from cement floors. Scrub clean with
hot soapy water.
WD-40. To clean oil stains from your garage floor, spray WD 40 on the
oil spot and blot clean with a paper towel. The petroleum distillates in
WD-40 work as a solvent.
