How To Remove Oil Stains From A Driveway

Now, before we begin, I don't know of ANY foolproof way that works every time. However, some methods work on some problems.

The first thing to do is buy some cheap kitty litter. Now, I don't say cheap kitty litter because I don't want to spend money, the cheap litter is because the cheaper brands are reportedly the better ones at getting the job done.

Secondly, pour the litter over the oil stains and crush into the stain by crushing it with your feet.

After doing this, leave the litter to absorb the oil. For smaller stains it can be left for as little as 15 minutes, for larger stains, leave overnight.

When finished, sweep away the litter and discard. The next step involves scrubbing in a strong detergent over the area. There should be some overlap from the stain to the surrounding concrete, this is to minimize the difference between the cleaned area and the surrounding concrete. Now, give the area a real stiff brush.

After this, wash away the detergent and see if it requires further treatment. If it does, repeat the process. Some stains simply are too ingrained, however, this method reportedly works better than most. So, can you remember the ingredients to success?
