I use mason sand. it seems like the finer the powder, the more it soaks up

jgwalt ha, i did this one time because my parents were gone for the weekend and i had some people over. my friend has a 63 nova that has a leaky auto transmission. anyway, i didnt discover it until the next day so that was bad. but when i left for school in the morning, i put some liquid laundry detergent on it and kinda rubbed it into the concrete. when i came home i washed it off. i had to do it twice to get it perfect, but it worked great, at least for ATF, if you do this use something at least that is phosphate free and be nice to our mother!

studad +1 on all the kitty litter users... put some down, rub it in with your foot, then sweep it up.

Thanks buddy. I've been using Simple Green with Tide and it has worked okay; not spotless.

Will brake cleaner leave it spotless? Good point and I can't wait to try it.

Um............................no, I'm pretty sure I said brake FLUID. It will wash away with a hose too.

4point Well i've been holding back on this because its not envirmentaly correct. Brake Fluid will do it, but you have to wash it right away or it will rust stain the concrete.

FWIW

I can't wait until you get married...He said his Wife doesn't like the look of oil stains.

There is an old saying you really need to memorize..."when mama aint happy, nobodys happy".


Oil stains don't bother me but my Wife prefers them to be gone from my driveway too.

Walkeraviator Behr paint makes a chemicl meant to remove oils and stains from concrete in preperation for cleaning garage floors.

woody_k Pressure washing was what I was going to say but I also waa going to add elbow grease. Get a hard bristle brush and use dish soap or as another one said laundry soap. Scrub it up good and then pressure wash it.

Levinoss pressure washing seems to work pretty dang well.
01-15-2008 06:57 AM
foxinthemudd ^X2! how about fixin the PS? that would make you and the wife happy! pressure washing is always good. cardboard works too. I would look into some concrete cleaner, your local home depot or any store like that should have it. I do believe that it takes oil and other stains off pretty well...

parrot head Whatever you do, do not put salt on concrete! Salt will damage the surface of concrete if any is left behind
01-15-2008 06:19 AM
debruins well either you can buy stuff made especially for it, or use cat litter or the sand /salt mixture they put on the road (up here they have 55 gallon barrel's full of it at the bottom of every big hill)

How do you remove oil stains on your driveway????

My wife is starting to give me evil looks whenever I park my Jeep on the driveway. I immediately put a towel underneath the power steering area(I believe I have a very slight and subtle leak there) but every so often, a drip gets by me and hits the driveway.

I love my driveway and I just put in stamped concrete(looks like hand placed rock but isn't; cheaper way to go) and it pains me to see a drip once in a while.

Do you guys know how to remove oil stains on concrete?

Ty in advance all.!!
