    Garage Floor cleaning

    I know everyone has done a oil change or two and spilled some oil. Say you let the oil soak in. Does anyone know of a good product to get the stains out?

    ummm you can try this stuff called mean green from walmart. That with a scrub brush and some force behind it might work. Mean green is pretty good stuff

    ^ Yes, cat litter, dry dirt/sand, or you can power wash it out.

    Isn't cat litter/sand for when the oil hasn't completely soaked in yet? Once it soaks in and dries, and I'm sure how effective it will be?

    Even with cat litter its gonna be tough. I would say let a concoction of dish soap, laundry detergent and full strength degreaser sit on that for about 10every mins then powerwash out with at least 2500u psi to show no mercy.

    If you ask Denver he will tell you that the sells guys that walk around can do a good job, the sells guy left soon after he told him to do the whole floor, LOL

    but i usually use cat litter to pick up the large amount, and use Dawn and a scrub brush and let it soak for a little bit, pressure washer also works but I don't like the idea using it inside my garage

    Brake cleaner and a nice scrubber provides amazing results.

    A filipino's number one dream is to own a car before anything else. In the philippines, most private car owners consider their vehicles as an extension of their home but with one differrence: a home is where his wife cooks while a car is where his girlfriend builds a fire. Hmmm...

    Next time don't let it soak. Best way to clean it is to prevent it from happening...
