How to Clean Oil Stains Off Your Concrete DrivewayAbout 20 minutes
Looking to remove those pesky oil stains from your concrete driveway? This tutorial is an easy and environmentally friendly way to remove stains caused by oil, gasoline, diesel, or kerosene.
Remove Surface Oil / Heavy Buildup
Using a wire brush, remove any heavy buildup and excess oil from your driveway. This will help the cleaning product sink into the concrete and work faster.
Apply a small amount of SealGreen Gray-Out Waterless Oil Cleaner to the affected areas of your driveway. Usually a thin layer is enough to make the stain invisible.
Spread and Cover the Stain
Using a push broom, spread the cleaning powder over the oil stains enough to cover the spot completely. The cleaner will activate upon contact with oil and will not only clean the visible surface of your driveway, but is able to clean the pores within the concrete as well.
No Removal Necessary
Once applied, the cleaner does not need to be removed. If your concrete varies in color from the cleaning powder, you may want to apply the cleaner on a larger section of your driveway so it blends.
There you have it! A fast, no-hassle solution to clean oil from driveways. You can also use this method to clean oil from concrete patios and garage floors!
