  • To remove oil drippings on concrete: Soak with mineral spirits for 30 minutes and scrape with a stiff brush as you add more mineral spirits. Immediately after scrubbing, absorb the grease with oil towels or newspaper. Allow concrete to dry. Then wash with a solution of laundry detergent, 1 cup of bleach and 1 gallon of cold water. Repeat until stains are removed.
  • Spread several thicknesses of newspaper over the area where a bit of oil has spilled. Saturate the newspaper with water and press firmly against the floor. Allow to dry thoroughly, remove and the oil spots will be gone.
  • To eliminate oil spots, sprinkle the area with sand or kitty litter. They both will absorb the oil and you can sweep it up lately.
