How to Remove Oil Stains from Concrete

Do you feel like stains are complex mysteries?

Painfully obvious nuisances that draw our attention over and over again.

Well, that’s how I’ve felt for the last 7 years.

You see, we had a huge oil stain on our concrete garage floor. And it’s been driving me nuts since we moved into our house.

For some reason, out of laziness or fear (of what I have no idea), I’ve never tried to remove this blotchy mess.

But I’m always up for an adventure as well as a great cleaning experiment.

Are you ready to discover how I was able to remove oil from concrete? 

Ways to Remove Concrete Stains

It’s crazy how many different kinds of cleaning solutions we have.

Yet not all of them are the “solution” to our stain problems. How do you figure out which one will work and which is a dud?

In this week’s new video, I conducted an experiment with 4 different methods to see which one could reduce the oil stain in our concrete to a distant memory.

While two of the products work like champs (think Rocky in Rocky IV — take that Drago!!) it was a bummer to see the first dynamic duo fail miserably.

And, I don’t even own a cat. So I had to make a special trip to Pet Smart for the litter.

Kitty litter and WD-40 might work for your situation though, so you shouldn’t rule them out of your game plan for concrete stain removal.

Oh well, a few bucks down the drown. But I’m happy to help someone else avoid the same blunder.
