    Cleaning oil off garage floor?

    What do you guys use for cleaning oil off of a garage floor? Does anyone make a solution that is cheap and works well? I would like to find something that can be bought at a local lowes. Any advice is appreciated.

    *It needs to be able to remove ATF, Motor oil, and gear oil.

    Kitty litter or Oilsorb. Leave it on there for about 50 years.

    cool, I will look for that. How much is is? How is is used? Is it something I can spray on and scrub and then spray off? I do not have a pressure washer so all of this will be done with a normal garden hose and a scrub brush.

    Don't laugh but Kerosene will strip a floor bare. It is flamable however so if you have a gas water heater in the garage would probably be a no-no, as is smoking.

    Used to do it in an auto shop back in the 80's and it would make the floor like new.

    Scrub the bad spots with the Kerosene and then clean it all up with some degreaser / soap.

    I'd not waste my money on any of the above. There is only 1 thing you need, but its pretty important you handle it with alot of respect.

    Muriatic Acid

    You will find it with the pool supplies. The stuff will eat right through your clothes, and also eat your skin. Its recommended you wear some nitrile gloves and safety glasses......that stuff is no joke. You need to use it in a well ventilated area too.....the fumes are NASTY!

    Just pour small amounts on the stained areas of concrete, let it sit for a few minutes........then work it in with a stiff bristled broom.
