This Has Worked For Me......

In reply to oil spots on driveway by gh on July 16th, 2002 01:17 PM [Go to top of thread]

Take a bag of cat litter (reegular type, not the clumping type) and form a dam around the oil spot. Take mineral spirits and pour a liberal amount on the oil spot. Let soak in for a minute or so, add more if necessary, and then pour cat litter over the area. Sweep the litter back and forth over the spot until everything is soaked up. Sweep up all the litter, and let the spot dry. If necessary, repeat.
I have used this method on concrete where a car that leaked dirty engine oil sat daily for over a year, and it completely removed the spot.
Good Luck! (and remember mineral spirits is flammable!)
