OT but not a lot

Post by 1922ford » Mon May 27, 2019 7:32 am

Good morning all. What's on my miniature mind is removing, as best as possible, oil stains on a smooth concrete floor where our T's have unceremoniously marked their territory. There have been posts in the past but I can't seem to recall the magic words to find them in the archives. So if you have any of the links or have some suggestions of your own, any and all help is greatly appreciated. Thanks kindly.

Have a great Decoration Day Monday.

Tom in Taylor Mill, KY 41015, just south of the Mason Dixon Line.

I couldn't find a MTFCA post on that but Googled "removing oil stains from concrete" and found many suggestions including this photo.

I use kitty litter and a piece of board with a bit of elbow grease.

I’ve used the cheap cat litter from Walmart with good results. When there is no liquid remaining, put down fresh and grind it in the stain with your foot. Remember, to dispose of all contaminated materials as per the guidelines of the EPA. Sure would hate to hear you ended up on San Quentin death row over a dirty floor.

John has it correct. Kitty litter or oil dri, a 2 x 4, and elbow grease. Works better than you would guess.
