Answered
My son just had his driveway paved and someone with an oil leak parked there. Now he has this oil stain that even the oil change company can't remove. Help please.

    Cat litter put a nice pile on and work it in with a broom then sweep up, if that doesn't work pour bleach on it.

    Sawdust usually works fine, gasoline could be used but right after it it needs to be washed thoroughly with a good de-greaser and detergent.

    If the above methods don't completely remove the stain, you might try Purple Power. It's a degreaser sold at auto parts stores. I haven't used it on cement, but it removes grease spots from car mats, upholstery and clothing. I love this product!

    This happened to me. Cat litter the cement. I poured the litter over the oil stain, my daughters (in sneakers) ground it into cement. Oil stain all gone. Just brush the litter away.

    Cat litter. Let it sit for a while to absorb. Might take a couple of applications. then just sweep it up.
