    Amonoia should do trick. Or heavy duty toilet cleaner with should start to bubble and fizz then rinses away

    you could try pouring some baking soda in it and then sweeping it up? Deb

    Try kitty litter to absorb the oil.
  • Get a good driveway degreaser sold at any hardware or home improvement store.

    Simple green is biodegradable and was invented for that purpose! Use a stiff bristled brush and it should do the job.

    Take an electronic photo of stain. Apply undiluted Dawn liquid soap. Let stand at least 6 HRS. Wash with warm/hot water. Dab "dry. Another electronic photo. Allow to air dry, at least 6 Hrs., less if in sunlight .
    Compare finial results with previous photos; repeat as needed.
    Before second try, apply 1/2 solution of "Chlox" to remove organic portions of stain. Sun baked stains will take longer; if ever.
