Here's a step by step:
Hi Lexy I would rent a power washer or even a sand blasting power washer. After that I know they make acid solutions to scrub driveways with to really help get them totally clean.
Pressure washing would be my "go to". If you don't have a pressure washer you can rent one or buy a high pressure hose attachment for your garden hose. Then spray it down with a mixture and hose off. Depending on the type of issues, you may want to go with a degreaser for oil spots or just blue Dawn, white cleaning vinegar, and water.
Concrete driveways look great after power-washing them.
Hi! Sweeping and power washing makes a huge difference. I use Dawn dish detergent for greasy spots that are still there. Good luck!
My husband uses Simple Green cleaner and a broom. Gets the oil and dirt off...
WD-40. Did a leaky oil pan leave a big ugly spot in the middle of your concrete driveway? To get rid of an unsightly oil spot, just spray it with a generous amount of WD-40 and then hose it down with water.
Soda (Coca Cola). Here’s how to remove oil stains from concrete drive-ways and garage floors: Gather up a small bag of cat litter, a few cans of cola, a stiff bristle broom, bucket, laundry detergent, bleach, eye protection, and rubber gloves. Cover the stain with a thin layer of cat litter and brush it in. Sweep up the litter and pour cola to cover the area. Work the cola in with a bristle broom, and leave the cola for about twenty minutes. Mix 1/4 cup laundry detergent with 1/4 cup bleach in 1 gallon (3.7 liters) warm water and use it to mop up the mess.
Oven Cleaner. Get those unsightly grease, oil, and transmission fluid stains off your concrete driveway or garage floor. Spray them with Easy Off No Fume Oven Cleaner in the BLUE can. Let it settle for 5-10 minutes, then scrub with a stiff brush and rinse it off with your garden hose at its highest pressure. Severe stains may require a second application.
Kool-Aid. Nasty rust stains on your concrete? Mix unsweetened lemonade Kool-Aid with hot water. Scrub and the rust stain should come right out.
Baking Soda. Salt and commercial ice-melt formulations can stain — or actually eat away — the concrete around your house. For an effective, but completely innocuous, way to melt the ice on your steps and walkways during those cold winter months, try sprinkling them with generous amounts of baking soda. Add some sand for improved traction.
Ammonia. Tired of those annoying discolorations on your concrete work? To get rid of them, scrub with 1 cup ammonia diluted in 1 gallon (3.7 liters) water. Hose it down well when you’re done.
Pressure washing is the easiest way to clean a driveway - if you don't have one you can rent them at Home Depot and other stores.
If you have oil stains, etc here is some info for you
Pressure washing was my first thought. However, be careful, pressure washers can chew up asphalt and concrete if you are not careful.
Pressure was and Purple Power from Walmart cleans the driveway spotless.
Pressure washers is always a good way.
Like Ken stated pressure washing but not on asphalt. We have a recycled asphalt driveway and pressure washing is a big no no.
I have found the easiest way for me is to hose the drive way down and use Dawn and an old broom to work the Dawn into the drive. Then just rinse it off with a hose after is sits for about 15 minutes (don't let it dry out).
Hi Lexy, I hope your driveway is concrete, if not repost and we will help you.
