    I'd try chlorine and a power washer. If it's not a very large area, sprinkle Barkeepers Friend on the dampened area, scrub with a good brush, rinse, repeat. Just a thought. Best of luck.

    the first thing I’d do is figure out why the oil pan is leaking and fix the drip. Then clean the drive.

      Yup! It was oil pan and transmission pan (?) as well. Successful repair! Thank you

    Keep your space clean by using cat litter sprinkled on to absorb the problems...

      Good product! I'll try it on a drip pan, to see if my repair was 100%. Thanks!

    We have a newer concrete driveway that sometimes gets abused by contractors or serice personnel. We use TSP for large areas or areas not treated immediately or this Easy off spray for stains we catch right away. Scrub with a plastic brush and rinse with water.

      This sounds like the Bomb! Didn't think of TSP but I've got 2 bottles under my sink! Woo Hoo! So many great suggestions from dear readers! I'll get this licked for sure😀

    I use kitty litter, leave it on the stain for 1-2 days and sweep up. If some remain then use blue dawn dish soap and scrub in with a stiff bristled brush. Power wash after that.
