    Pressure washing with hot water and detergent.

    Apply a generous amount of kitty litter to the stain. Leave on long enough to absorb most of the oil. Sweep up and follow with a grease cutting detergent(dawn ) and scrub with a heavy brush.

    I've always heard that you can use Coca-Cola straight from the bottle.... It also does other things like remove rust from cars too - and to think that you can drink anything that remains? mmm

    I use sawdust to remove grease and oil from concrete. Crushed kitty litter will work. Let it sit to absorb the mess. Then either Dawn dish washing liquid and water. Scrub and rinse.

    Hi there, if the oil is new apply a some clay cat litter over the stain. Let it sit and absorb as much as possible. Sweep away and repeat a few times if it's saturated. Then apply a degreaser and pressure wash. You can also use a good cleaner degreaser from the automotive store and a stiff broom.
