    Hi Tess,

    The problem is that the oil has been absorbed into the porous paver. The things you've done are on the right track, but you may have to let them sit for hours. There is a section in this article about removing already soaked in oil from pavers. See if their ideas will work. Good luck. -Linda

    Get a bottle of Awsome at the Dollar Store, the spray bottle maybe enough, it is about a dollar & the refill is three dollars but you can fill the spray up about five times. Spray this on to the pavers. Let it soak in. Spray again. Soak. Spray again. This might take several times since it has been there a while & really soaked into the pores. But it will come out. (done this with a bottle of cooking oil) When you think it is time, spray again take a scrub brush & very warm water & give it a scrub. It took Very little light scrubbing for me & it came right out.

      Thanks for the reply, but which Awsome? is it the general purpose cleaner, or a degreaser?

    You need a good cleaner degreaser. Try Purple Power or Krud Cutter or get one from an automotive store.

    I would try repeatedly pouring and pulling up (with a shop or wet dry vac) some hot water with an automobile type degreaser mixed in. I would be sure to let it absorb down into the stain a bit and then pull up with good suction.

    Get a degreeser and put on scrub leave on about one hour
