    Try making a paste with baking soda and lemon juice,apply and leave on long enough to break up the stain then used a scrub brush.

    Absorb as much as possible by putting kitty litter on the stain and allow it to set for a while. If you have a push broom it can help with this next process. After you clean up the kitty litter and dispose of it, apply dish soap liberally on the stain. You can use the broom to really scrub it. Allow it to sit for a bit. Rinse and if needed repeat. Not so sure I would use any lemon juice as it is acidic and may eat at your pavement. You should do this as soon as possible.

    There are products at the home improvement stores that soak up oil better than kitty litte, i.e. Oil Dry. Try one of those to soak up as much as possible. Then use an environmental friendly soap like Dawn which also cuts grease, work in with a push broom or hand brush then rinse with a pressure washer for best results in removing most of the oil stain. Pressure washers can be rented if you don't own one. Check your home improvement store.

  • Start by using kitty litter to soak up as much of the oil as possible. Then make a paste with baking soda or powdered laundry detergent. Put it on the stain, let it sit for a bit then scrub with a brush.
