oil stains in a garage
Oil stains on the
driveway are bad enough, but they are even worse when they
are located within your enclosed garage. There is one trick
to try that helps eliminate oil stains in the garage.
First, place newspaper
or cardboard over the stain to soak up excess oil. Then remove
the newspaper are cardboard. Next place kitty litter over
top of the stain, about half an inch thick, or thicker if
it is a big stain. Just buy the most inexpensive kitty litter,
your garage doesn't care if it is scented or not!
Allow the kitty
litter to sit for several hours or overnight. Then sweep up
and dispose of the kitty litter. If there is a drain, you
can powerwash it afterwards to remove the dark stain (most
or all of the oil will be soaked up by the kitty litter).
Do be aware if
there are any regulations where you reside regarding the disposale
of oil-soaked materials.
