    I've tried to clean some oil spots around the house yesterday however I couldn't achieve a fantastic result ... Nothing helped - powerful jet wash first then bleach & again power wash even after an intensive steam clean

    burning them is not a cheap option i think

    cool vids . back when i was in the garage trade we used to use clay floor granules .they work great but you have to leave them down for perhaps a week to draw out the deepest oil (keep the granules dry )

    I get calls from garages for a quote to remove oil stains from customers drives after their cars have been serviced.
    Needless to say I say no thanks :D

    ive tried wd 40 on concrete and it left a shadow also halfords stock one called gunk which works well after a couple of applications ,the best ive tried is ot8 which you will get from oil technics .co.uk but its expensive but great results , ask them for a free sample if its only for them few spots
