Another good reason to go electric


Recommended Posts

Mowing my lawn today and had to flip it on its side to clear out some junk from under it , didn't take that long but unbeknownst to me. it was dumping oil on my driveway. Ahhhhhhh! It's got oil all in the air cleaner, everywhere. Never again will I buy a gas mower or anything else. Having said that it's a Honda mower and has worked great for the last 4 years and this is my stupid mistake. Any good ideas on getting oil out of concrete? Never had anything that really worked well.

Clay, non-clumping kitty litter does an OK job of absorbing surface oil.  You do have to leave it in one spot though and it won't completely remove the stain but it'll pick up a lot and make the surface not quite so oily looking.

Thanks KDV, these are oil stains that are completely picked up on the surface but have left a stain that doesn't want to come out. Over the years I have tried lots of stuff with no real success. I just saw a video on you tube where a guy used Carb cleaner and that seems to work pretty well. I may try that just to add to the list. I have also never tried power washing it, anybody ever tried that? Anyway, thanks for the suggestion.
