Oil Stain on Driveway

Hello all,

Is there a simple way to remove an oil stain from a driveway?


Any help would be greatly appreciated

Looks like blacktop, no way to remove, let it soak in and just seal it over next time you do the drive!

You might try scrubbing it with TSP, that should make it less noticeable.

At this moment less noticeable would be good. What is TSP?

TSP is more/less a heavy duty detergent. Washing powder might work.

Would liquid Dawn dish soap lift it, it works on ducks?

You never confirmed it it was black top!

Black top is petroleum based so the oil is not an issue and removing will do more harm than good.

Just let it soak in and when you re coat the driveway it will not show up.

If it's cement, just get some gas and a old scrub brush and have at it.
