Easiest way to clean oil off garage floor?
 
I figure we should be experts in this subject by now, so what is your easiest way?

At the moment I have a minor leak but over time from re-entering the garage and exiting I now have a slip slide for my creeper, I heard kitty litter was the best way and other suggestions?

This is what it looks like after a few weeks, after a few months in the winter its a wonderful slip and slide from spreading around.

I use brake clean and a shop rag to wipe my epoxy painted floor. If you want to catch the oil, you can get large flat trays made to catch oil drips. Others use cardboard to absorb the oil. Cat litter works well too.

Diapers - for those water cooled engines. :)

But this works well: Griot's

Kitty Litter works best for me. I use it all the time for oil spills.

Griot's "oil-eater" product works really well on the stuff that's already on the floor:

get your kid to clean it?
And you did have a drip tray supplied with your car. I assume like the rest of us you took it off!:crying:

"What in gods name is that." Think of it as a disposable absorbent solution or incontinence product for your engine, when it's used on cars as old as ares :)

I put a piece of cardboard (box) under the rear to catch a small drip - works fine . . .change it every couple feww months.

Looks like your in Jersey, can you find one of Tony Sopranos crew to roll their hair around in it?

I am deeply offended, I have sent a priority mail pink envelope describing my feelings to you.

Buy a new house with a bigger garage. Then it's somebody elses problem?

One thing that I find works really well, is just sweeping the garage and using the pile of dust to sit in the oil. It usually absorbs most of it, and then some Simple Green finishes it off.
