Re: easiest way to remove oil stains?

I normally splash some petrol on it, brush it in with a broom and then use the a highpressure cleaner to blast it off.
Works a treat, I used to work as a spray-on-paver and that's how we got rid of oilstains.

Re: easiest way to remove oil stains?

Try Cloudy Amonia ..... the cheaper the better .... about $1.69 per bottle ....

Just pour it on & let it sit a bit (DONT breath it in, it will knock your head off ) Then hit it with a broom & wash it off with a hose ..... should work a treat

Kero is another one, attack with a broom then wash off, work's well if the stain's arn't to old.

Or dig it up and lay a new one.

But on the hosing part, don't get caught by the water nazis though. I'm guessing about 3:00 AM might be a good time to do it. :s6:

Prevention is better than cure! Make sure you fit a "No Holden Parking!" sign ASAP.
