ive always just used cat litter or oil dry stuff. just lay it out let it soak up, then walk over it and grind it into the cement. pulls the stains right out.

Regular old dawn or engine degreaser gets out most of my shop stains. I am still looking for the best dip stain remover. I gotta quit spitting on the floor.

I soak the whole floor with simple green and a light coat of water and then i sprinkle lowe's 99cent play sand on the ground and scrub it with a push broom. works great for stains...

Super Unleaded. We keep it in a dish soap bottle at the gas station I part time at. Pour it over the oil stain, let it sit for awhile, then wipe it up. Regular and mid-grade both leave a film. Gotta use the Super.

I want to see what people recommend for me. I work on a piece of 30 year old cement that was never sealed. needless to say, once oil touches the surface, it goes deep. Lately I have been tossing down kittly liter as soon as I have a spiil (drip etc.) then when i get done working, I sweep it up, then spray down super clean, simple green, cement cleaner from home depot, etc, scrub it in with a wire pool brush, and pressure wash it off. This takes away about 50% of the stain. I have tried muric acid, but it just eats up the concrete.

Any ideas?

Whats that stuff at walmart called? It may be worth a try.
