Best product to remove oil stains

After 6 years I have decided to paint or either stain my concrete floor in the big barn, still undecided on which one. I have over the years spilled oil and had drips from the slobber tube before I added the catch bottle.Wondering what others have used to remove these stubborn stains?

After we gave away our Suncruiser, I was faced with years of an oil stain on the concrete pad. Much to my delight, an aerosol product called Oil Vanish did the job. I followed the directions and it took 2 or 3 tries, but you would never know that there was an oil stain there, even along the cracks in the concrete.

Thanks. I'll give it a try

Simple Green. Spray it on, brush it in and spray off with water. Have used it on my driveways for years.
I use it and a toothbrush to get all kinds of oil and grease, including salad dressing, out of my clothes before washing with Tide.

Iíve been impressed with the Blue Wolf line of products. Their general degreaser concentrated cleaner works great.

Thanks everyone for the tips and advice. I've been busy putting on new barn doors last couple of days. Next week I plan on trying some of the product mentioned here.

Pour N Resore oil stain remover ($16 on Amazon)

Here is the amazon link....

https://www.amazon.com/EDGEWATER-IND...s%2C205&sr=8-6


I have used many times and works like a charm and is super easy!

1. Pour it on the stain a little thick to where it goes about an inch past the stain.
2. Let it dry... it turns chalk like. (Sometimes I leave it overnight till the next day)
3. Wash off the chalky stuff with a hose and broom
4. Wait till surface is completely dry... and repeat as many times as needed till gone.

It has removed EVERY oil stain I have ever poured it on, and I always have a bottle on hand.

Good Luck!
