How to Get Stains Out of Your Concrete Driveway

Concrete is the go-to driveway material for most residential or commercial property owners, and for good reason. But through the years, your driveway is bound to get a beating, resulting in inevitable oil and grease stains.

So here are a few tricks of the trade to help you remove tough stains from your concrete driveway!

Oil Stain on Concrete Driveway

Use dish soap on oil

If you’ve got an oil spill—which is common underneath cars—then think of your driveway as one big pan, waiting to be degreased.

The polar and nonpolar properties of dish soap can be used to clean up oil spills on your driveways; simply spread it along the spill, and then use water to rinse it away. Piece of cake!

Engine degreaser works well, too

Engine degreaser is what many car owners use to get oil off an engine, that can build up and cause problems in the long-run.

So why not use it on concrete? Turns out: you can!

Use it the same way as you would dish soap: apply, and rinse. And then maybe consider sealing your driveway for future spillages.

For maximal effect, use a pressure washer

Hotsy pressure washers are great for all surfaces, be it cold or hot water. And concrete driveways are no different—pressure washers will get the grime off, whether it’s oil, dirt, or other spillage that may occur.
