If you let the power steering fluid sit on your driveway for a long period of time, the more difficult it will be to remove.

  1. 1

    Pour the degreasing solution into the pressure washer's mixing tank. Read the directions on the degreasing solution bottle for the amount needed to pour into the pressure washer.

  2. 2

    Start the pressure washer and let the pressure build for 10 minutes. Pour a capfull of the degreasing solution onto the affected area. Let the degreasing solution sit on the stain while the pressure washer warms up.

  3. 3

    Spray the driveway on the affected area using a side to side motion.

  4. 4

    Let the driveway dry for two to three hours. Repeat the above steps if the stain is still there.

Tips and warnings

  • You can purchase the pressure washer and degreaser from any home improvement centre or hardware store. If you have a hot water connection, use that in the pressure washer. Hot water is always better when removing stains.
