WD-40 is a multipurpose solvent with at least 2,000 listed uses. Since WD-40 has the ability to remove grease, you can use it on driveways that have oil stains. Although WD-40 is a chemical, it won't damage the surface of the driveway in any way. In addition to the WD-40, you will need a scrub brush and a few other items.
Soak up as much of the oil as you can with paper towels. Toss the paper towels in the trash.
Spray the entire oil stain with WD-40. Saturate the area. Let it sit for five minutes and wipe it up with an old rag.
Drip grease-fighting dish soap on any stain that remains. Pour a little hot water over the dish soap and scrub with a wire brush.
Flush the area clean with hot boiling water.
Repeat if necessary.
- You can also sprinkle kitty litter on the ground to absorb the spilt oil.
- Don't get the oil and WD-40 on your hands. Wear plastic or latex gloves while cleaning up the stain.
