Ok.. CHOMP PULL IT OUT testing goin on.
Poured on a spot that should be noticable in camera.
Gotta wait 4-12 hours for it to dry.

Pours and looks exactly like whiteout.

You dont get a lot for $15 bucks... this spot took half a bottle...

Water baking powder and a coke. Brush it in with some elbow grease. Power wash off.

Still not completely dry...as evident by my genius dogs footprint.
Temps might effect dry times.

Never tried chomp. Will remember that one (maybe) but laquer thinner, rub, apply again, rub, apply again, rub and it will lighten. Laquer thinner for a few seconds before pressure wash will get the top off. Texas sun will help a little over a year or so. Otherwise Jack hammer.

You have no hair on your satchel if you cant get that oil out of that redwood expansion joint...with the PFC Shuffle....no matter how multilayered it might be.

Good luck. I recommend some Chubby Checker...real loud...real late.

Sorry Homey...my dance card is full. Ive got my own shuffle. Thanks for the invite.

It rained last night..so i dont know how much that effected results...
But ..they are noticable...
I am interested to see what another treatment that allows it to dry completely can do.

Looks like the Chomp just lightened the stains. Better go get you some Tide, if you wanna just let the product sit and do all the work. You could let it sit till the next rain washes it away...

Yup.. going to test it again on dryer days..give it a full chance. . It never dried completely.. but not sure that would make much more of a difference.

Its going to have to etch somewhat to take it off and Muratic acid is one of the milder acids. We've used it before with some diluting with water and it works well.

It looks like it is mortar or cement. It does look better when you cover the stain. As long as it doesn't rain it looks to work great. Here is a reply from the manufacturer to a poor review. . .

From SealGreen:
SealGreen Gary-Out works by penetrating the concrete using microscopic enzymes to eat the oil. This is a very slow process that may take weeks or months to clean the oil. We do not claim in any form that the oil stain will be removed with a few days. We recommend reapplying the Gray-Out if it is washed away during the cleaning process. Please remember that they are many types of car oils from basic car oil to synthetics. The more refine the car oil the longer it will take to clean.

I wonder how "refine" the OP's oil is?

I second Tide or oxyclean and a stiff brush. Scrub off then reapply on wet concrete and leave it until it washes away.

Still watching this thread.

I'll try the tide, but I think I'm going to try CLR, too. My stains are inside the garage. I put kitty litter on them asap and kept it on for several days and it helped but the stain is still there.

It worked for them and it was a nasty oil stain.


I’m thinking something like this has merit. You have to find a way to lift the oil soaked into the concrete pours to the surface.

I know a guy that knows a guy that can get me some of the pure Oxy (peroxide powder) in Oxyclean. Not sure how I could get some to you, but it works.
At my old job we used Comet on oil stains on our loading dock for all types of oil that we loaded on ships and barges.

Pressure washer didnt touch it ..
I’ve used my Honda pressure washer with a concrete cleaning attachment from Home Depot I think and some mean green. It works wonders just spray the mean green on first let it soak and hit it with the pressure washer. The attachment is something like the pic below but it’s black, same concept though.

Zep purple degreaser from hd, took paint off metal I beams, it’s heavy duty equipment degreaser. I bet it would work better than anything if it was going to work. Worth a shot
