  • hot top or hottop
  • asphalt
  • chipseal

Watch this video to see how I’d do it if I came to your home. I’m cleaning oil from concrete, but the process is the same for blacktop, hot top, asphalt, tar and chip, or chipseal.

Hi, I’m Tim Carter co-founder of Stain Solver, and I want to show you how to remove oil stains from concrete. Let’s get started.

Mix two tablespoons of Stain Solver with 16 ounces of warm or hot water. Stir for one minute, until all of the Stain Solver powder dissolves. Apply the solution to dry concrete for the best results. Work in the shade, in the cool part of the day.

Allow the solution to work for at least one hour. Add more solution to ensure that oil spot is wet with a solution. After one hour, add Dawn liquid dish soap to the area and scrub to create a lather. Add more Stain Solver solution and scrub a little more. After another hour, scrub several times, rinse and allowed to dry.

Oil and concrete is absolutely in the top 10 toughest stains for Stain Solver to tackle. Here’s why. The oil can soak into the dense matrix of the concrete. It takes a while to get it back out.

Stain Solver is an excellent degreaser. It really, really works well, and of course that’s what oil is. It’s a grease.

Here’s what you need to know. After it has worked for a while, you might even try to broadcast some of the Stain Solver powder onto the solution. Scrub it in. The key is to let the solution work for a long time. Keep it wet with a solution. It may take an hour or two or three. Go ahead scrub a lot. Rinse it. Let it dry.

See if the stain is lighter. If it is, you’re making progress. It may take two or three attempts to get the stain out, and believe me, if you have a fresh oil stain, attack it immediately! The fresher the oil is, the easier it is to get out.

It’s that simple. If you have more questions, go to the FAQ page at stainsolver.com. If you want to talk to us on the phone, it’s easy to do. Our phone number is at the bottom of every single page of stainsolver.com.
