Yes, if it is asphalt it will because of the oil in it.
Plain clay cat litter will absorb the oil....use a liberal amount & let it "soak." To get the remants of the stain, use a brick to grind the cat litter into the driveway.
To get an oil stain off a canvas bag, first cover the stain with cornstarch or talcum powder to draw out some oil. After leaving the powder on for a few hours, brush it off and then rub Dawn dish detergent and hot water into the stain.
One way to remove oil stays off cement driveway is by pressure washing it. You however have to use the correct pressure washing attachment to avoid damage, so it is best to use a pressure washer surface cleaner from bestcargurus, not will it only remove the stain faster but it will also ensure that you wont damage your driveway
We would need to know what caused the stain and what kind of surface it's on. The procedure to clean an oil stain off of concrete is going to be much different than cleaning a red wine stain off of furniture.
The oil will gradually float to the top and you may be able to draw it off carefully.
Believe it or not, Head and Shoulders shampoo will remove an oil stain from your driveway.. if that's what you meant.
Cat litter is great for that. After the majority of the oil soaks up into the litter you scoop that up, then put a little more on the stain that will still be there. Grind the new dry kitty litter into the oil stain with your shoe until it looks like dust, then sweep that up. You may have to do that several times to get it all the way up. After all that, (I assume the driveway is cement) you can get it a little damp and put some laundry soap on it and scrub the spot. Eventually it will get most if not all of the oil up. Have fun!
vegetable oil works perfect
maybe try cleaning it or not spill the oil spill clean with lighter fluid
Onto your driveway.
No, oil needs to penetrate the surface and the latex stain will inhibit that penetration.
Put baby power on the stain, wait 10 mins., then brush off the power. repeat as necessary.
Try Oileaters. It is a wonderful product.I have used it on my driveway concrete with wonderful results..no more oil stains! I purchased it at Costco or Sam's Club, but I have seen it also at Auto Part stores and supermarkets. If that does not get the stain out completely, try Oil Gone Easy S-200, a new bioremediation product that literally eats the oil. I got good results.
Before you try a non greaser, put some kitty litter on it for a time to see if it absorbs it. I tried a new product called Oil Gone Easy S-200. It got rid of the stain in about a week. I liked it because I didn't have to clean anything up.
All of it. Otherwise the latex stain will seal the surface of the wood and the oil will not be able to penetrate into the wood. Sanding won't remove all of the residue. You'll want to use a paint stripper/stain remover too.
Last resort, if the oil and tar won't come off with regular cleaning brush, you can use a pressure washer surface cleaner from bestcargurus along with your pressure washer, that will surely do the job.
Not really. Stain needs to absorb in to a wooden surface. If the surface is covered with anything it will reject the oil that carries that stain colour. It will dry against the surface but because its not fully adhered it will come off
coca cola and sand. worked for me. also coke is good for cleaning of your battery terminals if they're dirty and nasty :-)
No, you can't. The water based stain will not soak in and may bubble up on the oil based stain.
Oil based stain generally penetrates the wood a little deeper
Yes, you can put an oil-based stain over a previous water-based stain on a deck. There will be problems doing the opposite as the water will not dry on the oil.
Yes! Providing that the stain in question is "oil based"! If the stain is LATEX then no. Oil based products will mix, but oil and water won't! Water being the carrying agent of latex!
It's an oil-based stain normally.
You get it and then get it off
