How to clean up a greasy, stained con­crete floor

The Telegram (St. John’s) - Home Buyers' Guide - - NEWS -

If your con­crete drive­way, car­port or garage floor looks like an Indy 500 pit stop, we have a clean­ing recipe for you. First, soak up the grease with some cat lit­ter. Cover the area with a gen­er­ous amount and grind it in with the soles of your shoes. Sweep it up and prop­erly dis­pose of the soiled ma­te­rial. Next, sat­u­rate the area with a cola bev­er­age, work­ing it into the con­crete with a stiff bris­tle broom — but not al­low­ing it to dry.

Once the cola has stopped fizzing, flush the area with clean fresh wa­ter. Whiten the gray stain that re­mains with a so­lu­tion of one cup of pow­dered laun­dry de­ter­gent and one cup of liq­uid chlo­rine bleach in one gal­lon of very hot wa­ter. Fin­ish the job with a fi­nal rinse.
