To remove chemical spills from your asphalt lot, follow these simple DIY tips and get incredible results.
Soap and water - Use liquid soap and water to wash away the stain. It’s better to use soap and water after noticing the oil stain. You may have to use other cleaning methods if the oil stain has been there for a significant time.
Cat litter - Mop up any extra oil, pour a generous amount of cat litter or sawdust all over the stain, and let it sit for a while. Most people recommend allowing the litter to sit for 24 hours on larger spills. But for more minor spills, let it sit for 10-15 minutes.
Baking soda - Baking soda is a common household item to clean stains. It’s practical for sponging up oil. Sprinkle your baking soda into the stain and use a stiff brush to remove the stain away.
Let it cover the oil for at least 30 minutes. Rinse the stain and see if it’s gone away.
