Get your self a bag of cheap kitty litter and pour on the stains let sit until all of the excess oil is removed, sweep up. Now if this did not remove caked on grease and oil go to your local hardware store and buy some concrete cleaner and use that. Both the Kitty Litter and concrete cleaner are pretty cheap.

Dawn or Cokie 04/30/2004
Pour 1 large bottle of Dawn dish washing liquid on stains and evenly spread out with old broom or large wooden stick. Let stand at least 12 hours. Spray off with hose.

A friend used 3 bottles of Coke and poured them evenly over the spills. Wait for about 30 minutes and hose off. Both have worked well for us in the past. Good Luck

Try Kitty litter, pour on oil, and let sit for afew hours, it should soak up the oil..then just sweep it away.

My husband and I used to be truck drivers in the Army and we would get grease on our uniforms all of the time. We were not allowed to wear stained uniforms so we had to get the stains out. WE would wash our uniforms in Pine-Sol and it cut the grease very well. Simple Green works well too, but I hate the smell of that. ha ha But for your garage floor, I don't think the concrete will complain about the smell. ha ha

When you put the clay type kitty litter on the oil grind it into the concrete with a block of wood.
