Motor Oil on Concrete

How do I remove motor oil from my concrete porch? My son left a bag of motor oil on the porch, not realizing that the bag was leaking, and the spot is about 12 by 12 inches.

My son removed oil spots from his garage floor with spray oven cleaner!

Try cat litter or TSP.

I've used kitty-litter, the granulated type. Cover the motor oil with a generous amount of the litter and leave overnight. The next day just sweep away. You may need to repeat the process.

Kitty Litter works great but if you want it out right away just rub the litter in the cement with your foot. This is what i do, cause i don't like oil on my drive way.

I used a product called Eximo concrete cleaner - I just sweeped it on, and within a week the entire stain was gone!

P.S. The product claims to be a "GREEN" alternative to other methods out there!
