Spread oil-dri on it. Then follow up with brake clean and rags.

Oil dry followed with a chemical of your choice and some elbow grease.

Large amounts, I scoop with shovel first and then oil dry.

I did the same thing two weeks ago but it was on dirt.

You and I won't do it again.

Kitty Litter and Muriatic Acid, be careful with the acid- dilute 1 part acid to 4 parts water

Wipe up what you can. Put some dawn dish soap on the oil, add some water and go over it a few times with a broom. Wipe up and you are good to go.

put mineral spirits on the floor and then floor dry, Let it sit for a long while to dry and it will pull oil up into floordry clay,

brake cleaner - soak it. poor on the oil dry, and scrub it in with a small piece of board (2x4). It will go away fast, then sweep it up

Ahhhh......don't worry about it , it's a ' real man stain ' . Real men get greasy , dirty and do real work. Symbol of pride , check off one mark on your ' man card '

Ever get covered in sawdust working or cutting wood ?
Sawdust = man glitter

Oil dri for 24 hours, but the secret is to grind in the oil dri. Don't just toss some on, grind it in to the oil with your boot. Then sweep it up and scrub with dawn dish soap, or better yet some sort of solvent.
