Q:Greg, I really enjoy your columns on collector cars. I have a 1958 Chevy Delray, and it drips oil on my garage floor.
What do you recommend to remove oil stains from concrete floors? Andy K., Michigan.
A: Andy, there are so many products out there that will remove oil stains from the floor, and most are readily available at your local auto store, that I hate to sound like a commercial.
However, you asked so I'll answer. I use a product called Oil Eater, produced by KAFKO International Limited, which is formulated to eliminate the need for multiple cleaning solutions.
It can also be used on tools, engines, tools, concrete, asphalt and walls. It also removes stains from floor mats and upholstery.
This unique, non-flammable cleaner is formulated to eliminate the need for solvent or acid-based cleaners. It penetrates rapidly, rinses off easily and leaves no residues.
It is water-based, fresh-scented, biodegradable and contains no acids, abrasives or petroleum solvents and is perfectly safe on skin. Oil Eater is available in a 32-oz. spray bottle, one-gallon and five-gallon containers at leading auto parts retailers.
For info visit or call 1-800-528-0334. It's a good product and I use it on more than just my garage floor. It's cheap, too, only about $4.99 for a 32-oz bottle.
