Oil drips from automotive leaks can leave very ugly blotches on our driveways. This mars our home’s curb appeal and slowly damages the structural veracity of the pavement. Most driveways are prone to oil seeping deeper and deeper as they are made of porous materials such as asphalt and concrete. The oil continues penetrating and this becomes harder and harder to remove oil stains from driveway.


It is very important to clean up the oil spots immediately you spot them to ease the clean-up task. There are special driveway cleaning products available but it is also important to know how to use household materials. Removing and cleaning driveway stains is not that difficult, but each kind of stain entails some idiosyncrasies that you need to know to remove the stain completely. 

One way to remove the oil stain is by pouring fresh kitty litter over that spot immediately before the spill is dries up. Using a broom, stir the litter a few minutes later to expose it to the remaining oil. Wait for the litter to soak up that spill and the sweep the litter to a dustpan.

You can also press an old newspaper into the spill in order to blot up any oil. After the newspaper has stopped absorbing the oil, place it together with the oily kitty litter in an airtight food storage box. Saturate the litter and newspaper completely by filling the box with enough water then close and discard them. 

Removing fresh oil stains on concrete is easy but older stains are a challenge. For fresh stains, simply pour some water and liquid dish oil and scrub using a regular scrub brush. You should wet down the immediate concrete too. This prevents the oil released during the clean up from causing another stain. Add enough water to make a strong lather of soap while scrubbing the stain vigorously. The soap emulsifies the oil lifting it out of the surface. However, is you simply rinse, the spill will pollute your compound. The usual scrub brush is recommended as a wire brush will scratch and erode the concrete finish making a permanent scar.

In some instances, muriatic acid has been used to lift the oil stains. Other products are clean water and oil repellents with siloxane and silane ingredients. Whatever cleaning product you choose to remove oil stains from driveway always apply more of it and repeat the process just in case the spot remains.

Interactive Content for Learning

Gone are the days when teaching equated to a classroom of students listening to the teacher talk. The famed Russian philosopher and educator Vygotsky said that the mind emerges through interaction with the environment. Current technology affords us many ways to create learning environments that help students visualize information, play with it, and create their own meaning. 
At nGinE designs, we challenge ourselves to go beyond the eye-catching graphics and cool animations to create interactive content with a focus on the learning outcome.
