Driveways not only bear the brunt of vehicles, foot traffic, and weather from all seasons, but plenty of accidental spills too. Although driveway stains are often common and unavoidable, there’s no questioning how big of an eye sore they are. Ridding your driveway of all its stains can be a tough job without help, but the reward will be great.
Whether you’ve spilled fruit punch or have an oil leak, any type of wet stain must first be dried as well as possible. In most cases this will involve saturating the area with an absorbent, grease fighting powder such as laundry detergent, dishwashing detergent, or even cat litter. After letting the powder absorb the moisture for several hours you can sweep up, dispose of it, and move on to the next step.
Now that the stain is dry you can begin washing and scrubbing it. Wet the surface and generously cover it with baking soda, oven cleaner, or dishwashing detergent. With a metal or hard-bristled brush begin scrubbing the stain repeatedly in circular motions using very hot water. Continue this method until the stain is nearly gone.
Last but not least, in order to properly and truly achieve a clean, beautiful, and stain free driveway, wrap up the job with a power wash. A power wash is extra tough on stains and is powerful enough to blast away dangerous bacteria, algae, mold, mildew and much more! An earth-friendly bonus is that the fast acting cleaning agents used to power wash are safe to use around plants and pets alike
