How do you clean gasoline off concrete?


Gasoline stains can be tricky to remove from concrete. If the stain is still wet, pour clumping, clay based cat litter on the stain. After the litter absorbs the liquid, you will need powdered laundry detergent and add a little bit of water to it to make it a paste-like substance. Paint the paste on the stain and allow it to sit for 10-24 hours. After it sits, use a scrub brush and warm water to scrub the stain, then rinse it thoroughly with water.
