    I've cleaned my driveway many times with powdered detergent and gas with great results on oil spill from a motor swap, although Im sure its very illegal to wash it down the street!

    there is some products that people who own/manage shopping centers use, I'll see if i can find out what it is called.

    Never ever use Gas as a cleaning detergent. Using gas is a very good way to get serious burns.

    I just clicked the link and got an 404 error. Not sure what happened. Try again.
    Tips for Self Storage Managers
    If it does not work try a search for "Tips for Self Storage Manager" here @ SST

    We use the Zep floor sealers but didn't care much for the degreasers. Were currently using "Gunk" degreeser from the local auto supply store and protland cement. The cement will get rid of most of the stains.

    I have always been a fan of Gumout Carb Cleaner for taking care of the oil stains or other tough to remove stains. That and a grill scrubber with a removable pad. Never tried mixing a little portland in with it the make it look a little nicer when done. That is something I think I will try out.
