HOW TO:

Clean Concrete Floors with Oil Eater® Cleaner Degreaser

Uncoated concrete is a very porous substance. Cleaning oil and dirt from such a surface is a multi step process that is best done when the spill is fresh. Older spills that have been exposed to sunlight for a period of time are subject to oxidation and may not be completely removed.
Step 1) Spray the entire area to be cleaned with water.
Step 2) Pour Oil Eater® Cleaner Degreaser onto the surface concentrating the product over the area of the spill or stain.
Step 3) Using a synthetic bristle scrub brush agitate the area of the  spill or stain starting at the outer edge and cleaning towards  the center. For larger areas, use the push broom to agitate  the solution. Use caution when walking over wet areas, the  surface may be slippery!
Step 4) Allow the solution to soak for five minutes. Do Not Allow  Solution To Dry! If an area is beginning to dry, spray it with  additional water.
Setp 5) Rinse the entire area with a strong stream of water.
It may be necessary to repeat the cleaning process to clean away soils that were saturated in the concrete. Allow a minimum of 24 hours for the concrete to dry before repeating the process.
