Clean the driveway

I figured Defender owners would have plenty of expertise.

What have you found to be the best way to clean oil and rust stains off of a concrete driveway?

Thanks in advance.
Michael

Try putting carpet down on your driveway to protect it. Not just when you truck is there, but all the time. Carpet. Rain, shine, snow, anything. Sweep your carpet sometimes, when its dry, vacuum it. Park your Lotus on it.

TSP works well, but after epoxy or get an oil resistant rubber flooring
to park over.

Muratic acid and tide laundry soap will remove almost any stain but it will lighten your cement so you might want to spead it across the whole driveway after you remove the stains. Oh yea and dont breath the fumes when you see the yellow smoke

I have an epoxy garage, but if you are talking concrete: pour and restore. You put it down, let it dry on the oil spot and sweep it up. This has taken just about every kind of oil/grease stain out of concrete for me.
