Your concrete driveway goes through a lot. Luckily, they are durable, but they are susceptible to oil stains. If your car starts leaking then your driveway will get covered in oil. And with concrete driveways the oil stain stands out – there is no way of covering it. Oil stains become eye soars and it can be frustrating that your once beautiful driveway now has stains.

Now your, saying “what?! kitty litter?” Yes, kitty litter. The problem with oil is that it sinks into the ground. No amount of scrubbing and high pressure water will get it out.
