    Default Re: oil spill stain on concrete.

    The longer an oil stail is allowed to sit the harder it is to remove...TSP (Trisodium Phosphate) works very well...

    Many brands are still being made. "household' is one of them. 100% pure lye crystal drain opener.

    You can also get the blue tinted lye that the meth druggies don't like to use.. also powdered.


    I buy lye from the hardware store.. most sell it in 1# bottles. Ace and tre value carry it I know.

    I make soap, and lye is the alkali i use. 1 pound makes about 4 batches of soap for me. laundry Bleach is a strong alkali as well as straight pool chlorine
