what's a driveway paver?
just go to smart & final they'll have this liquid you can pour on the concrete, and it'll dry to a powder and turn dark and absorb the motor oil out.
i hope I guessed the right question.
Epoxy paint. Once oil seeps into the pores in those pavers, it's there to stay. I managed to lighten the stain using some Dawn and soaking them in nearly boiling water.
Replace the couple of affected pavers?
Not when it's half of the driveway.
What color are the pavers?
browninsh black now.
I used Dawn dishwasher detergent an a broom
If the color is close to concrete, just grab some TSP (basically a detergent) and grind it in. That should lift some of the oil. Follow up with scrubbing in dry portland cement and that should bring the color back in line to some degree. If they are colored, you'll need to experiment with dry portland and powder pigment used for colored concrete to get it right.
Edit: pressure wash the TSP off and wait until the pavers are dry before grinding in the dry portland.
Go autozone or maybe any parts store. they will have purple stuff that works well. Also concreate cleaner by the same people just stronger.
Pics of said driveway?
I've been thinking of redoing my driveway with pavers this fall...
Thanks for the link OP. Great info on that site.
:music:burn baby burn:music:
try something like this
Coat the whole driveway with oil, then wash it off with soap. Even if you can't get the oil out of the pavers, the whole thing will be consistant.
If you don't have enough used oil to make this work, then....
Laundry detergent, the powdered kind. Throw it on dry, it will soak up oil if still wet. Then get a stiff brissled broom, wet the soap, and scrub baby scrub.
Muriatic acid works well, Be careful.
Some suggestions in this thread.
take pavers out... turn over and replace......
So simpole I couldnt fall down myself......
home depot and other shops have cleaner solutions for just that. never used it myself though, i leave a lot of cardboard under car when changing oil
