Solvent for transmission fluid
 
I spilled a good deal of transmission fluid in the carport some time ago.

I tried to blast it off but it came out streaky and still pretty grimy.

Is there a solvent I can use to get it off before pressure washing again?

Fast orange hand cleaner does pretty well on getting things like that out of material.

That's going to take a lot of fast orange.

Is it the pumice that helps?

You can try powdered laundry detergent and a little water, it works great on my driveway.

This is what I use as well.

I'll give it a try.

Do I rub it on dry or do I make a slurry of it?

Add a little bit of water and I use a push broom to scrub miine but it all depends on how big the area is.

Pretty dang big.

I'd say 4'x4'.

Try about 60/40 water/soap and scrub a dub dub. Let us know how it works.

I'll give it a try.

I'm pretty sure I'm losing the deposit if I can't get it off.
