What is the best way to remove oil from an asphalt driveway? I was changing my oil at my gf's parents house and I split some (less then a quart) on the driveway (the is the second time I have changed my own oil so I am still working on it), I immediately soaked up the oil and poured dish soap over the area and rinsed. It looked good so we went out with some friends but when we got home there was a very noticeable stain on the asphalt. I ground some cat litter into the stain and am going to let that sit overnight. Has anyone found a good way to remove oil stains from asphalt?
