Five Ways To Clean Garage Floor Stains

Lawn & Garden, Everyday

While spring-cleaning your garage, you might notice a mess of oil, grease and who-knows-what stains on your floor. Get it looking like new again with a few household products: 

Concrete Degreaser

After sweeping your garage, mix concrete degreaser with water according to directions. To clean the whole floor, divide it into sections, scrubbing, soaking and rinsing each with a hose or pressure washer. For stains, apply undiluted degreaser directly to spots, then scrub and rinse.

Laundry Detergent

If you don’t have degreaser on hand, a household detergent like Tide will do. Wet the spot, apply the detergent full-strength and scrub with a bristled deck brush. Let it set, then rinse.


For small rust spots, apply white vinegar to the stain and let it soak for at least five minutes. Scrub well with a stiff brush and rinse. Repeat until the stain is gone.

Oven Cleaner

Spray the stain with oven cleaner, let it soak for 5 to 10 minutes and scrub with a deck brush. Rinse with water and repeat as needed.


For a nasty oil spot, try spraying it with WD-40 then hosing the spot down.
