Oil on Driveway

Ann Faircloth has spilled oil on her driveway that she just sealed in Southampton, UK.

Let her tell you about how her cleaning effort failed:

"I had my my drive sealed, but we spilt oil on it. It doesn't look any better, since we cleaned it.

Can we put another coat of sealant on top of the old one?"

Here's my answer to Ann:

Ann, you can put another coat of sealer on, but I don't think that's the right thing to do.

If the oil is still fresh, I'm pretty certain you can get it off with some liquid dish soap and water.

I would not add new sealer to cover up the oil because most sealer instructions say to never apply the sealer over oil.

If you have Dawn dish soap in the UK, get it.

Then watch this video I taped showing you how to clean oil off a driveway.
