What You Will Need:
EXIMO®, broom/push broom, or cleaning brush


Using an outdoor broom, sweep away any loose debris. Ensure pavement is dry.

To Clean
1- Sprinkle a small amount of EXIMO directly onto the oil stain(s).  Use just enough to thinly cover the surface area of the stain, avoiding excess.

2- Using a push broom or handheld cleaning brush, brush EXIMO into the surface of the concrete.  Spread until stain appears translucent.  Do not rinse off.

3- Repeat this process weekly for 4-6 weeks until the stain is completely removed.
