    <font color=blue> How do I clean the floor of my garage and what can I put on it to help keep it clean ? I'd like to get rid of all the oil stains and such that has gotten on there over the years.

    We spilled some amway clothes washing detergent on a 70 year old basement floor and it was very clean after mopping what couldnt be easily picked up. Worth a try anyway. Sealing definately helps.

    No sealer... If oil is spilled on it I'll wipe it up,and if it leaves a spot...pour on some more chlorine. We are gonna eventually seal,but haven't had the time to get everything out of the garage../forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    We used to use some sort of acid. It'd eat everything but the concrete. Comes in a glass bottle. Wish I could be more helpfull.

    I agree about the bleach. It will bleach anything in a second, except for the load of laundry that I accually need it to bleach. lol It should work good on your floor.

    Tomorrow I will ask what was used to seal the shop floor, whatever it is it some good stuff.
    The floor in the shop was sanded smooth and sealed.
    Makes it real nice to sweep up and clean up spills.
    The bay can be a total disaster after a job and 5 minutes later it is spotless and ready for the next rig.
    Of course there are mops and buckets everywhere to clean up as ya go.
    With the floors being smooth any oil or water has to be mopped up right away.
