    My garage floor is in good shape but it has some really greasy spots. I ground speedy dry into real good but only got some of it out. I tried muriatic acid and it sort of helped. Anyone got any better suggestions?

    I've tried Gas and oven cleaner with mixed results. I've seen that flor cover stuff at the Home Depo. I've been thinking about giving that a try.

    I've also just left floor dry on it for a few weeks. Soemtimes that works pretty well.

    Laundry soap works pretty good, just sprinkle some on the floor and scrub then wash off.

    that is some powerful stuff...I used it once and it literally SMOKED when it is the concrete (careful, dangerous fumes!) But, it made the 'crete more 'white' than the surrounding area...and dunno why, but a year later it turned rust brown. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif one extreme to another, and back again....
