If you use your driveway or asphalt pavement for vehicle or equipment repair, keep a close eye out for oil stains. Oil stains are tricky to remove the longer they sit so be sure to address them ASAP. DIY solutions to remove oil stains include hardware store degreaser or even kitty litter or sawdust. We also recommend that you take extra precautions when using diesel fuel. Diesel can degrade asphalt materials quickly. In fact, many asphalt pavers have been known to use diesel to clean their equipment because it works so well to dissolve asphalt residue. Diesel fuel is especially harmful to the binders in asphalt mix which can cause holes if left unaddressed. If you have to use diesel, read up on proper storage and handling!
