My dad taught me this trick while growing up with him in his garage. If you have oil or anything liquid that you want to get up in a hurry, just follow these easy steps.
First you'll see a big puddle of oil from that leaky rear seal on your cub that needs fixed.
Find yourself a small concrete brick along with a bag of speedy dry or Kitty litter, and sprinkle a handfull onto the spot.
Next, you'll take your brick and grind the speedy dry into the spot and continue this until the spot is gone. It usually only takes less than a minute.
Next, sweep up the dust and either throw it out or you can re-use it till it's completely gone.
It's as easy as that.
