Sometimes, you have an accident. Either you drop your bottle of olive oil while taking it to your barbeque, or your engine suddenly develops an oil leak… all over your pristine paving slabs. So, what can you do?
One of the best ways to get rid of excess oil on paving slabs is to use cement powder to absorb the oil. If you don’t have any cement powder, try some kitty litter. Both product are absorbent. All you do is crush the kitty litter (which is usually bentonite clay) into a fine powder, sprinkle it over the oil spill, scrub the area well and sweep it all up. Some people also recommend using biological washing powder to remove oil.
One thing to note: don’t go overboard with the cleaning or you’ll have a conspicuous clean patch on your paving where the oil used to be!
