7 DIY Ways to Remove Oil Stains from Your Asphalt Driveway

If you've got an oil stain on your driveway, wipe up the excess oil with an absorbent cloth and act quickly using the common household items below to make sure that it doesn't become a permanent eye sore or a headache to clean up later.

Dawn dishwashing soap, cat litter, a can of Coke, baking soda, and WD-40 spray are just some of the common household items that can help break down or absorb the oil before it permanently settles into the asphalt.

Take note that these techniques work best for fresh oil stains. You can still try using these techniques for old oil stains to make them less noticeable, but making the spot go away may take multiple applications or commercial stain removers.
