I have heard kitty litter will help get all the surface oil up. Not certain where to do after that except maybe some TSP.

Yeah kitty litter or sand to absorb a majory of the oil. Then make a trip to Home Depot or Lowe’s (or another similar store) and ask the guys who work there what the best stuff is. They’re pretty helpful. The quicker you do it, the better, before it gets more absorbed and becomes harder to get out.

There’s this stuff at Home Depot, or some other hardware stores that will get most oil stains up. I forgot the name of it, but it’s like a concentrate that you can add to water, or if need be use straight. The sales associates should be able to steer you in the right direction.
