Before you know it, your clean garage floor or driveway can quickly become a magnet for oil spills and stains. The problem could require the assistance of Oil Eater Cleaner/Degreaser. According to the manufacturer, it’s a non-toxic, biodegradable formula that breaks down oil and grease deposits, allowing them to be rinsed away without leaving a residue. Oil Eater is marketed as water-based, non-flammable and containing no petroleum-based solvents or acids. This means it can be safely deployed on almost any surface, including carpets, floor mats and upholstery. Oil Eater can even be used on clothing. Purchase a 32-ounce spray-bottle at many auto-parts and department stores, or at for about $16.
