What is the secret to using Oil Stain Banisher?
The secret to using Oil Stain Banisher successfully is two-fold.
    • Apply frequently
    • Patiently wait

We know the second one, “patiently wait”, is the most challenging in our busy world where everything seems so urgent.  But patience will be rewarded because the product will effectively dissolve the oil and remove it from the environment.

What are the steps to follow to apply Oil Stain Banisher?

  1. Sweep the stained area free from dirt and debris.
  2. Shake the powder from the container to generally cover the stained area.
  3. Take a broom and sweep the powder back and forth until the stain is entirely covered.
  4. Mist the area lightly with water – do not cause the product to run by misting too much.
  5. Repeat the treatment every 1-2 weeks or as the stain re-appears through the concrete.
  6. Do not over apply so there is loose powder, not in contact with the cement otherwise it will be wasted.
  7. DO NOT wash the stain to “peak” to see if it’s still there. Just apply on top of the stain and existing white residue that appears will the removal process takes place.
