  • Use mineral spirits and soak it up with speedy dry or kitty litter. Brush in the mineral spirits then work in the litter you can wash it down when you are done but don’t wash down the mineral sprites that stuff gets slick quick.

  • Besides a FILTHY exterior, the inside of this car was an absolute DISASTER and is going to knock your socks off! 🤣 You know that moldy food smell I talked about in the Chrysler T&C and Kia Sedona videos? Well, add this one to the list...😷

  • This might be gross for some. But for me it was funny. I lived at a from for 4 years. About everyone chews. But me. So every morning as I brush my teeth I spit out the window I was seen by the staff. And they blame me for the dark spots all over the side walk. But only under my window was almost pure white.

  • Lads. This legit just saved my life. I bought my dream car over the covid period and drove it to my parents house. When it got there it literally emptied its transmission fluid all over their drive. Sod's law I guess and maybe I should have checked more thoroughly before buying it😅. Can't resist a good V8 fam. You know how it is. The laundry detergent came in clutch as everyone has it already. A good half an hour's worth of scrubbing and pressure washing later and BAM. Good as new. Tide Pods are still saving the day in 2020. TL:DR- Donut media's pro tip saved my ass from gettin beat by my mum for spilling transmission fluid all over my parent's driveway. Big love from the UK 👍🏾

  • I know it is marketed as a no water cleaner, but I feel like the Backrete would have worked better if it had been just slightly damp. The oil is soaked in but the powder is just going to sit on top of the concrete and not soak into the pores, because powder cannot soak. A little water would have gone into the pores and allowed the bacteria in the cleaner to have penetrated into the concrete.

  • MURIATIC ACID - $5.00 A GALLON - IT'S MADE TO CLEAN CONCRETE - ACID - PERIOD - END OF STORY - STOP SCREWING AROUND - DILUTE ONE GALLON OF MURIATIC ACID WITH 3 GALLONS OF WATER IN A 5 GALLON BUCKET - WATER FIRST - THEN THE ACID - WEAR GLOVES - EYE PROTECTION - YOUR PPE. HAVE ANOTHER BUCKET WITH A COUPLE OF THEM SMALL BOXES OF $1.00 BAKING SODA - MIXED WITH 4 1/2 GALLONS OF WATER - THIS IS TO NEUTRALIZE THE ACID WHEN YOU FINISH USING A SHOP ROOM (BRISTLE) TO SPREAD IT AROUND THE ENTIRE DRIVEWAY - DON'T DO SECTIONS - IT'LL LOOK LIKE SPOTTED SH*T - EVEN IF YOU GET ANOTHER GALLON OF MURIATIC ACID - IT'S STILL CHEAPER AND WORKS BETTER THAN ANY OF THE TRIED METHODS IN THE VIDEO. - THIS IS ALL IF YOU'RE TOO STUPID TO "NOT" USE A POWER WASHER WITH A CONCRETE CLEANER ATTACHMENT

  • Just looked up the BacKrete and found that you used the wrong one. The one you used was intended to be poured on spills not to remove stains. You should have used the BacKrete Multi-Purpose Degreaser which has this description: "It will quickly penetrate, emulsify and dissolve vegetable oils, animal fats, petroleum greases and other oils. BacKrete Multi Purpose Degreaser will suspend the oil along with the soil they hold and float them away. This is a safe, environmentally friendly, excellent degreaser. Contains no butyl or any other solvent, yet out cleans other degreasers."

  • i use tide but like no where near as much scrubbing. Just use a lot, scrub once, rinse with a garden hose and call it a day

    Jerrod PJerrod PMese fa
  • Try the newer Tide 10X Heavy Duty, that stuff is far more powerful specially for grease. We used it on set in stains and it got them out perfectly. I really don't think you need to do all that scrubbing either, it just needs to soak really, it's not like you can scrub below the surface. Another go to option for me on a driveway is Purple Power, that works very well.

  • Diluted laundry detergent plus a scrub brush and then frequent rinse and sucks with a Shop-Vac will do wonders for getting gunk out of upholstery or auto carpet. Then just dump a bunch of hot water on it and suck it out so your car doesn't smell like a laundry room.

  • The cheapest, most effective, effortless option is coating the concrete with a clear smooth coat, it prevents the leak from getting into the concrete, it's way easier to clean, you have to do it once every couple decades if you take care of it, and looks awesome and professional.
