Hydaulic Fluid on Asphalt

I’m headed out the door soon, but I quickly want to ask what you would suggest to get a roughly 10’ x 2’ area of hydrualic fluid out of asphalt. It’s been there for about a week at the most.
Thank you.

I used to be a mechanic and used clay floor granules (used in repair shops to soak up floor spills) but they take 2 or 3 days to work well on asphalt ,and dont let rain get on it or it all goes mushy

another method i used was on my hands and knees, scrub with a very soapy water mix then mop it all up with a bedsheet or duvet . tip- dont use your best bedsheet !

Rice hulls absorb a lot too…

Whoops! I forgot to mention that the driver who did this absorbed what he could quickly. I’m just inquiring about the stain it left.

BTW, thanks for the goodies, Dave Freeborn

Anything else?

Eatsoils BT 200 lots of good reviews on it.

Dan, I had a hydraulic line burst on my truck a couple weeks ago. I bought some cheap kitty litter and let it soak a couple of days. After cleaning up the kitty litter I pressure washed the stain and added a few drops of dawn. It seemed to clean up nice. Lots of bubbles down my driveway. It spilled on concrete though.

Did you divert the flow from storm sewers?

Why yes I did. It found it’s way to my grass at the bottom of the driveway. It’s been two weeks and the grass is still green. Darn 4 leaf clovers keep popping up though.

Thanks for the thoughts everyone. It turns out that there is no water source for me hook into. I have a water tank I bought but no pump yet. SO, I passed this onto another local company.

Mild detergent, 15 to 20 minutes dwell time, medium pressure (1500 psi) hot rinse.
