Tide detergent, believe it or not. First use a ice chopper/scraper to cut
the heavy stuff off, then wet the floor sprinkle, on the Tide, rub it with a
floor broom and flush with water.

Just got done with cleaning two garage spaces (sold vehicles). The
oil leaks from 25 years of parking was severe.
Used TSP - poor result - failed even to cut the grease.
A heavy duty degreaser and cleaner - not much better.
Laundry detergent - no worse than above.
87 octane gasoline - absolutely the best - but also extremely risky.
Used about 1-2 cups at a time (total used about 1 gal) with some
water and heavy brushing. Did a bunch of rinsing to get rid of fumes.
Gas did the best job.
Prior to this I did a google and found nothing. Is there an available
cleaner that will dissolve dryed oil 1/8 in thick in places - other
than gasoline and the associated extreme risk in an attached garage?
Just in case I need it in another 25 years <grin>.
