So, my landlord was over today to do some inspections on the house, and my neighbor happened to be nice enough to spill oil in a perfect line just behind my garage. I did not know about this until my landlord said something. Supposedly, he will call my neighbor and talk to him.



Now: How do I clean this up? I don't wish to just let it soak up.

That "perfect line" thing sounds just a bit wonky to me.



If you have some cat litter on hand, spread that around. It's quite good for picking up oil spills. There might be some stuff you can pick up that will remove spills, too but I'm not completely sure of that.

Kitty litter works well. They also sell materials designed to absorb oil at local autoparts stores. They should take the oil soaked material for recycling. If you happen to have some sawdust around, it also works well.

The only thing I've found to work is paint thinner (ew) and citrus cleaners.
