    Contact cleaner, I also use good old dish soap and a scrub brush.
    also try some TSP (Trisodiumphosphate) from Canadian Tire. ($2.99)

    SHIT MAN!!! hahaha. i did the same thing except inside the garage. i was stupid enough to open the oil cap before i undid the drain plug. the oil overflowed the oil holding container i got from canadian tire. so half the oil got on the garage floor. i gotta get rid of the freaking stain before anyone see's it . i got lots of coke. hahaha. going to crappy tire to buy a pressure washer and some chemicals tomorrow.
