Everyone has experienced this I am sure.

How do you remove those annoying tire marks on your driveway from tire shine?

Thanks

Easy. Rip out the concrete and go with white rock. Works for me! (my wife says"he thinks he is funny")

You spray them in the street :)
That's probably the best advice.

They sell concrete cleaner that'll remove oily stains from concrete. This is the stuff I use, it works reasonably well even on motor oil:

Spray or pour it onto a tire applicator or sponge.
This. The thing with tire products is a little goes a long way.

Everyone has a product that they like and I prefer one that gives a clean, semi-gloss look that is not at all shiny or gooey. But you can get get good results from even the worst product by putting it on, letting it sit for 5 minutes, and then wiping most of it off.

I like Stoner More Shine Tire Spray myself. Stupid easy to apply, not too shiny, and doesn't fling off.

Hmm,, Less shine in a tire spray would be good. Maybe I could repour my concrete...

I drive onto 4 pieces of cardboard and spray. That way it doesn't mess up the oil spots that my car left when I was parked there.......

Rallye Tyre Shine in a spray can is what we have out here in the Colonies, a tin lasts me forever as I give a light mist coat and spread it evenly all around with a 2" paint brush kept together with the can for the purpose. Done like this, as Joe said - a little goes a long way.

Oil-Away or similar on the driveway, followed by a wash and then just let the sun bleach away what remains. It's usually the silicone content in the product that you can see shining on the concrete and also when it rains it repels the water. A proprietary oil remover should get rid of most of it. A scrub with household detergent afterwards will also help

The first thing I do on any spill is put down kitty litter and lightly grind it into the liquid. Then sweep up. After that I use simple green on most spills.
