Cleaning Up Auto Rustproofing Residue From Asphalt - The EATOILS™ Way!

This is what can happen when someone gets their car undercoated or rustproofed and the car sits for awhile in front of your home.  This happened to me a short while ago and it certainly didn't look too appealing to walk down the street and see this mess at my front door - I'm certainly glad that my 'friend' didn't park in my driveway and do this to me on my property!  I knew that EATOILS™ BT200™ would clean up the oily mess if it was on concrete, but I wasn't sure that it would work as well on asphalt.  I knew that it would degrade hydrocarbon oils with its 'non-stop cleaning action' - a natural microbial action that deep cleans the worst stains on concrete, asphalt, and even soil - but I wasn't sure how well it would do on rustproofing fluid.  I also knew that if I left it untreated the marks would be there as an embarassment for me for years to come.  I was very concerned about the look of the area, so I took some of our EATOILS™ BT200™ and sprayed it (in a 5:1 mixture) on the asphalt to see if it would clean up for me.  Once the area was wet with water and the product, I brushed it in with a street broom and let it dry.  After the first application the stain was lighter, but the marks were all still there.  Over the next few days I monitored the product's progress and I watched how the marks continued to fade.  After about 10 days, I noticed that the stains had faded about 30% so I re-applied the product at 5:1 and brushed it in again.  After another week it had faded approximately 70% so I re-applied it on day 20, brushed it in and waited for it to fade the rest of the way.  By the end of the month it was virtually completely gone (see the second picture for the way it looked).
After seeing this work on rustproofing fluid we have introduced the product to professional rustproofing clients and they are now using the product in their operations for spill control and clean-up.  If you know of anyone who is working with oil products who is dealing with spills this is the one product that they should be using for spill response and clean-up.  EATOILS™ BT200™ is a certified green cleaning and bioremediating product that safely and effectively addresses the problems caused by hydrocarbon spills.
