After you dry up as much as you can quickly, any liquid degreaser will help with the residue, as it is oily.

hah when i pulled the engine outa of a car for the first time i spilt so much anti freeze, oil, tranny fluid. the whole garage floor was covered. i put kitty litter all over and when the anit freeze gets into the cat litter make shure u dont walk all over it like i did. it sticks to your shoes like mud:nono:

I use oil dry and work it into the floor with my shoe
I have to keep that stuff up and away from my dogs. I pulled and engine out of my Dads 87 Chevy PU and installed another. Though I drained all the anit-freez out but when the old engine but when it was rolled over on its side on the floor anti-freez ran across the floor to the drain. Boy was I glad the dogs wern't helping me that day!!!

throw your neighbors cat in the garage and let it lick it all up.

Scrub in Castrol Super Clean (or similar cleaner) with a brush and rinse with sprayer :thumbup:

Floor dry works the best, after you get most of it soaked up and you just have a oily mess on the floor, the best and cheapest thing that I have found to work for cleaning the floors with is powdered Spic and Span. Spray the floor down with the hose sprinkle some S and S and scrub with a broom, then rinse off with the hose again. Spic and Span also works awesome for hand cleaner...

I swear by floor dry. At my first job in a garage, that's all the boss would use. I never found a liquid it wouldn't clean up.

Water...For some odd reason floor dry with not soak up water...
