DIY: Removing Grease Stains In Your Garage

Grease spots in your garage are bound to happen. Cars, motorcycles, lawn mowers, snow blowers, etc. all increase the likelihood of such areas. But, have no fear, there are ways to remove these blemishes on your concrete floors. Here’s a DIY way to remove that bothersome grease!

Things You’ll Need:
  • Cat Litter
  • Broom & Dustpan
  • Paper Towels (or a rag that you don’t mind getting grease on)
  • Powdered Laundry Detergent
  • Scrub Brush
  • Hot Water


  1. Pour cat litter over the grease stain. Apply a liberal amount to soak up the grease. Repeat this step a few times to ensure that you’ve removed the largest amount of grease possible.
  2. Sweep up the cat litter and remove any left over oil with your paper towels or rag.
  3. Use a little water to create a paste like substance with the powdered detergent. Apply a generous amount of the paste all over the grease spot. Scrub the area thoroughly with your scrub brush.
  4. Use the bucket (or whatever you may choose) of hot water to rinse the area.
  5. Repeat steps 3 & 4 if necessary.

A Traditional Look. A Trendy Garage Door.

Traditional and Trendy with Academy Overhead Door.

Wood doors are out of stock but not out of style! There’s something about the traditional look of a wood garage door on the home. It’s irreplaceable. Unfortunately as Garage Doors improve, wood material has decreased in efficiency when compared to steel. A steel door’s durability and life-long-lasting feature has made quite the influence on the Garage Door Industry. Frankly, Wood isn’t used anymore.

Academy Overhead Door’s Amarr brand Garage Doors have stopped using wood altogether. The good news is, we haven’t lost that classic and traditional ‘Wood’ look either. Amarr builds it’s doors in many styles and colors that look like wood! Unless you physically pound the door with your knuckles, you can’t tell it’s steel.

Steel is efficient, yes. But that’s no excuse to keep if from being classy.
