What country is that stuff from?

How about something from Home Depot or Lowes?

Use muriatic acid but be very careful, I almost killed myself once with the fumes from that stuff when I decided to do the garage floor after a 12 pack.

For the past day or so, Democrats are showing that Republicans are the best thing to clean the floor with.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address

I second the Muriatic acid. But dilute it. My High School chemistry evades me just now - was it acid to water or water to acid ???

From personal experience - moved into a place where the garage was used as some white trash's motor shop...

Get a scrub brush from Home Depot - the kind you can screw onto the end of a push broom.

Dump the entire undiluted bottle of Castrol Superclean (the purple stuff). spread it and let it sit for 10 minutes. Scrub the floor - it really doesn't take much effort and spray out with water. It will be back to new. You can get Superclean from any store like walmart.

You can also use it on old parts (which is what it's actually designed for). It made the original parts from my old 67 Camaro look new.

The acid will leave marks on its own.
Coca Cola will not.
