Have to clean up some grease that a resident spilled at a app complex. It is a long line going from the 3rd floor down the stairs and out to the parking lot. The stairs are concrete and so is the walk way. My question is will Sunbright's RIP IT take it out. I know that RIP IT it is a caustic so I'm thinking it will work. thanks guys

Take it out...............not unless it's very fresh.Since you are asking here I'll assume it sitting on the surface seeping in further.
It should however make the stain much less noticable.
Concrete being porous like hard sponge you can not effectively remove deeply set in oil and grease stains with chemicals.

yeah it has been sitting for 2 days. They had another guy come out before me and pressure wash it with a cold water unit. I'll just inform them that I will not be able to get it up completely.Thanks for your help.

When it comes to removing oil/grease stains I always put "attempt to remove oil and or grease stains from concrete surfaces" in my proposals before the customer signs it. This way you are covered on it.

Smart :)
I did the job this morning. I was able to remove the stain completely, save for a few steps. Thank you for your input!

Yeah.. deck stripper.
Rando - I used the Rip It. Nicole actually said it might not work so well in certain cases due to the fact that it has no surfectants. So it may not always be a good choice, but if its the only thing you've got on hand it's a good back up.
