      Long storry...

      Me being stupid for starters, so turns out i was bored at walmart during lunch break and desided to throw a full bottle of used oil into the air and wouldnt you know it lands on the edge of my open door, making the interior a war zone. So far I've got all tyhe oil up that i can, i still need to pull the door panels off to get all the oil out of them and get some out of the carpet. and if i can out of the handle bar things.

      Any questions feel free to ask, and no sorry i have no evidence i didn't want pictures at the time, and hey the oil made me actually clean my car. but i need help still getting some of it out.

      wasnt that long... sucks but sounds hilarious at the same time. Kinda wish i was there. So why were you tossing a bottle of oil? just that bored? and curious again why was your door open if you were outside tossing a bottle around? again damn that sucks but ahahahahahahaha kinda funny too. I mean Im sure you would laugh if this happened to one of us. well.... i would hope you do. Good luck getting all the oil out.

      Not to sound like a douchebag hippie tree-hugger (I'm really not) but intentionally spilling used oil all over the ground is horribly polluting and I frankly find it disgusting. I say this is an excellent example of karma and you got what you deserved.

      i wasn't meaning to spill it, and at the time i thought it was tea so karma isn't the issue, but i understand your way of thinking

      dawn or dish washing liquid should help remove oil, since they are made to cut cooking oil, etc down.

      Go to west marine. they sell a powered product that absorbs oil. Im sure you can find it in any autoparts store, but the one at west marine seems to work best. Its called PRP soy. you just shake it onto the oil, press it in, then vaccum up the powder. you may need to repeat this several times, Hope this helps.
