    I spilt a bit of 2 stroke mower engine mix on the kitchen floor yesterday & it's got in the grout and stinks:faint:, does anyone have any suggestions how to get rid of the smell? I've tried scrubbing in washing up liquid , & also a bit of white spirit to try and break down the oil but still whiffs, suggestions welcome.

    What about oil absorbent granules to try and draw the petrol/oil out of the grout? Maybe have to leave on over night to work. I'm sure it will lessen over time anyway. Not sure about the nagging tho .......

    We use spillsorb (the absorbant granules) at work but they never pick up 100% of any spillages.
