Removing Danish Oil spills [duplicate]


Removing excess Danish oil after applying it to wood is straightforward, if a little messy. Regarding Danish oil spills, you should attend to them quickly. How you dispose of old Danish oil is partly dependent on your local authority. However, there are specialised companies who will come and remove it from your property, for a fee. In this case, ensure you choose a company with a well-established reputation for ethical disposal.


Danish oil is used to treat timber, such as wooden floors and worktops. According to Anglo Building Products Ltd., you can remove excess Danish oil that has been freshly applied to a wooden floor with a squeegee and cloths. Gather the excess unabsorbed Danish oil together by dragging the rubber blade of the squeegee over the floor. Form a pool of the oil to facilitate more efficient removal. Wipe up the oil with dry, lint-free cloths.


Danish oil enters the porous surface of the wood and deposits a resin coating....

Q. I have an old dresser that I have stripped the varnish off of and found motor oil had been spilled on it. How do I get the oil stain out as it has penetrated deeply into the wood. Also on the bottom side of the dresser is water stains, how do I remove these?

Thank You,

A. Hi,

We had a similar problem with a motor oil stain on an old table my wife wanted to refinish. Unfortunately the oil stain was on a part where the original finish was almost totally gone and it soaked into the bare wood.

We found an answer on the "Oxi-Clean" web site and it worked for us. Make a strong solution of OxiClean [linked by editor to product info at Amazon] (2 scoops to 16 oz of water) and apply just enough of the solution to the stain to cover it thoroughly....

Learn how to apply oil and wax wood finishes.

Many woodworkers turn to oil and wax finishes for their first attempt at finishing, and for good reason. They are easy to apply, give almost foolproof results, require no applicators beyond a rag and leave wood looking both rich and natural. Turners especially love them because they adapt perfectly to finishing wood still turning on the lathe.

If there is one Achilles’ heel these popular finishes suffer from, it is their lack of durability. You would probably not choose a simple oil or wax finish for a bar top or kitchen table that will be assaulted with scratches, hot coffeepots or strong solvents, but they are perfect for bookcases, jewelry boxes, turnings, picture frames, blanket chests and a host of similar objects. While a wax finish can go on any type of wood, avoid putting oil (or Danish oil) on aromatic cedar or any of the dalbergia woods (rosewood, cocobolo, tulipwood). These woods contain an antioxidant that will...

Here's a method for cleaning unsightly oil stains from your driveway. Start by soaking the oil stain with mineral spirits. Mineral spirits can be found in the paint section of your hardware sore. Let it sit for 3 minutes and then scrub it with a stiff bristled brush. After scrubbing, lay some newspaper on top of the stain and let it dry. Then finish by washing the stain with the following solution: 1 cup laundry detergent, 1 cup bleach, and 1 gallon water.

Cleaning Oil From Your Driveway

I work at a gas station, where we have terrible oil stains. We use a product called eximo on the concrete and it gets rid of the stain with very little effort. I've taken some home to test in my garage, and it works there too! :) It's also environmentally/people safe - which is a big deal for my work? (03/28/2007)

If your car leaks fluids or you spill some while filling up your vehicle, lawn mower or snow blower, your driveway might end up with a stain or two. Fluids such as oil, transmission fluid and gasoline can leave a stain on paved driveways and garage floors. Because these liquids are all different, cleaning techniques vary slightly from fluid to fluid and surface to surface.

Whether the stain is new or old, there are some basic steps to help remove marks left by leaked fluids from a paved driveway or an uncoated concrete garage floor.


Oil can leave a dark stain on your pavement. To remove oil from your driveway, first determine whether the fluid is wet or dry, says Good Housekeeping. If the spill is new, start by covering the stain with cat litter, cornstarch, baking soda or cornmeal, which will help absorb the extra moisture. Once the pavement is dry, or if the stain was already dry, says Good Housekeeping, wet the stain with water and scrub with a...

The Red Butte Creek oil spill was caused by a rupture in a medium crude oil pipeline that occurred on June 11 and 12 2010. The Chevron Pipeline (CPL) is 10 inches in diameter and runs from western Colorado to a Chevron Corporation oil refinery near Salt Lake City Utah.[1] A half inch diameter hole in the pipeline was caused by an electrical arc from high voltage power lines to a metal fence post buried a few inches above the pipeline.

Red Butte Creek is an urban stream that is heavily controlled by dams and reservoirs. It flows through natural channels, urban parks (including the lake in Liberty Park), and buried culverts, emptying into the Jordan River.[2] Oil began spewing from the pipeline sometime around 10 pm local time that Friday in the vicinity of Red Butte Garden in Salt Lake City. Several hours after detection of pressure reduction in the line, the broken pipe was discovered flowing 50 to 60 US gallons (190 to 230 l; 42 to 50 imp gal) of oil per minute into the Red...

It is a wonderful feeling to get emails and letters from readers. They are a signal that folks actually read my columns. This column about removing oil stains from concrete generated a significant amount of traffic. People wanted to share tips and tricks they have used to also get rid of oil stains. It is really encouraging to get positive mail like this from people like you!

Service Stations

The next time you stop to get gasoline for your car look down at the concrete under your car. You may see an oil stain or two. In fact, you will probably see all sorts of oil. From time to time, people filling up with gas will also add oil to their cars. Some people have a better aim then others, and those that don't, leave a mess. Most filling stations have a supply of oil cleanup compound on hand. This is a product that is very similar to kitty litter. You broadcast it over the fresh oil spill and it absorbs it. If you then brush it around, it also cleanses the concrete...

A spill of diesel or kerosene from your oil tank can be dangerous for the water environment, human health and the wider environment. This page provides tips on what to do if an oil spill occurs.

Reasons an oil tank might leak

Oil tanks can leak for a variety of reasons; the most common are:

failures of the tank body damage to equipment on the tank such as sight gauges damage to or wear-and-tear of fuel feed lines failure of components at the boiler end of the system, such as flexible hoses.

Metal tanks can rust through, often at their bases. Plastic tanks can split due to inherent defect or age/wear-and-tear and spills can occur when oil is delivered.

Who is responsible?

Anyone who uses, stores, fills, transports or manufactures hazardous substances, such as oils, has a responsibility to ensure the substance is contained and used in a way that won’t result in a release to the environment. They also have a responsibility to clean-up any spills...
