    How to remove tire shine from garage floor?

    So yesterday I was detailing a car and I used some of my Meguiar's Endurance gel (which was full). This morning I wake up to find myself almost killing myself slipping in this grape smelling mess on my garage floor. Somehow it had a crack in the bottom of it and it leaked all over the floor. And believe me, it's EVERYWHERE. Whenever I use the hose to rinse it the water just beads up and does nothing. How do I get rid of this mess?

    APC with a scrub brush. I have sprayed tire dressing on tires and excess has gotten on the floor. And of course I almost bust my butt walking past the car.

    I've done this a lot... I got really mad once and didn't realize how flimsy a bottle of tire shine was! Anyways, I used a hose and sprayed outwards and some APC and elbow grease. Could always use an old carpet scrubber - I almost tried that but decided against it lol

    Dont waste your time scrubbing concrete with APC. Get some Simple Green, Purple Power, or any strong degreaser.

    I got a really really strong degreaser (contains sodium hydroxide) and it killed the beading on contact. Thanks for the advice!
