I found cat litter, followed by straight Simple Green and power washing to work best.

Always try diatomaceous earth first.

generally available at pool stores. I have had tremendous results with it...

Best stuff I have ever used to remove oil stains from concrete.

I've always used The Works Toilet Bowl Cleaner. Let it sizzle for 15 minutes and wash away with the hose

wet down with a 5 gallon bucket of hot water from the bathtub. spread dawn soap everywhere, scrub the heck out of it. looks pretty good afterwards.

Well you certainly have a lot of suggestions here. I would lean to the non-chemical (heat & pressure) treatments first just because that stuff has to run off to somewhere.

Good luck.
