My dad used to oil the boards w/ drain oil; only used them a few times, but it seems to have worked. Can you wrap them w/ visqueen?

Oil the forms with either commercial form release or 5 gal diesel to 1 quart motor oil, but the diesel/oil will stain the concrete.

Form release, as noted above, or just power wash after stripping the forms.
