(HUGE) Grease Stain on Trex Decking

I recently dumped the grease tray under the BBQ on my beautiful nearly new Trex decking. It splattered and stained a large area. i bought some (totally Bogus) cleaner called Corte Clean composite deck cleaner- supposed to clean EVERYTHING. Didn't touch the stains. I even tried pouring almost boiling water first, then spotted with the cleaner- to no avail. Any ideas? (Other than an area rug to cover?)

De-greaser from a restaurant supply house might work----I think I've seen it at The Home Depot,also.

Lay old rags over the stain and soak the rags---this will allow the product to work without drying out.

Go get some dry Tide detergant and use that with enough warm water to make sudzy. It is what restaurants use to clean their floors with in the kitchen area.

Removing grease

Hi Cyg2011,

Rinse the stain with hot water as soon as possible. Use Pour-N-Restore (www.pour-n-restore.com) as directed for any remaining stain (test in a small area first as this may remove some of the colorant from the decking surface).

Feel free to contact me with any questions.
