Default how to clean concrete?

need some suggested methods and chemicals you use to get rid of oil, grease, antifreeze, and trans fluid from concrete garage/driveway's. my garage and driveway are a mess and no matter how careful i try to be i always spill something. problem is the house isn't owned so it will need to be completely cleaned whenever we move out in the future.

I've seen some chemical cleaner at AutoZone last night. $10 for a gallon, claimed to clean up concrete to like new condition...no idea if it works...

pour mineral spirits on it, sweep it into the floor, cover it with floor dry... Sweep the floordry up when it's dry and reuse it.

That's what we do.

Power washer with a semi aggressive tip on it, takes some time but it will all wash out. A kerosene fired power washer would work as well. You can rent them. Take oil dry and crush it with your feet and work it into the concrete, this helps to absorb the oil but will not permantley remove the stain.
