I don't know about you but my garage floor gets so dirty during the winter. The dried dirt and crud from the roads just covers it.
During the summer, I use the hose to rinse it all out but, during the winter, I don't want a skating rink in my garage. I've used this method to clean my garage floors during the winter for years and thought I would share it with you.
How do I do it- I use snow!!!! Think of a snowcone. A snowcone just sucks up that syrup and that's what snow does to all the dirt and dirty water on the garage floor. Plus snow crystals are slightly abrasive so it scrubs off that dried on dirt as you sweep it all out the door.
Here's the before! Obviously my garage floor needs to be repainted this spring but you can see how the dried on dirt is all over where the car parks.
Here's how to do it:First: Sprinkle fresh clean snow all over the floor with a shovel making sure to cover any dirty spots. Second: Let it sit for 5-10 mins.
Third: Using a wide broom, sweep the snow out of the garage. Usually the dried dirt comes right up with the snow, but occasionally you might have to move the snow back and forth over a stubborn spot to get it up.
The snow just sucks up the dirt and any water on the floor. It's like magic!!!
All the dirt is gone! Boy, do I ever need to paint this floor!
Here you can see how the snow absorbed the dirt and muck?!! Sweep all the dirty snow into a pile and shovel it off to the side so it doesn't get tracked back into the garage. You now have a clean garage floor in minutes!
