Hi. I'm Rachel Yatuzis and I'm going to show you how to clean up small gasoline spills. It may be on concrete or the driveway. First of all you want to make sure that the area is well ventilated. Gas has really toxic, dangerous fumes. You don't want to be breathing that in. Actually before that even, you want to make sure there's no open flames or sparks around for obvious reasons. You don't want anything catching on fire. So just make sure the area is nice and safe. You just want to soak up the gas using kitty litter. If you don't have kitty litter, corn starch works well or flour. Like all purpose flour that you would bake with, it works well also. You just want to cover the spill with something that's absorbent that will be easy to sweep up. Because after you let that sit for about 20 minutes, you're going to grab your broom and a dust pan and sweep it up and disposes of it. Make sure; must likely you want to throw this away outside because it is going to have such a strong odor. And you want to throw it away where there's not going to be any chance of someone throwing something in the same trash can that maybe, will have a spark or something, burning embers or anything like that. You just want to make sure to keep this spill away from flames and away from fire. And that is it. I'm Rachel Yatuzis and that is how you clean up a small gasoline spill.
