What will get garlic butter off of the floor? I just spilled 1 gallon of garlic butter on the floor of the pizza place where I work and I have to clean it up but I have no idea how. There's an inch of butter across the floor of the store and I can't even make pizzas right now so please help me quick!

OMG I would use anything to get all up and then use something thats going to cut the grease. Try some vinegar in water that might work. And good luck to you your going to need it.

Oh my! That's a tricky one. I would start throwing down some paper towels all over it to soak up some of it so you can at least make pizzas. Then every chance you get scoop up a handful of the towels and butter and put more towels down in the spot. Once things are actually slow enough to clean it up properly, find something that can be used as a scoop. Scoop up as much as you can and then wash the floor with a degreaser type cleaner. I sure hope this didn't happen on carpeting! If it is, do the same thing to get most of it but I have no idea how to get all of it cleaned up if that's the case!

I would say scrap up as much of it as you could and use a degreaser to cut thru the rest of it. Butter is just a grease and a strong degreaser should be able to cut right thru it, using soap and hot water may make a slippery mess.

Bleach is an excellent degreaser. It should do the trick no problem. It also does wonders for stopping an engine. So save your sugar for the coffee.
