I just use Tide.
The powder, not the liquid.

Spread it over the stain and then water just enough to get it damp.
The trick it the wait to let it work in.
It is best idea is to let it sit overnight.
Then broom it up and rinse.

We used to use a slaughter house cleaner when I worked at the Poughkeepsie Yacht Club. It came in a 5 gallon cardboard drum. If I remember correctly (this was better than 50 years ago) it was mixed at 1/2 cup to two gallons of water. Hot water made it clean better. The boss used it once to get tree sap off of his car, it almost took the paint off. I think he used double strength and hot water. It took #6 oil off of boats real easy.

My favorite method. Use the good oil dry made of Diotimachios (sp?) earth , spread lightly and walk over it a few dozen times. Or get chubby checker on the radio and do the twist. Also the kids riding bikes and trikes will work it in pretty good too.

I had equally poor results with oil dry. I did a test section, Ground it in with a board let it sit a couple days. It "looked" clean after sweeping but once the clay dust was really cleaned off the oil was still there.

Simple green/powered detergent worked ok, but requires a couple applications to get it reasonably clean and was labor intensive for the square footage that needs to be done.

I had pretty good luck with an enzyme cleaner but it takes a couple days and I cant tie up the whole shop floor right now.
The plan currently is to grind the whole floor in the original section, as the finish is pretty poor anyway, see what it looks like and treat the oil that was below the grind.

At least you won't tip sideways and fall off the throne. When you get older you could always add grab handles on both walls, kind of like those power chairs to help you get up.
