    What do you guys use to keep your garage floor clean from grease etc while cleaning your bikes?
    So far, I've been using old moving box cardboard...Just trying to get some other ideas for possible alternatives.

    Thanks folks!

    Best protection IMO is to epoxy the floor if you want to repel chemicals. I highly recommend the rustoleum brand at home depot. If you are only interested in protecting the area under your bike Lowes or Home Depot have vinyl clear mats that can be cut to the appropriate length for your application. Cost ~$20 bucks. I have both and they work great!

    I'm using a retired area rug.....9x5'. Don't care if it gets dirty, greasy, wet. Soft enough that small parts that drop, don't bounce all over the place.

    Plus I can vacuum it when it gets really dirty.
