    If it's still wet,you could try sawdust, if not, possibly wd40
    I had that once, just short of a full tin while i was driving, it leaked out the bottom of the side loading door and i could see the trail of it behind me, never did manage to get it off the sills

    I think that would be too strong it will probably dissolve it it hasn’t been laid well it’s all pitted and crumbly and way too many chippings in it . I’ll be ok , will post the outcome tomorrow,it may help another brother

    Best thing to do is have a few beers after a day like that. I had one on a drive. Lifted the top part of a Ardex dpm off and the lid from the hardener beneath came with it all over the driveway. Spent hours scrubbing it with all sorts, carpets, wipes, white spirit, washing it down. Chuck a bit of mud on it lol. Luckily it was a pretty old drive and the customer never mentioned it.

    My bitch managed to have a tub of 2428 and f60 fall over in the back doors and glue them shut. The side door lock was already playing up so couldn't get in vack of van. Garage had to smash the handle and lock out the side to get in van. Managed to open one back door but other is glued shut permanently. Also had to cut the latch on bottom of other door just so it opens again. Van goes back in octoberj

    Ive had the same many times. Always managed to get it cleaned up enough to use the doors though.
    Is it a lease van ?
