    What kind of fogger are you using? Cracked oil can be a picked up with a good mopping.

    Does the fog smell sweet? If so, its glycol based fog. Being an unknown manufacture, who knows what else is in that fog juice. Any good floor cleaner should be able to take it up. If it is still there, goo-gone or some type of orange clean will clean it up.

    No it does not smell sweet, some of the actors say it smells like candy.

    Candy smells sweet...

    So yeah, that's probably Glycol-based, follow above directions.

    Rubbing Alcohol is very good at breaking down / cleaning up Glycols and glycerins. It's a bit more enviromentally freindly than Goo-gone. "Simple green" should work as well.

    And of course, water works well with glycol cleanup too.

    when we had a Fog Glycol spill. we used vinegar and mopped it up, it killed the smell and didn't mess up the paint.

    One would think it would make an entirely different, slightly worse smell.
