Are TRADESAFE Absorbent Pillows hydrophobic or hydrophilic?

It depends on the type of absorbent pillow you are going to use. Our universal absorbent pillow is hydrophilic so it will absorb hydrocarbon-based, water-based, and a range of other liquid types. On the other hand, our oil-only pillow is hydrophobic, so it is best for absorbing up oil that has been spilled on a body of water.
