Make sure to respond to a spill as soon as you see it. Apply the granules around the perimeter of the spill to prevent it from further spreading, then sprinkle it all over the remaining spill area. Wait for a few minutes until the liquid has been soaked up. You may even sweep the granules back and forth over the spill until all of the liquid has been absorbed. Then use a broom and dustpan to sweep the used granules up for disposal.
