Oils can be tough to deal with and clean up. With these oil-only absorbents, however, the job can be much easier. These absorbents are useful to have on-hand to clean up spilled motor oil, brake fluid, cooking oil, and more.

What are oil absorbents?
Is an absorbent enough to clean up an oil spill?
This depends on the amount of oil spilled. Typically, an absorbent made of synthetic materials can absorb up to about 70 times its weight in liquid. Absorbents can contain spills of a manageable size, but larger spills will need the involvement of other cleanup methods.

How do you clean up an oil spill on land?
Oil-only absorbents can be very helpful when an oil spill occurs on land. Absorbent socks, for example, can prevent the spill from spreading further, and absorbent pads and pillows can be placed directly on the spill itself to make removing the liquid easier.
However, while absorbents can be helpful, other interventions may be necessary depending on the amount of liquid spilled.
