What are oil absorbents?

Oil-only absorbents are absorbents that are made specifically for absorbing oil-based liquids. These absorbents can come in the form of absorbent pads, pillows, and socks. They’re also made of hydrophobic and oleophilic materials, which means that they won’t be able to work on water-based liquids, but will be able to soak up oil-based liquids.
