What are the differences between absorbent pads, pillows, and socks?

Use absorbent pads to clean up low-volume spills. TRADESAFE Universal Pad (15” x 19”) can absorb up to 20 ounces per pad. They are made to be easily tearable so that you can quickly respond to a spill incident.

If you want to contain large spills that are dangerously spreading fast, use absorbent socks. With them, you can create a dike where liquid cannot penetrate so that you will have less area to clean up. Some homeowners use them on window sills and gaps under the door to keep rainwater or melted snow out of their houses.

Absorbent pillows are best for quickly soaking up a lot of liquid spills in a single area. Made with industry-grade and high-quality synthetic materials, TRADESAFE Absorbent Pillows (18” x 18”) can absorb up to 70 times their weight in liquids.
