How retro it seems now when I used to carry a pail of kitty litter in my motorhome. Especially when you consider that I don’t own a cat. But it was what I used to clean up spills from changing my oil, from spilled engine coolant, or any other difficult to clean up spill.
Then the SpillFix people asked me to try out their SpillFix Organic Absorbent that they had just made available in consumer sized packaging of 3.3 quarts rather than the 20-pound bag used by mechanic shops and industrial plants. The beauty of the new, smaller consumer packaging is that it will take up less space in your locker.
SpillFix absorbs much more than an equal amount of kitty litter, commonly used by RVers for cleaning up spills, and cleans right down to the floor leaving a dry, non-slippery surface. It can be reused until it turns black, and since it is non-hazardous, can be disposed of in the trash – and is good for Mother Earth also.
I purposely spilled some coolant in my driveway (I know, asking for trouble) but the SpillFix did the job – because I followed the directions. I swept it up and went to find the spot of the spill a couple days later and it was indistinguishable from the rest of the driveway. (Whew! I didn’t have to explain a new stain to my wife.)
