    Interesting Oil Wipe Towel

    https://youtu.be/J8UPJ0igQF8


    I know paper towels soak up oil but I have not seen a specific designed for it. Anyways take a look at this video and you’ll see a cheap way for soaking it up if your bilge gets funky

    FWIW, I found “Oil Pigs” to work better for me. https://www.newpig.com/absorbent-mats/c/100
    I bought a 75’ roll of it that finally ran out after three years and immediately bought a new one. I keep a strip of them under the engines and keep a couple folded in the keel.

      Driz, this appears to be the same absorbants found at most marine fueling stations to clean minor diesel spills. I do use these under both of my engines to 1. Catch any oil, 2 Since they’re white any new oil leak is quickly indentified.

        these have been around for years and can be purchased at almost any autoparts store or anywhere they sell oil.... oil absorbent pads, sometimes also called oil diapers.

        take 2 or 3 of them and roll them loosely into a small tube, and secure it with string and throw it in the bilge.... any oil drips will be absorbed into the pad rather than being spread around the bilge

        a person can buy the rolled pads at the marine store for the same purpose (throwing in the bilge), but at 15-25 dollars for 2 or 3 rolled pads, ( https://www.newpig.com/pig-water-hog...yABEgLyfvD_BwE ) if you were to buy a whole package (100 pcs.) for 30-35 dollars, you could roll your own "pigs" at a cost of about a dollar.... which makes you feel better about changing them out more often...
