I use cardboard and paper sacks to protect my floors from oil drips while working on the engine. However, when you have an actual spill, these sheets do the job better than paper towels. I roll one of these sheets up and bind with a zip tie and put it in the bilge to catch anything that ends up there. These sheets are much less expensive than the oil absorbent socks designed to be placed in the bilge. And, with the lower price of these sheets you can keep a lot of them around, just in case. They stow nicely under bedding or salon seat cushions, not consuming a lot of locker space.

              These pads, which are cheap, absorb a little oil that may drip from your engine. But they are also useful to spread around the engine on the floor while you are working on the engine. They pick up drips, you can lay your tools on the pads instead of on your beautiful floor. I keep a supply and they last a long time.

                I've been in the fishing industry for 3 years, crewing on over 20 boats. These are a constant on any boat. they will absorb any oily substance you don't want going into the water. Just throw them on top of the spill or in your bildge and they go to work with out alerting anyone who's not actually watching you.

                  I have been using WM oil sheets for as long as I can remember and at my age that maybe getting harder to do -- remember that is. These sheets are the right size to fit underneath my engine (Yanmar 3GM) and in my bilge. They are very absorbent especially for oil an fuel filter changes.
