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.

      Use of this product in drip pans under engines, keeps any oil or fuel drips from spilling into bilge. Also great as early warning of and possible oil leaks that could mean trouble. Easy to change and dispose of properly. Helps keep our boating environment clean.

          Used this mat in the bilge of my boat during an oil change.
          Clean up was easy, all that I had to do was pick up the mat and throw it away after the oil change.
          It absorbed the oil that spilled from the filter and my bilge was clean.

                In the boats bilge, but also for my old car on the plastic plate under the engine. It catches the old, and does not mind getting wet.

                        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.
