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.

    Comments about Oil-Absorbent Sheets:

    These pads work exactly as advertised! They absorb petroleum products while not absorbing water, which make them very useful cleaning up oil/fuel in the bilge. These are "required equipment" for anyone that does not want oil in the environment.

        Comments about Oil-Absorbent Sheets:

        I use the Oil-absorbent sheets & Boom on my boat every Spring, summer and Fall. They keep the bilge clean and catch any oil/fuel i happen to spill during maintenance etc.
        They work great if oil or fuel is found floating on the water surface near my boat from neighboring boats.
        A Must-have item.

                    The product was use to absorb oil mixed with water from the bilge. It absorbed the oil quickly and it does not drip when picked up.

                      Place under engine, in bilge. It absorbs any stray oil or diesel, not water. Keep the environment clean!
