so during my oil change, i accidentally knocked over a bottle and I didn't realize it, so a lot of oil spilled out. What's the best way to go about in removing the super slickiness on the floor now? :dontknow: Thanks in advance.

Goggle "oil absobents" "oil clean up"

You'll find stuff that has a kitty litter look/consistency.

Also Dawn dish liquid soap works very well.

If any of it get's in a navigable waterway and I find out I can and will fine you. $$$$

btw, if it can chip concrete, do you think they would use it for cats to shit in? :bsflag:
All I know is I put some on my duplex garage and cleaned it up about 3 weeks later and there were small flakes of concrete coming up with it. :dontknow: Same stuff happened on my driveway with ice melt.

your theory is definitely questionable... lol

just because the two had similar effects on concrete, doesn't mean they contain the same chemicals

Now that we're chasing this rabbit... you're right about the clay. Most "clumping" cat litters are made up of at least 60% sodium bentonite, which is a type of soft clay usually found in a powder form. However, also found in small quantities is NaCl (sodium chloride) and CaCl (calcium chloride). It's a very small ammount, but it's in most mainstream brands. Ice melt uses those two ingredients plus KaCl and MgCl for their formulas.

A special thanks to Google for all this worthless information :thumbsup:

Did cats shit in it first? You're supposed to use it clean. :)

got a source for that info? i found something that says it's used sometimes as a dessicant, but it's definitely nowhere near as high in concentration as it is in ice melter.
