OIL SPILL KIT INFO

Before dealing with any spill or leak, make sure that the vehicle is secure and that all passengers are safe.

First, catch any dripping liquid in a plastic container or bag. Use a cup to scoop up pools of liquid. If need be, keep the spill from spreading by using special absorbent socks, or create a dam of dirt around the spill.

Next, use kitty litter or absorbent socks to soak up the spill.  Use anything available in an emergency, like paper towels, rags, diapers, or a t-shirt.  Soak up what you can, and then wipe down rocks with absorbent pads. Bio-Response is a natural solution that biodegrades the remaining oil stain on rocks and in cracks.  Reach them at (530)344-4518 or biocleanse.net.

Proper clean up means that the spilled liquid and contaminated soils are removed for proper disposal at a hazardous waste site.  Call your local authorities if you need assistance.  All material and soil should be collected in plastic bags; double-bag, if possible. Place the bags on the rubber floor mats in case there's a leak. Gear oil, in particular, leaves a nasty smell in your carpet that is very difficult to remove.  Make sure the lid is secure on your container(s). You don't want the fluids and kitty litter spilling all over the inside of your vehicle.

You can purchase spill kits at places like Kragen Auto Parts, oildri.net and newpig.com.
 
You can make your own:
  • Ziploc freezer bags, water jug, etc. -any large container you can seal and use as a catch pan
  • Large trash bags
  • Latex/nitrile gloves
  • Kitty litter /Absorbent Socks/Diapers
  • Blue paper towels/universal absorbent pads/Bio-Response
  • Shovel
  • (Optional – orange cleaner/degreaser for hands and vehicle)
