Well, I told someone my story about the oil slick a while back and they told me a great way to clean it up and I figured I need to document it for future reference. If you have a cat, then get out your cat litter (the fresh, clean stuff) and pour it over the spill. It sucks up the oil and makes it much easier to clean up. These people who shared this trick with me run a restaurant and so I am sure they have experienced a few oil slicks in their time. Along the same lines, someone told me that oatmeal works in a similar way and if you don’t have a cat, then that might be a bit more practical to have around the house. Now I have a good use for all the oatmeal in my food storage!
