    Recovery gear (ish) - Spill kit

    I see the requirement for a spill kit on trips. What is suggested? Has anyone a list of a DIY they would share? Or, is there a commercial version that is common among the gitout-ers?

    I have attempted to search the forums, but am admittedly bad at these forum formats.

    Thanks in advance.

    Apologies if this is in the wrong area.

    This is the kit I carry https://oilsponge.com/product/spill-kit/. But I am sure any kit will do. There's even a bunch of write ups on DIY spill kit.

    off the top of my head what I have
    Spill Mat- oil absorbent pad - I think you can get them at O Rielly or Autozone - sometimes call pink pig matt
    Kitty Litter: a coffee can full (or a gallon size zip lock (double bagged))
    Garbage bags to put the stuff in
    couple pairs of latex gloves
    Roll of paper towels
    small shovel to dig up any soil the oil may have soaked into.
    small bag to keep the junk consolidated.

    goal is not to have to use one, but if you do leave the environment cleaner than before.

    I do spill clean up as part of my job so I may have more than the basic kit

    I have about the same as Robb. I add to it some biodegradable citrus stuff that will help breakdown anything you cannot scoop up.

    that is a good one. For diesel, gas and oil spills as work we use about a 1:25 mix of dawn detergent(1) and water(25) because our environment dept (work at intel) has got approval for that stuff to go into storm drains.
    it is also what they use on animals/birds in oil spills. their mix is probably more like 1:2 or something like that. The smaller bottles at dollar tree work pretty good. I use it as home in the driveway all the time
