Diatomaceous earth (DE) absorbent

Floor-Dry brand diatomaceous earth (DE) absorbent is highly purified and calcined (kiln-fired) for superior absorbent qualities. The unique structure of the diatomite provides Floor-Dry with greater pore space. Because of this, pound for pound it absorbs more liquid than any other mineral on the market today. In fact, Floor-Dry absorbs twice as much liquid as calcined clay and 22% more than the competing DE absorbent. Floor-Dry cleans up spills with no slippery residue or film, making the clean-up area safer, and because you use less, there is less disposal of used material.
