The hydrophobic mop head absorbs oil and other hydrocarbons but not water. This mop is great for any shop environment for cleaning up oil and other hydrocarbon spills. By properly cleaning up and recycling oil and gas from spills you keep these hazardous materials out of the normal waste water stream. The hydro mop prevents costly slips and falls and keeps oil and other spilled fluids from being tracked all over the shop or garage. The hydro mop attaches to all standard mop sticks.
