Best Tips To Clean The Cooking Oil Spilled

By Jane K - 14 of July 2022

How to Clean Up an Oil Spill, is not about saving the environment. It's about saving your kitchen floor! Yesterday, Last night, clumsy me bumped oil glass with my elbow and knocked it off the counter onto my tiled floor, where--you guessed it--it shattered. Cleaning up broken glass is difficult enough, but cleaning up broken glass covered in olive oil, and sitting in a pile of olive oil is almost impossible! I was also worried because some of it landed on the grout. My sister-in-law once told me that her tile grout was ruined by an olive oil spill in her pantry. At least her grout was hidden in the closet. Mine was in the middle of the kitchen floor. I was able to save the day with a simple solution. Let me show you how I did it!

As the saying goes, “oil and water don’t mix.” So when the bottle of cooking oil spills all over the kitchen floor, reaching for the mop probably isn’t the best idea. If there is any broken glass in the spill, cleaning can seem even more impossible. However, the steps below will help you easily clean up the oil, as well as the broken glass.

Cleaning the Cooking Oil Spill

You Will Need:

  1. Shoes
  2. Ice cube tongs
  3. Gardening gloves
  4. Newspaper
  5. An absorbent material, such as: Baking Soda
  6. Bread
  7. Paper towels
  8. Spatula
  9. Dustpan
  10. Dish liquid
  11.  BeaBos™ Mop
  12. Lint Roller

Steps to Clean the Spill:

1. If there is any broken glass in the oil spill (if the bottle shattered), first put on shoes that have rubber soles or are washable. Then, use ice cube tongs¹ or garden gloves to pick up the larger pieces of glass. (Do NOT use oven mitts.) Wrap the glass in newspaper to avoid tearing the trash bag.

2. Cover the oil with an absorbent material, such as kitty litter³, corn starch⁴, baking soda⁵, salt⁶, wood shavings³, or sand.

3. Let the absorbent material soak up the oil for about 10-15 minutes.

4. Use paper towels or a spatula to scoop the material into a dustpan.

5. Repeat steps 2-4 until most of the oil is removed.

6. Wipe the floor with slices of bread or paper towels to remove the remaining oil residue.

7. Use a grease-fighting dish liquid and warm water to mop the floor.

8. If there was any glass in the spill, wait for the floor to dry, then run a lint roller or thick tape over the area to pick up any shards.

9. Thoroughly wash the spatula, dustpan and mop with dish liquid and warm water.

Additional Tips and Advice

Dip a cloth in soapy water and wipe the outside of the oil container after each use to remove any oil residue. This will prevent the container from being slippery when you pick it up in the future.

If you use a cloth towel to clean up the spill, wash it in hot water with your usual laundry detergent. Let the towel air dry after the wash.
