Year Of the Pig: A Spill Clean Up Bonanza?

The Chinese New Year, which begins in February, is always symbolized by a specific animal that defines the qualities for the coming year. It’s a very different concept from how we recognize a new year in the West, with lists of resolutions that are all too soon forgotten.

2019 is the Chinese Year of the Pig, specifically the Brown Earth Pig. Does this connote more mud than usual? What does it mean in terms of spill clean up?

These are important questions to address. So let’s consider what you might need if you’re raising livestock, which presupposes a rural environment, and perhaps farm equipment.

You’ll want a product that gives you an aggressive edge against dirty, slippery surfaces, but also something that’s safe to use in a pigsty, literally.

XSORB EDGE fills the bill. XSORB EDGE Aggressive Absorbent lets you clean up the toughest spills in a hurry, cutting through liquids, lifting them from the surface so you can easily scrub away synthetic oils, petroleum, hydraulic fluids and fuel spills. As heavy as clay, it’s also easy to use and non-toxic to humans or the environment — or pigs, if you happen to be cleaning a tractor near farm animals.

Speaking of farm equipment, our ColdForm Universal Vehicle Spill Kit is the perfect spill clean up product to keep on hand in your truck or tractor. It complies with current BMP regulations that protect our environment, and is handily stored in a nylon bag with handles. Each kit will easily absorb up to eight gallons, and it fits conveniently under or behind a seat.

So to avoid the unpleasant pigment of a spill that gets out of hand, plan now for smart spill containment and spill clean up in the Year of the Pig. When you can handle spill clean up with ease, you’ll be as happy as a pig in mud. Metaphorically speaking.
