Directions for Use

CAPTURE is not hazardous to one’s health, but the liquid being absorbed could be. Use the same precautions you would have in place for a spilled liquid.

Step 1: Sprinkle CAPTURE directly upon the spilled liquid. In the case of a flowing spill, place CAPTURE in front of the spill creating a dam. Less CAPTURE is needed for thick liquids such as motor oil, while more CAPTURE may be necessary for thin liquids like alcohol.

Step 2: Mix CAPTURE into the spill in a circular motion with a stick, rake or stiff bristle broom until the liquid is completely absorbed. Encapsulation will occur upon contact with the liquid.

Step 3: After the spill has been absorbed, remove the captured liquid with a broom and dustpan. Dispose according to Federal, State, and Local regulations.
