Rug keeps garage oil spills to a minimum


Oil spills are one headache that comes with working on a car, but a new rug could help the cleanup process go a little faster. Design Engineering Inc. has released its new — and appropriately named — Oil Rug designed to keep work areas neat and tidy.

The rug has sealed and welded edges and can hold as much as 16 ounces of fluid before disposal in the included plastic bag.

But there is more than one use for the rug: “In addition to its use for oil changes, DEI’s Oil Rug can be used for any small engine repair and makes a great addition to the work bench of the occasional Do-It-Yourselfer, or as a required safety product for auto care professionals,” the company wrote in a news release.

“Applications include placement under motorcycles and cars when parked in the garage or bench top repairs for transmissions, small engines or any project that that can cause an oily mess.”

The rugs are available in three sizes that range from 12 inches by 18 inches to 29 inches by 48 inches.

For more details, head to DEI’s website or call 800-264-9472.
