My landlord warned me that all water in garage would flow to the south outside wall, so I went to Goodwill and bought about 2 dozen towels to put on floor once the snow started. They captured the melt, but were so heavy to take up, wash, dry and return. At a retired teacher's luncheon, a friend mentioned to me (after hearing my problem) that her husband bought something to absorb oil. There must be something to absorb water. So the next day I went on-line and found PIGS. I ordered a box of 12(105 BL) and I could not believe it. The floor in my garage is dry most of the time, even if I pull my car in covered with snow. Each one holds one gallon of water and it is amazing how they have changed my life. I gave 5 away and ordered 2 more boxes of 12. I have a friend that is a contractor and he wants 12; another friend wants 4 and another friend wants 3. I love showing them off (picture on my phone) and telling about the miracle of PIGS. My neighbors probably think I am ordering pork!
