Great Sock

Very absorbent, only absorbs oil, sturdy

By Andrew


Excellent Product

I purchased a large quantity of these to help assist with any type of oil spill in our factory. Unfortunately, we had to use these due to an emergency breakdown and they worked as advertised. I was very happy with these and the price is great as well.

Oil-Only Socks in Machine Shop

We have been loving these socks around the base of our machines! We have been using oil-dry for years but it can be such a mess and takes time to change. With these socks, we just replace them as they get full, and go about our day.

By Cindy



The Absorbent Sock is so light weight yet holds more fluid than expected. It was left in an area for an extended period of time and it help up to all the harsh outdoor elements ... This is a great product and I will re-order for sure.

Great Product

New Pig's Oil-Only Absorbent Socks have been a great addition to our spill cart. They provide a quick effective way to protect storm drains from hazardous spills that could occur.

Fast Ship and Easy to Use

Let's start off by saying that the delivery of these were super fast. I was not expecting them the next day (during the holidays). Next.... The Absorbent Socks are easy to use just about anywhere. They are bendable or you can tie end to end for longer ones. Whatever length you need, wherever you need to use them.... They get the job done! With all that said, we (the company I work for) have decided that we will purchase these again and probably again after that!

Superior Product

This is one of those instances where you really do "get what you pay for." I stock pig oil-only absorbents in all of my spill kits because they do function more efficently than other competitors "like" products that I have tried out. For any petroleum based spills these socks allow our company to create a dam and only soak up what we intend, rather than competitor products that become bogged down with H20.

By Daniel


Great Experience

I have dealt with all kinds New Pig products since I first started in the aviation field over 5 years ago. I have only positive things to say about your products. As for customer service this is the second time I have been on the ordering side of things and no problems so far. Shipping times are quick and email updates with offers are the icing on the cake. Thank you for providing great products and good customer service. I look forward to future business with your company. Daniel

Oil Absorbent Socks work Great!

In the New Engalnd winter conditions (especially this year)these oil only absorbent socks work out great! I've had great success with this product in the past, so I make sure to keep them stocked and on hand in our spill kits. In snow or directly into water these socks can be used in order to pick up any oil product and shed water without becoming bogged down. Thanks for the consistancy!

Oil Absorbent

This product makes our work space safe from slipping on oil spills. The one thing you don't want is work place accidents and this product helps to eliminate that occurance when used properly. My orders are always delivered in a timely manner and I will continue to purchase this item.

By Dan


Works very well

We purchased these for a fuel oil spill cleanup to soak up oil at a collection point. They have worked very well at containing the majority of the skim that has been steadily collecting. Would certainly purchase again!

By James


Pig Socks

We have used these for a couple of years and they have always done the job. We have never had any issues with the quality of the craftsmanship on these. We will continue to buy them along with other quality PIG products.

By Alex


Past, present, and future user!!!

Having discovered the PIG Oil Only socks years ago while working at JFK Airport, I knew exactly where to turn when a requirement arose at my current employer. We were scheduled to do some overnight hot water pressure washing at a garage facility in NYC and were required by code to prevent any oils and debris from entering the drain system. We installed drain silt sacks in the area drains and then surrounded each of them with the Oil Only socks. Once again their performance was flawless. The garage site manager actually cut the end off the box so they could order some for themselves. Pig products ALWAYS deliver!!!

By Michael


pretty good

By Kenny
