A few weeks ago, I made a big mess. While moving a pan, I bumped the cabinet and spilled the oil all over the floor. eeeewwww! In the past I've tried cleaning with lots of things, but always had a slick residue. I don't like using lots of chemical cleaners. I remembered that using baking soda on a spilled egg works great, but didn't have enough for this big of a mess. What's the next best thing? Flour. I covered every bit of oil, even the splatters, with it. It worked great. I let it sit long enough to absorb the oil, then swept it up. There were no slick spots to catch me off guard later. Sooooo, if you have a major oil spill on your floor, and I really hope you don't, just grab the floor and broom.
