With 5 socks to contain even large spills, and chemically inert pillows and pads for different absorption needs, there is enough absorption power in the Oil-Dri for small industrial spills of oil or non-corrosive chemicals. However, the 20 gallon bucket is compact enough to find space in the average household garage, where it is especially useful for the occasional oil spill or car fluid leak. The kit includes 3 disposal bags and an emergency response guide.
The seal is not perfectly tight on the bucket, which may lead to saturation of materials if exposed to rain or unusually wet environments.
While it lacks some of the materials of larger kits, the ESP is a nice size kit for storing at home or to use at a small business in case of emergency. The 3 socks is enough to contain virtually any home spill, and the bucket handle makes it easy to move the kit to where it is needed. Many smaller kits do not include gloves or goggles, but this comes with both.
With only one disposable bag, this kit is only good for a single use of a moderate-sized spill.
This kit includes 2 socks, 10 pads, and 1 disposal bag. While this is smaller than some bucket kits, it adds to the portable nature of this kit, which is where it shines. The lightweight cloth container is easier to carry than bucket models, especially when carried by the attached handles, and it is compact enough to fit easily into the trunk of any car. Its bright yellow stands out in the dark, making it easy to locate in an emergency situation.
2 socks is not enough to contain a large spill, making this kit useful only for lighter jobs.

Any unused materials available for another spill if necessary, with the additional bags for disposal use. It is compact enough to store at home, and uses a yellow duffel bag container for easy travel.
As with many smaller kits, goggles are not included in this product.
The primary benefit of this kit is its size.

Gloves and goggles are included, as are 7 disposal bags. The kit also includes an emergency guidebook and easily visible spill kit sign to hang over the container for easy location.
