Open all windows and doors to make sure that there is open air flow to avoid inhalation of vapor.

Chemical Leaks/Spills

  1. Pour Amphomag® slowly and directly on the spill until fully contained.
  3. The color indicator will turn a reddish/pink to indicate if it is an acid and a bluish color if it is a base.
  5. Continue to slowly add material until it turns a yellow/green color to indicate that it has been fully neutralized.

Oil Clean Up

  1. Take a handful or two of Amphomag® and sprinkle it all over the stain.
  3. Allow Amphomag® about 10 to 15 minutes to absorb the oil.  Amphomag® will not fully neutralize the oil, but it will help to contain it.
