Question: Who invented wood sponge?

Xiaoqing Wang and colleagues at the American Chemical Society created the sponge by treating natural balsa wood with chemicals to reduce it to a cellulose skeleton, then adding a hydrophobic coating that attracts oil but not water. Tested in a mixture of water and silicone oil, it removed all the oil.

What is wood sponge used for?

Will baking soda absorb oil?

If youve recently spilled oil onto your driveway, baking soda is the go-to remedy for this. In such a situation, the baking soda will absorb the excess oil. Using a circular motion and a brush with stiff bristles, clean the stain by rubbing in the baking soda, and then wash away the baking soda with clean water.
