Do NOT pour antifreeze down the drain. Do NOT pour antifreeze outside. The content of your antifreeze, whether it is new or used or mixed with another fluid, is important. Take note of the makeup of your antifreeze when inquiring about local disposal methods.
How Do I Clean Up Antifreeze?
Be conscientious of spills in your garage or work area. Antifreeze should be cleaned immediately if spilled. Carefully and safely absorb the material with kitty litter or sand, and cover with paper towels. Next, wipe up after letting it absorb or rest. Throw away the collected material and wash the area with soap and water before drying thoroughly.
Is Antifreeze Dangerous for Pets?
Yes, very much so. Antifreeze is toxic for pretty much all living things, but pets are particularly attracted to the smell and taste of antifreeze. Take extra care with regard to open containers or spills around dogs, cats or other household pets.
