Las Vegas OilDri report
Just in case anyone else in the Las Vegas area was looking for a cheap turface type substance I wanted to let you know that the OilDri that Walmart carries here is a good product for the time being.
I bought six 25# bags of it yesterday from two different stores and soaked them overnight. They did not break down into mud. The granules can be broken with a fingernail if you try. I even put some in a pot and boiled it for 20 minutes to see if it would break down. Nope.
The size is okay, but I think you'd want to screen it down for the gritty mix. I estimate (guess) that maybe 25% is smaller than insect screen...
