Soy Biosok.... Do they work?

I saw a product called a soy biosok in West Marine that is made from soy beans. Allegedly you place the "soy product tea bag" in the bilge and it will neutralize any oil that finds its way into the bilge.

It just seems like a cross between voodoo and ancient alchemy! Has any one used this product? Does it work?

Thanks

Bill

Re: Soy Biosok.... Do they work?

Thanks for the feedback. Do you have an estimate of how many days before it started to make a visible difference? Do you know if it was mainly from absorption or did it actually seem to break down the oil?

It starting absorbing oil first day. There was not much oil in the bilge and after four days and one sail in 2-3 seas and the bilge looks great.
