Answer: 
I don't detect any sand or grit in this compound. It feels soft and damp to the touch. It doesn't leave any grits behind when you sweep with it, so I doubt very much that there is sand in it. There's no way it would scratch a surface as far as I can tell.

Answer: 
No. This is for keeping down dust when sweeping, not for soaking up oil spots. Use clay cat litter to soak up oil spots from the garage or shop floor. Then scrub with strong detergent if you want.

Answer: 
I have not tried it, but I would be afraid that the compound would get stuck in any little pores in the cork, creating a mess that would be hard to deal with. Take care.

Sure. That's the point of using sweeping compound. It grabs onto the dust so that you can sweep without getting the dust everywhere.

50 lb. Sweeping Compound is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 41.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Chioce for Dust Control Consistent and the best value. We use on all our projects to manage dust and it doesn't leave a film on the slab. This makes for an easier time sealing or staining. We also use it on any composite, sheet, and tiled flooring. Does not compromise existing waxed surfaces or unsealed grout joints.
