Slow down, slow down - the reason you epoxied the floor is so that 
things cab drip on it and be easily wiped up.  There's nothing better 
than good epoxy to let things drip on.

Like you I started using drip pans etc (my garage is for working on my 
race car, not garaging my street car) but quickly realised that there 
was no need and it's much easier to just let things drip and then wipe 
up.  I use pans for draining oil, water etc but not for just drips.

Also be careful about what material you leave on there "permanently" - 
some can leave permanent stains. I started using a rubber mat in front 
of the lathe to avoid aluminum turnings leaving dark gray marks - bad 
idea - that area now has a nice yellow color to it (the rest is white).

Let it drip - - - - -
