Shop Towels and Rags vs. Disposable Dry Wipes

When it comes to wiping a surface – whether it’s a counter or machine part – there’s a perception that using a rag or shop towel multiple times is less wasteful than using a disposable wipe.
But rags and towels sometimes leave behind lint, dirt and debris, using them can compromise a manufacturing process and those contaminants can potentially get into the product being manufactured, resulting in rework.

Here are some other reasons why rags and laundered shop towels are not as dependable as industrial wipes:

Are inconsistent in size, shape and material
May contain pins, buttons and metal shavings which can lead to scratches and other imperfections on surfaces
Occupy more storage space in industrial warehouses than disposable wipes

Laundered Shop Towels
Can retain lead, a toxic heavy metal, which can cause serious health issues to the worker like elevated blood lead levels and hypertension
Not engineered for specific applications
Contribute to landfill waste
