Back in the 1950's, if you visited a mechanic's shop, you would not have been surprised to see a grease-covered mechanic wiping blackened hands on an equally grimy shop towel. Today's mechanics often turn to dual texture wipes when they need a soft fabric for cleaning off oil and grease and a rougher fabric for scrubbing away tougher stains.
These wipes are usuallly designed to be around the same size as a paper towel with a smooth, durable side complemented by a slightly rougher texture on the opposite side. They're manufactured using sophisticated meltblown technology to provide added strength, flexibilty and absorbency. It's no wonder mechanics are turning to them for a convenient, disposable way to get the grime off without resorting to harsh chemicals or the greasy rags of old.
Why do these nonwoven wipes work so well? Here are a few reasons:
- Size. They're big enough for the job. Dual texture wipes are designed to be heavy duty for tough cleaning jobs so they're sized appropriately. Tough jobs do not need delicate wipes.
- A textured side for scrubbing. Half of the appeal of these wipes is that they're made to loosen heavily soiled surfaces...from skin to countertops to floors.
- Soft, absorbent side. The other half of the appeal is that the soft side can quickly and easily absorb grime.
- Independent. You don't need to add water. The wipes are treated with the right cleaning chemicals for the job.
- Disposable. You don't have to even think about laundering these wipes.
The next time you visit your car mechanic, take a look around. I'll bet you see some dual texture wipes on the shelf.
