Consumer Scrubbing Wipe Article and Method of Making Same

November 8, 2010

A consumer scrubbing wipe article including a nonwoven substrate and a texture layer has recently been awarded a patent. The nonwoven substrate has a dry basis weight of less than about 300 gsm, and thus promotes easy, comfortable handling by a user. The texture layer is a non-crosslinked, abrasive resin-based material that is printed onto at least one surface of the nonwoven substrate. In this regard, the texture layer covers less than an entirety of the substrate surface and extends at least 50 microns outwardly beyond the substrate surface to which it is printed. This characteristic ensures that the scrubbing wipe article has a distinct scrubbiness attribute.
