PFG develops nonwoven cleaning towel

March 6, 2014

Nonwoven laminate can be washed up to 20 times

The Precision Fabrics Group, Greensboro, NC, has developed a cleaning towel for use around the entire house—the kitchen, bathroom, and garage—for all types of cleaning chores. 

In the kitchen it can replace dish rags used for cleaning dirty pots and pans, and it can be used with spray cleaners on counter tops, appliances, cook tops and even floors. This towel is so absorbent that it can replace the cotton dish towels normally used for drying work surfaces, utensils and dishware.

The patent pending design gives this towel the strength and absorbency to replace woven cotton and terry towels that are up to three times heavier in weight. It is made with a very absorbent fiber exterior and a polyester core for strength.  It is this construction that allows the towels to be washed with bleach on the hot water setting to remove really tough stains or with a standard wash cycle to return the towels to their original bright white color.   This towel has been designed for, and proven to survive, at least 20 residential wash/dry cycles.
