1. What tasks will they be used for?
Wiping: Cleaning up small spills or removing oil from smooth surfaces - go with inexpensive, absorbent wipers or rags that contain cellulose.
Cleaning: Scrubbing or removing dirt, stains or adhesives - look for strong, coarse wipers, shop towels or rags that don't shred easily.
Surface Prep: Removing lint or other contaminants from a surface before painting - choose microfibers or other synthetic fibers and low-lint wipers without binders.
Sanitizing: Removing germs from surfaces, often with sanitizing chemicals - look for wipers or rags with good wet strength.
2. What's the work environment?
Big cardboard boxes of rags work well in production areas - they're easy to find and provide a ton of product. Wipers in pop-up boxes or on rolls save space on trucks. And 1/4 -folded wipers are great for vending machines or supply rooms - they're pre-counted for easy dispensing.
