Looking for a car washing cloth? Whether it is to clean the body of the vehicle or the interior or the glass windscreens, there are different materials best suited to the each of these particular applications.

When washing and polishing the exterior of the car, you ideally want to use a non-abrasive material that will not scratch or damage the car’s paint work. The CHAMOIS/ SHAMMYS are highly absorbent orange drying cloths that will absorb the water from the initial wash, but will then need to be followed by a polishing cloth, such as the MICROMAX or the lint free INDUSTRO WIPE . These latter products are manufactured from lint free materials that will keep the body free of streaks. There are many different types of automotive cleaning cloths that vary depending on the task.

The ORANGE SUPERMAX (sometimes referred to as the Orange Shammy) is a thick and absorbent CAR WASHING SHAMMY that will quickly absorb water off a car and dry it in preparation for polishing. They are made of a large, soft material that also works well when bus washing, boat washing or general large surface area wiping due to their size and extra ordinary absorption capacity. These non-abrasive cleaning materials are also ideally suited to clean boat equipment or even as sailboarding equipment cleaning cloths. They are also used by mechanics as disposable oil drop sheets, because of their size and absorbent nature.

Then there are the WINDSCREEN WIPING fabrics. For this task you want to use a low linting / lint-free material to achieve a streak free finish. Our most popular glass / window cleaner is the INDUSTRO WIPE , a large white woodpulp polyester blended sheet that is lint free and highly absorbent. They give a brilliant finish and are ideal for wiping windscreens and glass cleaning. They are commercially packed into 300 wipers per carton and are a favourite with automotive customising businesses that go through many automotive detailing cloths These cleaning products also come in a smaller format (38cm x 34cm), called the SOLVENT RESISTANT WIPES . These automotive cleaning products are packaged 50 per pack.

For CAR POLISHING, you need look no further than our microfibre cleaning range. The MICROMAX , is a baby blue smooth microfibre polishing material that will absorb remaining water whilst polishing a car or boat. These are great all round glass cleaning materials that come in handy packs of 10 sheets per packet, 10 packets per carton. Alternatively, another car detailing product is our colour coded thick pile microfibre cloths that are high in gsm and absorption capacity. These general purpose microfibre cleaning materials are washable and reusable and can be used for a variety of other wiping tasks.

If you are looking for VALETING DETAILING CLEANING MATERIALS to clean and wipe down the inside of vehicles, we would recommend the OMNIWIPES . These highly absorbent cleaning products are perfect for picking up dirt and dust particles, and with their high viscose count, they make for a very absorbent white cleaning cloth, available in packs of 50 wipers. These valeting cleaning fabrics are often used as detailing cleaning tools or as alternatives to textile cleaning wiping rags, as they are less bulky, more effective and a lot cheaper.

For OIL WIPING CLOTHS , there are a number of choices, including the WHITE OIL ABSORPTION PADS , which are thick polypropylene pads which will absorb 1 litre of oil per pad (and resist water) or the GREY GENERAL PURPOSE PADS , the difference being they will absorb both oil and water. There are also the blue meltblown DEGREASING PREPARATION WIPES , which are made from a strong, durable polypropolyne material ideal for absorption of oils, grease, chemicals and solvents. Also available in roll format - see the meltblown DEGREASING JUMBO ROLL .

For GREASE AND SOLVENT WIPING , the low linting WHITE RHINO ROLLS are excellent and with 220 hand sized wipers per roll, this is a very economical wiping solution for medium duty tasks. For more heavy duty applications, we recomment the low linting, strong and durable BLUE JUMBO RHINO ROLLS , which comprises of 475 easy tear off thick polyporopylene wipers, ideal for use with solvents, grease and oil spills. TIDDOX has recently introduced the BLUE JUMBO RHINO ROLLS material in a portable WHITE PULL OUT BOX , called the INDUSTRIAL RHINO WIPES .

For economical and disposable paper towels for the workshop, popular are TIDDOX's industrial paper wiping rolls, such as the "RAG-ON-A-ROLL" or the blue paper industrial rolls, called JUMBO PAPER TOWEL ROLL , which are disposable oil absorption paper wipers.

The ORANGE PEEL formulated INDUSTRIAL WET WIPES are perfect for removing grease and oil from hands and tools. They are packaged in a can, with 70 pull out perforated sheets, leaving a pleasant citrus odour. Refills available.

For tough, durable tasks a popular wiping solution is the 4-ply scrim blue "RAG-ON-A-ROLL" , a 70m perforated roll comprising 200 sheets of nylon webbed tissue that will not fall apart when wet, nor tear easily. MicroFibre Car Washing Gloves or washing mitts made of cotton and are also a useful cleaning tool to clean cars. They rapidly collect dirt off the vehicle surface and need to be washed out often to prevent scratching or damaging the vehicle surface.
