Disposable Wipes

TIDDOX® Disposables specilaises in disposable cleaning wipes and cleaning cloths. These are economical alternatives to washing and reusing cleaning cloths, and through disposing of the wiper after use is an effective way to control the spread of bacteria resulting in healthier and safer environments.



TIDDOX Disposables supplies quick and practical wiping solutions to deal with spills and messes that occur across industries including healthcare, childcare, aged care as well as hospitality, automotive, janitorial, marine and industrial manufacturing. Although many of our products can be washed and reused, most users look to dispose of them after a single use as this is both economically viable and also prevents any cross contamination of germs, grease, grime etc picked up during the initial wiping application. Often, disposing of the cloth after use is more practical and cost effective, and results in a healthier and cleaner workplace. In fact, more and more healthcare organisations are mandating the single use of cloths and so prefer the disposable solutions that we offer. There is always the aged old debate of cloth wipes versus disposable wipes, but as the industry and the technology has advanced, the latter has become the more convenient, cost effective solution without the hassle that goes with washing and reusing.

To reduce any environmental impact from disposing of wiping fabrics after use, we specifically design our wipers to minimise the polyester content and ensure that they are manufactured with materials that contain high proportions of viscose and/or woodpulp cellulose fibres, which are biodegradable and also increase the absorbency of the material.

The best disposable wipes for a particular task will vary depending on the particular application. TIDDOX supplies a huge number of different types of commercial cleaning cloths and disposable industrial cleaning products, each designed and engineered to suit a particular purpose. So depending on the nature of the wiping task, whether, for example, it is heavy duty industrial scrubbing, equipment lint-free wiping, kitchen food surface cleaning or wiping tasks involving a baby, child or patient, so the appropriate wiping solution will vary. The TIDDOX website should guide you through to the most appropriate wiper for your needs, by purpose or by product, however at any time please feel free to call us to speak with one of our technical experts that will be happy to help.

In the food industry, disposable wipes are definately preferred due to the high risks of contamination and spread of germs when wiping down food contact surfaces. The TIDDOX CLASSIC GREEN SURFACE WIPES and HEAVY DUTY SURFACE WIPES are available is various sheet sizes and colours, as well as in perforated rolls which can be dispensed from our wall dispensers.

In child care, school and aged care industries, disposable alternatives to wash cloths are preferred for cleanliness reasons. Furthermore, colour coded cloths are used to prevent the unnecessary spread of germs from one area to another, or from one task to another. Our spunlace, needlepunch and microfibre wipers are colour coded specifically for this reason and are available in Red, Green, Blue and Yellow, as well as Coffee for coffee baristas. Presented below is an outline of suggested colours to allocate to certain types of category tasks:-
