TIDDOX is a distributor of all types of rag materials, including t-shirt rags, cotton rags, towel rags, flannel and linen rags.
Our bags of rags are environmentally friendly, recycled from unwanted clothing. Collected and sorted into t-shirts, linen, fleece, tracksuits, dresses and cotton shirts.
All of the rags get screened and metal detected to ensure unwanted metals removed. This process removes zips and buttons ensuring that the contents of the bags of rags are safe to use. Thus ensuring that the rags don’t contain objects that may injure or scratch surfaces.
Packaging is available in either 20 kg, 10 kg, 5 kg or 1.5 kg bags.
TIDDOX supplies the needs of all industries, including:-
Printers prefer white t-shirt rags as they are ideal with solvents, and show up ink. They also do not run dye from the tshirt. They are also very absorbent. White cotton rags cut from cotton shirts etc. are lower linting, but not as absorbent.


Painters choose the lower linting white cotton rags. They also do not run dye onto the paint job. These reclaimed textiles absorb solvents and are available in most paint shops. TIDDOX supplies painters nationwide with 1.5 kg bags of white cotton bags of rags.



Garages, mechanics and automotive workshops want absorbency out of bags of rags. They choose the COLOURED T-SHIRT RAGS to absorb grease, oil and fuel spills. These are a good, cost effective general workshop cleaning rag.
Panel beaters and car detailers want lower linting bags of rags. They opt for cotton singlets, which are the best cleaning materials for high volume usage. This material is low linting and ideal for automotive window and glass cleaning.
Manufacturing, engineering and industrial businesses use mixed cotton fleecy. This is a cost effective solution for oil and grease wiping jobs. Also useful for cleaning of tools and hands. These general purpose factory wiping rags suit cleaning machinery and equipment.
For more absorbent jobs, they will use COLOURED T-SHIRT RAGS. A more effective solution for absorbing chemical floor spills and other industrial cleanups.
Mining companies receive bulk bales for high volume usage in mining areas.
Mariners tend to go for the white cotton rags, as these are a lighter, absorbent wiping material.
We search out textile clothing that is SOFT, ABSORBENT, WASHED and RECYCLED (USED). Being SOFT means that the cottons are non-abrasive and will not scratch surfaces. Only selecting used WASHED fabrics ensures that the material is ABSORBENT. New unwashed textiles are not as absorbent as used washed textiles. By RECYCLING textiles we reclaim the clothing from landfills, which is environmentally responsible.
There are a variety of recycled textile materials available, including:-


Recycled coloured singlets which are soft and very absorbent. These are the most popular, economic type of workshop rag. A low linting material with high absorbency characteristics.


White recycled singlets. For tasks needing a colourless rag, such as when using solvents. These cotton blended recycled tshirt materials are very absorbent. Ideal for polishing tasks.


Reclaimed soft cotton fabrics, such as polo shirts and windcheaters. A high volume budget rag, known as FLEECY. These bags of rags contain a mix of medium and light coloured cotton recycled materials.


A light, soft material from sheets, business shirts etc. Low linting. Not as absorbent as tshirts.


A low linting, high quality, soft polishing material.
The rags above come from metal detected soft knit materials of varying absorbency. They are all metal detected and safe to use.
