Unwanted textile clothing materials that is SOFT and ABSORBENT, WASHED and RECYCLED (USED) has long been a favourite general purpose cleaning rag in automotive, industrial and marine workshops.

Being SOFT means that these knitted cottons are non-abrasive and will not scratch surfaces or the user with discarded pins, buttons or remnant metal objects such as zips. Running the textiles thoroughly through a metal detecting machine also ensures that such foreign objects are removed from the materials prior to packaging.

Only selecting used WASHED fabrics ensures that the material is ABSORBENT. New unwashed textiles are not nearly as absorbent as used washed textiles.

By using RECYCLED (USED) textile clothing that has been reclaimed, washed and reused is environmentally responsible and saves this discarded clothing from unnecessarily heading into land refills. It is also lowers the cost of the product.

There are a variety of recycled textile materials available, including:-

  • MIXED COLOURED T-SHIRT (recycled coloured singlets which are soft and very absorbent). These are the most popular, economical type of workshop rag. A low linting material with high absorbency characteristics.
  • WHITE T-SHIRT (white recycled singlets). For tasks where a colourless rag is required, such as when solvents are used. These cotton blended recycled T-Shirt materials are very absorbent and ideal for polishing tasks.
  • MIXED COTTON (reclaimed soft cotton fabrics, such as polo shirts and windcheater). A high volume budget rag, known as FLEECY. This rag is made up of a mix of medium and light coloured cotton recycled materials.
  • WHITE COTTON T-SHIRT (a light, soft material from sheets, business shirts etc)
