TIDDOX® MAXI WIPES are ideal wash-up cloths with a soft texture and a high absorption capability derived from their high viscose content. These long lasting, wash-up cloths are capable of absorbing in excess of 8 times their own weight in liquid, making them ideal for rapidly soaking up vast amounts of liquid, such as table and counter spills. Their soft, non-abrasive texture ensures that they will not damage or scratch surfaces. Sponge like cloths that can be rinsed, washed and reused several times, making them a very economical. Available in Green, Red, Blue and Yellow so different colours can be assigned to separate areas.

MAXI WIPES wash-up cloths are a replacement for J-Cloths, and are ideally suited for the following purposes:-

  • General washup cloth for drying purposes
  • Wiping down surfaces ahead of food preparation 
  • Cleaning of households, kitchens, bathrooms, washrooms, showers, toilets, basins etc.
  • Absorbing spills in hotels, restaurants, bars, clubs
  • Cleaning mess areas in aged care and child care
  • Wiping down tables and appliances
  • General cleaning


The TIDDOX wash-up cloths are called MAXI WIPES, sometimes also referred to as "J-Cloths", "Industrial Cloths", "Super Cloths" or "Viscose Cloths". The manufacturing process to produce these nonwoven fabrics involves processing the materials through a needlepunch converter.

MAXI WIPES are specifically engineered to be fast absorbing cleaning products, ideal for soaking up vast amounts of liquid quickly. They are often used to soak up spills on bar counters and tables, because of their fast absorption ability. They are also great for rapidly absorbing spills on carpets and other surfaces. This quick absorption capability makes them popular in child care and aged care organisations, and the fact that they are colour coded allows particular colours to be designated to specific areas. The thick cushion material of MAXI WIPES also makes them suited to these environments as they are soft and smooth on skin. Available in packs of 10 that can be distributed around residential care facilities, kindergartens, pre-schools and primary schools to quickly take care of any unexpected liquid or urine spills or mess.

MAXI WIPES are similar to J-Cloths used in the hospitality industry. The wash up cloths are very popular in bars and pubs to soak up alcohol spills from counters, and favoured by restaurant waiters who can carry them around in their aprons to quickly wipe down tables. Kitchen staff in hotels and the catering industry also love these wash-up cloths to prepare and wipe down kitchen surfaces before and after food preparation. The colour coded features of these J-Cloth replacements mean that the benefits of these rapidly absorbing viscose sponge cloths can extend to janitorial staff cleaning washrooms and bathrooms. For hygiene control purposes, each area or task is typically restricted to a certain colour cloth, typically Green for kitchens, Blue for general purpose wiping and Red for high germ risk areas such as toilets. Yellow is typically allocated to special tasks or areas.

The larger and thicker version of the MAXI WIPES are the SUPERMAX ORANGE SHAMMYS . These giant sized, thick absorption pads are used by commercial cleaners as floor cleaning pads or as chamois cleaning products to wash down boats, cars and trucks. The giant orange viscose fabric is economically packed into cartons of 200 absorbent pads. The TITAN CHAMOIS is a yellow coloured fabric made of the same viscose material and size except 50% thicker still. Besides applications suited to its enhanced absorption capacity these TITANS are also used by mechanics and garages as oil drop sheet placed under motor vehicles.

TIDDOX MAXI WIPES are very popular, high quality, super absorbent, colour coded wash up cloths used in hospitality, aged care and childcare through Australia.
