So what makes cloths absorbent? Well, it depend on a variety of factors. For instance, the quality, thickness and weight of the fabric, and the concentration of absorbent material mixed with synthetic materials.


Most absorbent wipes and cloths are made from cotton or a mix of woodpulp derivatives and synthetic materials. Materials that are derivatives of wood pulp include viscose, rayon, cellulose or polyamide. These materials improve the liquid retentive qualities of wipes. Hence, the higher the levels of absorbent wood pulp derivatives, the higher the absorbency. Conversely, the higher the levels of synthetic materials, the lower the retentive levels of the wipes.
So, if you want absorbent cloths, choose ones made by TIDDOX. Why? Because we take care to get the mix right and not make cheap, non-absorbent products. Moreover, beware of low quality, cheap, ineffective, non-absorbing products.
