EXTERIOR POLISHING and WASHING CLOTHS

Importantly, when polishing the exterior of a vehicle you don’t want to scratch the paint. Hence, you use a non-abrasive material that will not cause damage. For instance, TIDDOX’s super absorbent SUPERMAX ORANGE CHAMOIS. Soak these soft, absorbent shammys in soap water and then clean the exterior of the vehicle. Once rinsed, dry the surface using another CHAMOIS or SHAMMY. In fact, this product holds many times its own weight in liquid. And they cover a decent surface area measuring 50 cm x 60 cm. Hence,  a perfect size for exterior washing of vehicles. Also, they’re not going to scratch the surface area when wiping and drying. As a result, they’re used to wash school buses, trucks and boats. Also, popular with mechanics as disposable oil drop sheets. 
 
However, we also have a smaller version, called MAXI WIPES . Once rinsed, use a MAXI WIPE or WASH MITT to dry the surface. Also useful are the MICROFIBRE CLEANING CLOTHS .
 
And when it comes to cleaning windscreens and windshields, the INDUSTRO WIPES are great! For example, use these large wipes to clean glass, mirrors and metal surfaces. Not only are they super absorbent, they won’t leave lint or scratch the surface. And, they works well with cleaning agents. So, if you’re looking for strong, tear resistant and solvent resistant wipes, these are the go! Packed with 300 automotive wipes per carton.

INTERIOR VALETING AUTOMOTIVE WIPES

However, when it comes to the inside of the vehicle, we’ve a different set of wipes.
 
In fact, for cleaning windscreens there are a couple of LINT-FREE GLASS CLEANING products. Firstly, we have the LINTNIL WIPES. These are TIDDOX’s number one selling windscreen wiping product. Try this window cleaning cloth used by professionals. This product gives a brilliant finish on windscreens.

So you can use these to clean windows, mirrors, and buffs interiors. Also, used wet or dry. And they’re compatible with cleaning chemicals.

 
Thirdly, for fine polishing in hard to reach corners, try our MICROFIBRE LENS CLOTHS. In fact, these are the same cloths you use to clean your spectacles. And, they work a treat on buffing interiors! Available in small (15 cm x 15 cm) and large (40 cm x 40 cm). Also, washable and reusable.
 
In addition, for less delicate applications, use microfibre wash gloves or WASH MITTS. These are great for collecting dirt off the surfaces. However, you must wash the dirt out after use to avoid scratches.
Finally, we have the OMNIWIPES . These have a high absorption capacity. Their apertures will pick up dirt and dust when wiping interiors. Mechanics use them as a rag replacement. An alternative to WHITE CLEANING RAGS. They are more absorbent, lower linting, less bulky and cheaper.
 

ENGINE, GREASE and OIL WIPING

When cleaning bearing or engines, the last thing you want is lint to separate from the cleaning wipes. What’s required is strong, durable absorbent lint-free wipes. That’s why we’ve introduced the LINT-FREE EQUIPMENT CLEANING WIPES.
For engine and hubcap cleaning mechanics use SOLVENT RESISTANT WIPES. Smooth, non-abrasive polishing wipes. Also strong and absorbent to remove stubborn debris, dirt and engine oil. Use this product with solvents to cleans brakes and clutches. Best of all its ultra low linting, so you won’t have bits of wipes separating when rubbing. 
 
Another option for heavy duty scrubbing is the JUMBO RHINO ROLL. Lint-free wipes that are very strong and durable. Each roll holds 475 easy tear off thick sheets. And these sheets withstand solvents, grease and oil. Also available in a dispenser box called INDUSTRIAL RHINO WIPES.
 
For a smaller roll size, try the WHITE RHINO ROLL. Made in a less heavy weight. Ideal for GREASE AND SOLVENT WIPING tasks. Low linting and cost effective.
