Why use lint free cloths?

For streak free windows, body shop repairs, furniture polishing and cleaning tasks, lint free cloths tick every box.

These lightweight, cost efficient cloths do not leave fluff or fibres behind. This can be critical in certain technical situations as well as in the home – not least on your electronic devices and glassware!

Multiple hi-tech industries opt for lint free when it comes to wiping machine parts and removing silicones. These cloths are also a popular choice for their high absorbency properties. Not least when it comes to dealing with spillages such as oil, ink, water and solvents.

The guaranteed consistency of our lint free cloths plus the fact that orders are cut to a uniform size make them the preferred choice for many customers.

What are lint free cloths?

Lint consists of the annoying little fibres that get left behind when wiping or polishing using cotton based cloths or rags. For glassware, furniture and machinery this isn’t ideal.

So how do manufacturers lose the lint?
Man-made and sometimes referred to as ‘non-woven’, lint free cloths are produced via a mechanical process called ‘hydro-entangling’. This means a variety of fibres are bonded together using heat and water, rather than traditional weaving or knitting techniques.
Different types of fibres can be used to create different properties of cloth depending on their purpose.
For example, to produce a high strength cloth, the quantity of polyester is increased. If greater absorbency is required however, more wood pulp is added to the mix.
Generally, fibres are mixed in roughly equal amounts to balance these properties.
