Re-usable wipers cost more than you think.
If you use re-usable laundered wipers, take your next invoice from the re-usable wiping service you use and "do the math". Divide the cost into the number of wipers provided. If your invoice generally has a "number" on it for new wipers, because of ones lost/damaged, you need to make sure you include that in the calculation.
If you wash them yourself, calculate the labor time, detergent, and other washing costs (equipment, water and electricity), space needed) and you will find this process is generally more expensive than a service, if you truly add all the costs.
These wipers easily can cost 25 cents per use, or more. Our low-lint, highly absorbant, eco-friendly bio-degradable wiper is much less in cost. If you are just a little creative in your use of our disposable wipers, you can in many cases get several uses out of them before tossing them, saving even more money. Our Rymplecloth also saves you money by enabling the task to be done faster and better than standard rags or wiping towels. If the job requires low-lint or absorbency properties in the wiper, you already know paper towels, the cheapest product, is not the way to go.
The highly engineered aerospace industry has done all the studied. Our Rymplecloth is their product of choice for all critical wiping.
