There are many reasons a custodial crew would want to use a premoistened wipe in their cleaning program. Experts site convenience, time savings, ease of use, economic efficiency, prevention of cross contamination and the diversification of the nonwovens industry to accommodate various applications as reasons for the increasing popularity of consumer and industrial wipes.

For virtually every cleaning/disinfecting need, there is an available premoistened wipe. Wipes are used regularly for cleaning hands, stainless steel, glass, furniture, whiteboards, vehicles, carpets, leather, gym equipment and restrooms. The use of wipes also is gaining popularity for removing graffiti and applying sunscreen, insecticide and repellents.
