The term cleaning cloths refers to all cloths made of paper, textiles or plastic materials which are used for cleaning people or objects. These include cleaning rags made of cloth, disposable washcloths, microfiber cloths, special industrial wipes and more. Some cleaning cloths must be first soaked in a cleaning agent, while others are already equipped with it, such as moist toilet paper. The cloths are made to suit the articles to be cleaned and cleaning agents to be applied in terms of material and the surface composition. A window cleaning cloth needs to have other physical and chemical properties than a cleaning cloth for engines or towels used in hospitals for disinfection purposes.
