Infinity Twist dust mops offer top performance and unparalleled durability. The cotton/synthetic blend is tightly twisted to the backing, preventing snagging and fraying.   Infinity Twist yarn provides optimum coverage and the looped ends prevent catching on furniture and other obstacles.
  • Patented "Infinity Twist" provides enhanced absorption
  • Strong synthetic backing resists tearing, shrinking, and fading
  • Available in a variety of colors to easily identify assigned usage areas
  • Date-coded to measure product life
  • Pre-laundered and ready to use
  • Can withstand repeated laundering

Available in lengths from 12" to 72" at 5" width

The following procedure for machine washing blended fiber dust mops will assure maximum performance and longevity.  Filaments from fiber will transfer onto other mops during the laundering process.  To avoid fiber and color transfer we recommend that mops be separated before the laundering cycles or using like colored yarns with different backing colors for easy size identification.

  1. Flush, High, 120°F - 49°C for 2 minutes
  2. Flush, High, 140°F - 60°C for 2 minutes
  3. Break/Suds, Low, 140°F - 60°C for 10 minutes 
    8oz. built (non solvent) detergent for each 100 lbs. - ph 8.5 - 11.5 max.
  4. Rinse/Extract, High, 120°F - 49°C for 2 minutes
  5. Rinse/Extract, High, 100°F - 38°C for 2 minutes
  6. Rinse, High, 80°F - 27°C for 6 minutes
    Active alkalinity not greater than 50 ppm higher than tap water

Additional Processing Information:

  • Centrifugal Extraction: Bring to full speed (300-450 rpm) for 4 minutes and release.
  • Hydraulic Extraction: NOT RECOMMENDED
  • Drying: Tumble at 120°F - 160°F, 49°C - 71°C.  Compared to 100% cotton yarn mops, drying time is significantly reduced with Infinity Twist Blended Dust Mops. Drying times will vary depending on your geographical location, equipment and the environment and load size. Start by tumbling these mops for 8 minutes at 160°F incoming temperature, 120°F exhaust (If available on your equipment, reverse the dryer drum during the drying cycle. It reduces the drying time and will not create heat pockets in the mop/yarns prolonging their service life). When programming auto dryer settings, monitor temperature for the first 3-6 loads, stop temperature when 140°F is reached, then begin cool down after set point has ran for 3-5 minutes. Cool to 90 - 100°F before unloading,
  • MOPS SHOULD NOT BE FULLY DRY; moisture content should be approximately 10%, unless they are being poly wrapped directly from dryer.
  • Handling/Processing:  The final rinse water should be checked to determine the amount of active alkali.  If higher than 50ppm over tap, an additional rinse will be necessary. To insure the total removal of excess alkali, souring may be desired. This should be done according to the recommendations of the supplier of the souring chemical. 

Notes:

  • All of the processing temperatures are very critical. High washing and drying temperatures can severely damage the fibers. 
  • Bleach is not recommended. If used, amount should not exceed the equivalent of 1 quart of 1% concentrate/ 100 lbs. - 20 ml/kg of mops at 10.0 - 10.5 ph.
  • During the first use or first laundering, some residual color may be visible in the solution. This color is not a dye, however pre-rinsing before use may be desired.
  • Over-processing in washer or the dryer or the use of bleach will cause severe damage to the yarn.
