7 Things to Look for in a Pre-Saturated Cleaning Wipe

Pre-saturated cleaning wipes can be used in a variety of applications, from cleanroom environments and healthcare sectors to aerospace and manufacturing industries. Pre-saturated wipes can be altered to meet the exact specifications you need for your industry, whether you need a wiper that is highly absorbent and can help you quickly and effectively clean up chemical spills, a wipe that can withstand chemicals, acids, and solvents, or a pre-saturated wipe that meets the requirements for use in critical cleaning operations. With so many industrial pre-saturated cleaning wipe options on the market, we've decided to put together a list of the top 7 things you should look for when choosing a pre-saturated cleaning wipe to make sure that you choose the right wiper for your specific application.

Abrasion Resistance

The best pre-saturated cleaning wipes are soft and non-abrasive. When looking for a pre-saturated wiper for non-critical and critical applications, you should look for a wiper that won't fall apart when being used to clean up chemical spills, won't scratch expensive equipment when cleaning smooth surfaces, and is strong enough to use in a variety of industrial applications.

Durable, Multi-Purpose Material

There are many different materials and styles of pre-saturated cleaning wipes on the market, from non-woven to woven, and polypropylene to polyester. If you are looking for an all-purpose pre-saturated cleaning wiper that can be used in many different applications, Polypropylene wipes are resistant to acids, chemicals, solvents, and other harsh, degrading substances, and are excellent for cleaning a wide range of surfaces and products and absorbing and wicking a variety of different liquids and solvents.


The right pre-saturated cleaning wipes are made out of a clean, low lint, residue-free material such as Polypropylene and cellulose, and can be used in critical, controlled environments such as cleanrooms, laboratories, electronics assembly rooms, as well as non-critical operations.

Tear Resistance

When working with heavy machinery or in a critical environment that has stringent requirements, you need a pre-saturated wipe that is not only strong and durable and can withstand harsh chemicals and substances but will not tear or shed, and won't give off dust or pollutants that might compromise the results of testing or disturb electronics manufacturing.

Maximum Absorbency

Pre-saturated cleaning wipes should be highly absorbent and capable of quickly absorbing spills, including chemicals, oils, acids, solvents, and other harsh substances, as well as be capable of handling specific, exacting cleaning requirements, such as those in cleanrooms and assembly rooms where particle capture and frequent deep cleaning are essential to keep equipment and chemical testing protected.

Cost Efficiency

Wipers made from natural fibers are both highly effective and cost-efficient, and are highly absorbent and durable, making these types of wipes a great option for a range of applications in various industries.

Weight & Size

The weight and thickness of a pre-saturated wiper not only affect the appearance of a wipe but determines the absorbency of the wiper as well as its durability in various applications. Precision solution dry wipes are medium weight and excellent for pre-cleaning, yet strong and durable enough to absorb oil and grease. The wipes are perforated for ease of use, fit easily in a reusable container with a closable lid for safety, and are available in three sizes to meet your specific needs:

  • 150 count dry refill rolls for canister
  • 400 count dry refill rolls for a 1-gallon bucket
