Roll Towels and our Roll Towel Wash Program

If you’re reading this, it means you’re in the market to reduce waste overflow in your company’s restrooms, reduce the cost of paper products for your business, and to find small ways to reduce your impact on the environment. You are in the right place! Continuous roll towels are the perfect solution for all of these problems. Lets start at the beginning:

What is a Continuous Roll Towel Towel?

Hand hygiene is vital in preventing the spread of bacteria and viruses. The COVID-19 pandemic has brought workplace cleanliness and safety to the forefront. This includes effective hand washing efforts. Cloth hand towels are a more hygienic environmentally-friendly hand drying solution to air dryers and paper towels.

Why is hand drying important? Hand washing and rinsing tend to be the main focus in the hand hygiene process. However drying is just as, if not more important. According to an article published by the Mayo Clinic, “Wet hands spread germs more easily than dry hands do.” If you do not fully dry your hands, you are more likely to transit bacteria back onto your damp hands than dry hands. The action of rubbing hands with a towel is essential in removing bacteria from the hands and cotton towels eliminate the highest number of bacteria from wet hands.

How do Cloth Roll Towels and Dispensers Work?

A common misconception about cloth roll towels is that there is a continuous cloth loop in the dispenser, when in fact it is not a loop at all. The open-ended cloth roll towel is kept in two separate sections within the dispenser in order to ensure the clean and dirty sections never touch. Roll Towel Cabinets use a Quick-change drive mechanism in which no tools are needed to remove the entire drive mechanism in the field if there ever is a problem or a jam. Roll Towels and Roll Towel Cabinets are available for purchase on our website!

Phelps Cloth Roll Towel Wash Program

Because they are machine washable, cloth roll towels are a no-brainer hand drying solution for most facilities. However, each roll towel is 38 yards long, which can potentially make them cumbersome to launder. Luckily at Phelps, laundry is what we DO! Similar to our classic Uniform Laundry Process, our Roll towel Wash Program allows you to let us do the hard work for you by laundering your roll towels, and shipping them back to you, wherever you may be located in the country! For $9.99 per towel, you can ensure your cloth roll towels are washed at 140 degrees and dried at over 440 degrees. Because bacteria is killed at 165 degrees, all bacteria is killed and removed from the cloth roll towels during laundering.
