TuffStuff’s synthetic-cotton blend yarn is a workhorse that outlasts conventional mops by 5 to 8 times and stands up well to laundering. The synthetic component of the yarn adds durability; the cotton boosts absorbency and reduces drying time. The tailband helps keep the mops fan shape, providing better floor coverage and eliminating tangles. TuffStuff wide band mops can be used with any Jaws or clamp style handle and are the preferred mop for use in hospitals and long term care facilities. Looped-end construction prevents tangling, fraying and knotting.
