We use a proprietary blend of cotton and polyester for our Turkish terry cloth dairy towels. The towels are primarily cotton for three reasons.
First, cotton fibers get stronger when they are wet. This allows SaniSure’s cloth dairy towels to be washed in hot water with bleach and detergent without harm to the towel.
Second, the looped pile construction gives our dairy towels added durability to withstand the rubbing, pulling, and tugging they incur with regular use.
The third reason is the superior absorption qualities of natural cotton. Our cloth dairy towels can absorb up to 27 times their own weight in water.
Finally, we complemented the cotton construction with polyester. Polyester is resilient, chemical resistant, and resists shrinking and stretching.
These advantages add up to a dairy towel that is tough and durable during use, absorbent enough to dry the udder completely, and strong enough to withstand the rigorous cleaning procedures required to have a clean, sanitized towel.
