Title: A NONWOVEN WEB DESIGNED FOR USE IN A WET FLOOR CLEANING WIPE
Abstract:
The invention describes a nonwoven material suitable for use as a wet floor wipe or mop, containing at least a first cellulosic nonwoven web which (a) has high wet strength and abrasion resistance, (b) is able to dispense cleaning liquids under load over an extended surface area, (c) is able to recover spent or contaminated cleaning liquids from a surface, and (d) is biodegradable, compostable and based on renewable resources, characterized in that the cellulosic nonwoven web is made from essentially pure cellulose formed of essentially continuous filaments and multibonded by merged filaments, hydrogen bonding and physical intermingling of the filaments. Further it describes the use of the inventive nonwoven material as a base sheet for the manufacture of a compostable wet floor wipe or mop, such wipe or mop being loaded with a cleaning chemical solution. Further it describes a compostable wet floor wipe or mop, containing (a) the inventive nonwoven material and (b) a cleaning chemical solution.
