I was skipping along at my local Home Depot store when I came upon a display for Crocodile Cloth original wipes.
The package boldly says: wipes are wimpy.
Okay, so these aren’t wipes, they’re cloths. These are described as all purpose cleaner hand & tool cleaning wipes.
I have been using WypAll hand and tool wipes and continue to love them. Those waterless cleaning wipes allowed me to kick the habit of commandeering baby wipes for the workshop.
The Crocodile wipes – sorry, disposable pre-moistened cleaning cloths – are 15″ x 10″ in size and you get 100 to a pack.
They promise a bigger, tougher, fiercely clean. Okay. I snapped a photo so that I could take a closer look later.
I took a look at Amazon (of course), and they have an 80-count pack of Crocodile Cloth multi-purpose wipes, and for less than the original wipes.
Home Depot’s 100-count pack is $15.88.
Amazon’s 8-count pack is $8.79 at the time of this posting.
The multi-purpose cloth marketing is also a little different. “Don’t just clean, attack.”
Original vs. Multi-Purpose? Crocodile Cloth says that the difference is in the number of sheets per pack (100 vs. 80), and that the multi-purpose cloths are biodegradable.
I love my WypAll hand and tool wipes, but the tubs aren’t as portable as flat-pack wipes like these. I’ll give them a try.
Now, the only question is do I go for the less expensive and biodegradable wipes, or the “original?” Seeing as how Amazon’s user reviews seem quite positive and optimistic, I think I’ll try the multi-purpose pack first.
Crocodile Cloth also makes pre-moistened wipes for other applications.
If you’ve used any of this brand’s cleaning wipes before, what have your experiences been like?
