How to Wash Shop Rags

Shop rags quickly become dirty due to regular usage. Washing these shop rags are often a tedious thing for the people. For this reason, today, we are going to discuss an easy technique on how to wash shop rags. This will be much beneficial for the beginner, and it will also save time. The steps are simplified below.


For this method, you will have to gather some elements. At first, you will need a bucket. The bucket should be big enough to accommodate all the shop rags. Then you will need some industrial purple cleaner. This is much important because the shop rags are always used to wipe oils and heavy machinery liquids. So the industrial cleaners can be much useful. Then you will need some essential dishwasher liquid. You can quickly obtain them from the market. And the most important thing that you will need to make the process accelerated is a pressure washer.

If you do not have a pressure washer, you can use your hands to wash the cloth, but that will be much tedious and time-consuming. So it is better to gather all these elements and then get to work. At first, you have to fill half of the bucket with water. The water should be fresh tap water without any debris. You have to add some industrial purple cleaner to the water, and you have to add some regular dishwasher liquid to the solution. There is no amount specified for the mixture proportions, but we prefer you to add at least two cups of each solution.

But you can increase the amount following the condition of the shop rags. Now you have to dip the shop rags in the liquid and then keep for about three to four hours. It is better that you dip the shop rags ion the night before washing, and then in the morning, you go for the final procedure. But you have to make sure that the total cloths are immersed in water. You will see the color of the water gradually will turn dark. This means that the detergent in the liquid has started working on the shop rags, and the dirt is being retracted from the cloth slowly.

After the immersion period, you have to place the shop rags on a smooth surface, and then you have to sue the pressure washer. You have to apply the pressure washer in the rags, and gradually the detergent that is attached to the rags will start to come off. In this way, you will wash the total rag, and then you have to fill the bucket with clean water again. Then you have to immerse the clean rags in the water and stir them. Gradually the water will wash the cloths. You have to dry the shop rags, and eventually, you will observe the rags free of stains.


In conclusion, we would like to state that the process we have mentioned here will surely help wash the shop rags. The elements used in this technique are easy to obtain, and the pressure washing will provide the best result. Thank you for your time. Have a nice day!
