ITS Merchants blog: Big Wipes 4×4 – Perfect 4×4 the trade!

Below is an article by Paul Woodcock, as posted on the ITS website.  ITS Merchants is one of the largest independent Professional Tool Suppliers in the UK and stock a wide range of Big Wipes products.

When working with grime, muck and dirt, all you want at the end of the day is to wipe your hands clean of a project. Not just in the sense of getting home, throwing your tracky bottoms on, getting a pizza and watching Game of Thrones (which is exactly what I’ll be doing tonight) – no no, I’m talking literally wiping your hands clean.

So it’s reassuring to know that for this sticky situation, there’s a quality brand like Big Wipes out there that are constantly wiping the slate clean with new products capable of shifting modern construction filth.  Their new 4×4 range is now available through ITS and for all tradesmen, they’re definitely worth a shout when considering your portable cleaning products.

Make a clean sweep of all that dirt

Why? Here’s why! The 4×4 range removes all the kind of dirt that appears on site such as:

  • Paint
  • Adhesive
  • PU Foam
  • Silicone
  • Gap fill
  • Oil
  • Grime
  • Egg Yolk from your breakfast roll (not officially quoted by Big Wipes but I’m sure they’ll confirm that haha)

They’re tough on dirt, that’s a given – then again, so is industrial-strength bleach but you wouldn’t want to throw your hands into that now would you? (If the answer was ‘yes’ just then, we’d advise speaking to a mental health professional).

Tough and gentle all at once

So it’s also good to know that the 4×4 range was developed by Big Wipes’ crack team of chemists and fabric engineers, who invested heavily in the latest solvent technology. There’s four skin conditioners to keep your hands protected:

  • Aloe Vera (I can never say this without wanting to do a parrot impression)
  • Lanolin
  • Vitamin E
  • Glycerine

Avoid a Dirty-Bomb Site

A really annoying problem with any cleaning product can be getting old dirt all over the place. Sometimes, there’s just no stopping it. But with the 4×4 range, there’s a solution!

A really awesome feature of these wipes is the use of the Big Wipes’ Closed Cell technology which keeps any dirt on the wipes and doesn’t transfer back to your hands. It’s like in-built magic! You can even use the same area of the wipe that’s got a whole host of grime on it to clean something else without worrying about getting the old muck everywhere.

You’d think that’d be enough advantages but there’s more!

  • They’re completely preservative-free
  • The wipes feature >99.9% anti-bacterial protection (assessed to the latest EU Regulations for cosmetic products)
  • They’ve been tested by dermatologists and recorded zero levels of skin irritation
  • With the ‘flick and click’ lid, you can get a single wipe just as easily as grabbing a long continuous sheet of wipes.
