Hi mate
I spoke to mark from wintecs about these and he said they are like the towels you get in the towel rollers in the toilets?
and used more for mopin up washing down meant to be quite hard wearing.
May be someone else can put more light on this for you
Cheers Alan

Huck towels are basicly recyled hospital roller towels cut and hemmed to about 18" lenghts. they are used for detailing work and are superb for this job. the are easy to wash last for ages.
you can get roller towel cut into lengths from most laundry services but the ex hospital are more absorbant than the white ones

i don't rate huck towels. give me scrim any day. Huck towels are not big enough, you would use about 30 a day.

I have used Huck towels for sills,frames etc.  But on glass you can't beat a scrim.

I agree with everyone else, too small for more than a few windows but exellent for a wet cloth for wiping sills etc.
