Rubbermaid Commercial Products Launches New Hygen™ Disposable Microfiber System

​​Rubbermaid Commercial Products (RCP), the global leader in the commercial cleaning industry, recently launched a new and improved line of HYGEN™ Disposable Microfiber Cloths and Mop Pads. The HYGEN™ Disposable Microfiber system assists in environmental cleaning, the first step in the disinfection process, by removing 99.7% or more of tested viruses and bacteria*† with water alone to help improve cleaning efficacy.

The COVID-19 pandemic has put a spotlight on the critical importance of cleaning and disinfection across all environments. HYGEN™ Microfiber’s science-based design and tested efficacy serves as an effective infection prevention solution in healthcare and other settings.

Additionally, the disposable nature of these cloths and mop pads encourages cleaning with a new cloth or pad for each area or task, helping to reduce cross-contamination. The cloths and pads are compatible with common disinfectants, including Quat (does not bind), Chlorine Bleach and Hydrogen Peroxide, and built-in scrubbing stripes are made of polyester to help effectively remove dirt. The cloths can be stored in the HYGEN™ Charging Tub, and the mop pads can be used with the HYGEN™ Quick-Connect Handle or HYGEN™ Pulse Mop providing an efficient and effective clean in any environment.

Michelle Olsen, Senior Manager on RCP’s Microfiber team says, “We are extremely excited to be launching this superior product to the market, especially during this unprecedented time when environmental cleaning is imperative. We are proud of our rigorous testing and the distinguished quality and benefits that the HYGEN™ Disposable Microfiber line brings to the cleaning industry.”
