‘Heavy duty’ cleaning cloths

Ramon Hygiene Products is proud of its manufacturing heritage and has always known that its products offer quality, durability and value for money. It never imagined, however, that customers would still be using the same cloths they purchased over 34 years ago!

Margaret Hamlin from Narborough first discovered a pack of 10 ‘Premium Extra Large Stockinette Dishcloths’ when she started a new job as a science technician back in 1985. She would go on to use these cloths on a daily basis, for all manner of tasks, over the years to come. By simply boiling and bleaching to clean and refresh, she remarkably extended the life of the same pack of cloths for over 30 years. Sooner or later, however, all good things must come to an end.

Upon realisation that Margaret Hamlin was down to her last cloth, she needed to find a solution. Fortunately she still had the original Ramon branded bag which the cloths came in all those years ago. After searching for Ramon on the Internet, she could not believe her luck to find out that these cloths were in fact made on her doorstep at Ramon Hygiene’s Leicestershire factory in Thurmaston – a visit to Ramon’s offices enabled her to replenish her stock!
