Folks,

I have no doubt that someone here has seen the very strong kitchen paper like Qantas cabin staff use for cleaning up in the aircraft. The thing is can anyone tell me where I can source it in the retail world. It has no perforations and apears to be reinforced with a fine cotton thread.

The sample we saw had apparently rolled out of the aircraft door or fallen off the back of a truck. It is very good and absorbant and no doubt has a premium price compared to the normal kitchen towel paper.
Cheers,

Ruth I guess Smackair is the Virgin mob, I though they pinched rather than smacked pretty girls.

In real life the Nissan is now clean and been modelling for photos in the computer arm shoot. LOL

Thought you should know is wet here having been out in the paddock using the snatch strap to pull tractors and feed wagons today. Deeper than a clay pan. LOL

John, thought it must have been cold and wet (see Member Message). Smackair is local mob - known lately as Slackair (due to not turning up at all), Stackair or smackair, really Macair. Just cost me $930 to fly to Brisbane and back - that for a haircut! (and a fair load of shopping, but that cost extra). LOL. Sunny but cold here - very nice day, SW gusting to about 10 knots. Clear, no clouds.

Ruth, I get a troubled pocket when Heathers hair cuts get over $100 so sounds like it's just as well you can get some shopping done too.

We can get a warm southerly here too, no clouds, seems sunny but it's the family room a/c. Oh! and the lights on......

Alex,

Thanks for that. I am not sure it is the right one but need to check out a few. The one we had to try was really good and tore across between the fibres sounding like it was perforated. It unrolled from the outside like the normal kitchen paper but did not fall apart when it got wet.

The wheel carrier was built on the back of the box as part of the unit, we just specified we wanted two rather than one. All done in Warragul in Victoria, the manufacturer is listed with our members rig. He told me last week he is pretty flat out as the boxes are selling themselves. He advertises in the magazines but I think will be relaxing that.
Cheers,

Got some right in front of me, use it at work. I just asked the storeman, he said we source it from Blackwoods, made by Kimberley Clarke.

Well I suppose you could call it that but the official name is ROAR, comes in a roll or seperate sheets....white or blue.....every 4x4 should have a roll, bloodly good stuff.

Absorbent, reinforced 4 ply wiper with a scrim netting offering superior wet strength. Ideal for food or industrial manufacturing applications.

Ray and Baz,

Thanks for that, it was really good for cleaning plates and pans and all and seemed to be a major water saver too when we had access to some. Since you put up the posting Heather has found it at their site and we now know where we can access it,

Baz, been trying to do a good graphic of an exploder in action here. Easy to get it to disintergrate ;-)
Cheers,
