Potential Exposure to Metals in Laundered Shop Towels

If you’re using laundered shop towels in your facility, you might be exposing yourself to elevated levels of heavy metals, levels that exceed what’s allowed in drinking water. Apparently the problem is getting worse and worse. The latest study, commissioned by Kimberly-Clark, found “that ‘clean’ shop towels sampled from 26 different industrial sites were significantly more contaminated with heavy metals than in 2003.”

Because the supposedly “clean” towels contain heavy metals and workers using them end up with heavy metals on their hands, they end up ingesting them.
