MELAMINE PADS

These pads are made using open-cell melamine foam that is laminated to non-woven material made of 100% recycled polyester fibres. The melamine pad miraculously cleans floors without removing the finish of the floor. They are mainly used on shallow grouted floors and for cleaning any heavily soiled floors. They are also excellent for removing stubborn black marks.
