What do you get when you combine a two-headed mop with a liquid cleaning wax? A superior wash product, according to Aero Cosmetics and WashWax.com, the two companies that are working together on the Wash Wax Mop.
The mop is a microfiber head with two sides mounted on an extendable pole that goes from three feet to six feet. Long-reach versions are available that go out to 12 feet. The two heads are meant to serve as separate wet and dry sides. The Wash Wax Mop system uses a cleaner wax that is sprayed on the aircraft and then wiped off. With the two-sided mop, the company says the process is more efficient.
WashWax.com says the cleaner is safe for every surface that is safe for water, including paint, plastic, and glass. The microfiber cloth was also designed not to scratch aircraft surfaces. It can be peeled off the mop head and thrown in the wash after use.
