However, regulatory norms were noticeably relaxed in 2003 after the advent of the rule known as EPA solvent contaminated industrial wipes or simply Wiper Rule. The implementation of the rule essentially excluded, though conditionally, the non-laundered wipes as well laundered from the definition of hazardous waste. This broadly provided a shot in the arm for the general purpose wipes market and, in particular, reduced the undue leverage that reusable shop towels had over disposable general purpose wipes.
