Clean Sheets® manufacturing started in 1988 by Gary Holt in Morristown, Tn. While Gary worked for his father at Holt’s auto sales and body shop, Gary wanted to find a faster and cleaner way to replace cut-out squares of cardboard being used from semi-clean parts boxes. They used these to mix body filler, and hardener and other epoxy chemicals. After many months of research he found a special non-porous paper which would be made into a disposable, tear-away, 100-sheet pad.
