English term or phrase: dry mops or drymops
Medical supply for clinical study... Full item description says:

zip bag 6x8, formalin label, 2 drymops

I have no other context and am very uncertain as to what a drymop might be. Anyone have a suggestion?

Thanks!!!

mopa para limpiar en seco
Explanation:
¡No te quiero robar la trauducción, Ana!
Es sólo un comentario pero no me cabe en el espacio para peer grade.
Dentro del material clínico que se utiliza en el hospital, se pueden solicitar mopas o fregonas específicas para limpiar en en seco (dry mops) o con agua, depnde un poco de las precauciones de asepsia que hay que tomar, ya que a veces no conviene dejar humedad que actúe como caldo de cultivo para gérmenes. Pero es simplemente eso, una fregona. :-)

Sorry, Ana! I've clarified the intended meaning of the "drymop" with the project manager for this study, and they've confirmed that a "drymop" in the above context(although it is very limited) is a small absorbent packet that is placed inside of the specimen collection bag to absorb spills and keep the inside of the bag dry. So they aren't referring to an actual mop at all. Drymop is just the name they gave it in English. I thank you all for your suggestions. I appologize for not clarifying the context before asking. I believe I'm going to translate drymop in this context as a "sobrecito blanco con material absorbente."

trapeador de piso


Explanation:
Sí, de verdad es un poco extraño, como que no encaja muy bien en el contexto ¿verdad? Sin embargo, viendo lo que es un:
"dry-mop" o "dry mop" o "drymop" en inglés, no parece ser otra cosa que un trapeador para el piso.
Un ejemplo:
"Limpie frecuentemente los pisos con un trapeador húmedo a fin de reducir el polvo con plomo. Lávese siempre muy bien las manos después de pasar el trapeador. Si ha estado lavando ventanas, pisos o paredes, o trabajando con la tierra del jardín, no olvide lavarse las manos."

Buena suerte y saludos de Oso ¶:^)

Mota


Explanation:
Probablemente se refiere a las motas utilizadas para limpiar las superficies que no se deben trapear por lo tanto se limpian en seco (pisos de duela, por ejemplo). Me imagino que dependiendo donde vivas, existe distinto nombre para este utensilio de limpieza.
Espero te sea de utilidad.
