Let $S$ be a set.

Let $f, g: S \to S$ be idempotent mappings from $S$ to $S$.


$f \circ g = g \circ f$

where $\circ$ denotes composition.

Then $f \circ g$ is idempotent.


By Set of all Self-Maps under Composition forms Semigroup, the set of all self-maps on $S$ forms a semigroup under composition.

The result follows from Product of Commuting Idempotent Elements is Idempotent.
