What is the difference between cleaning wipes and hospital-grade disinfectant wipes?
In medical settings, thorough cleaning and sanitation are essential for patient safety. Inadequately disinfected surfaces can pose a serious health risk for many patients. Hospital-grade disinfectants are chemical cleaning wipes that meet the criteria to disinfect (removes potentially harmful pathogens) on widely-used hospital surfaces.
Cleaning wipes are more commonly used in household or non-medical settings. While they may be able to clean surfaces, they are not proven to remove pathogens and are not to be used to replace hospital-grade cleaners.
Why do the percentages of Benzethonium Chloride and Isopropyl Alcohol matter in medical-grade disinfectant wipes?
Cleaning supplies made of 0.1% - 0.3% of benzethonium chloride have been proven to be effective for killing bacteria while remaining safe for contact with human skin. Benzethonium Chloride does not kill viruses.
Medical alcohol wipes containing 70% isopropyl alcohol or higher are considered to be medical-grade. Isopropyl alcohol is effective in killing bacteria, fungus, and some viruses on the hands and on surfaces at this concentration.
