Cleaning is the removal of dirt and grime from surfaces and objects. Although cleaners don't typically carry any kill claims, cleaning is necessary before effective sanitizing or disinfecting can occur. Sanitizing is the significant reduction of bacteria to a safe level. Sanitizers are bactericidal, meaning they have kill claims against bacteria. Disinfecting is the destruction or irreversible inactivation of bacteria and viruses on surfaces. Disinfectants are bactericidal and virucidal, meaning they have kill claims against both bacteria AND viruses. A well-rounded hygiene strategy will include cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting.
WipesPlus Disinfecting Surface Wipes are on the EPA's List N and kill the COVID-19 coronavirus. WipesPlus No-Rinse Food Contact Multi-Surface Wipes are also on the EPA's List N and kill the COVID-19 coronavirus when used according to label directions for killing Norovirus.* *COVID-19 is caused by SARS-CoV-2, a novel coronavirus. WipesPlus No-Rinse Food Contact Multi-Surface Wipes kill similar viruses and therefore can be used against SARS-CoV-2 when used in accordance with the directions for use against Human Norovirus (Norwalk Virus) on hard, non-porous surfaces.
The shelf life for all of our wet wipes is 2 years.
Nope! No WipesPlus wipes contain bleach. Bleach is highly corrosive, has a very harsh smell, and can bleach fabrics and hard surfaces. Instead, WipesPlus disinfecting wipes contain quaternary ammonium chloride compounds, commonly known as "quat." Quat has excellent wide spectrum germ kill ability, has a good shelf life, has no odor, and is safe to use on most hard, non-porous surfaces.
The active ingredient in WipesPlus Disinfecting Surface Wipes and WipesPlus No-Rinse Food Contact Multi-Surface Wipes is quat. The active ingredient in WipesPlus Hand Sanitizing Wipes is alcohol. The active ingredient in WipesPlus Alcohol Free Sanitizing Wipes is Benzalkonium Chloride, or BZK.
