REVIEW: Clinitex Hard Surface Alcohol Disinfectant Wipes

Posted on 13th Jan, 2015 in Wet wipes by John Smith Tags:

Alcohol wipes

A clean environment is fundamental to good patient care. Clean equipment and surfaces help to prevent the spread of infection and give patients and employees peace of mind.

Our hard surface alcohol disinfection wipes have been used for years by some of the best in the healthcare industry. The NHS use these particular wipes on-contract and many other healthcare companies have followed in their footsteps, proving that they’re a great choice for the industry. They kill at least 99.999% of bacteria and leave no residue or smear on surfaces or equipment.

Clinitex Hard Surface Alcohol Disinfectant Wipes: The facts

  • The wipes contain a blend of 70% isopropyl alcohol and 30% de-ionised water
  • They have been tested to EN1276 and EN13727 and are effective against a range of bacteria including MRSA, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Enterococcus hirae, Listeria monocytogenes and Salmonella typhimurium
  • They’re tough and hardwearing due to the good quality materials used for their manufacture. Unlike some other alcohol wipes, they also don’t leave any fibre residue

Using Clinitex Hard Surface Alcohol Wipes

While our alcohol disinfectant wipes pack a lot of punch, they need to be used correctly to ensure maximum effectiveness. The following step-by-step guide has been devised for this purpose.

  • Wear the appropriate PPE, for example gloves that cover your hands and any bare skin around your wrists and lower arms
  • Once removed, use the wipes folded to give maximum cleaning power and strength. You can unfold and refold the wipes as often as you like for a cleaner wiper surface
  • Use the wipe slowly to ensure you clean every part of the surface well
  • Once you’ve wiped down a surface, it’s important to dispose of the wipe appropriately, rather than leaving it lying around or reusing it on a different surface. If the wipe dries out or gets excessively dirty during use, replace with a fresh wipe.

What’s great about these alcohol wipes is that they can be used on a huge range of surfaces and equipment. Surfaces like door handles, cabinets, tables and worktops can harbour a multitude of germs and bacteria. A simple and easy wipe with our alcohol wipes will get rid of any resting bacteria. Similarly, equipment like walking frames and telephones allow bacteria to thrive, and again, the wipes can be used on these sorts of equipment.
