The Difference Between Sanitary Wipes And Disinfecting Wipes

Oct 28,2022 / / Author: ShengKui

Nowadays, there are a wide variety of disinfection and sterilization products, and consumers often encounter confusion in the process of purchasing. Among them, the difference between disinfectant wipes and sanitary wipes is only two words, but there is a big difference, and it is easy for consumers to confuse these two products.

The difference between sanitary wipes and disinfecting wipes

Sanitary wet tissue paper is based on non-woven fabrics, fabrics, wood pulp composite cloth, wood pulp paper, etc., with the appropriate amount of raw materials such as production water and disinfectant added. It has a cleaning and sterilizing effect and is suitable for hands, skin, mucous membranes, and ordinary surfaces.

According to the hygiene industry standard, the killing rate of sanitary wipes against Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus should be ≥90%. If it is indicated that it has a bactericidal effect on fungi, the killing rate of Candida albicans should be ≥90%; if it is indicated that it has a killing effect on other microorganisms, the killing rate of corresponding microorganisms should be ≥90%.

Medical disinfection wipes, for which there is no relevant industry standard, are made of non-woven fabrics and add main disinfection ingredients. They are mainly used for the disinfection of surfaces in medical institutions, surfaces of equipment and instruments, or bed units in hospitals.

Since the purpose of using wet wipes in medical institutions is to remove and kill pathogenic microorganisms that may cause nosocomial infections, medical disinfection wipes must be selected. At present, most of disinfectant wipes are mainly composed of quaternary ammonium salts, which can reduce the possibility of cross-infection and secondary pollution caused by traditional cleaning and disinfection of wipes after use, and have the characteristics of one-step cleaning and disinfection. In the process of using disinfectant wipes, it is necessary to ensure that "one item, one towel, one bed and one towel".

In general, there are obvious differences between disinfectant wipes and sanitary wipes. The former is mainly used for disinfection of nosocomial infections in medical institutions, while the latter can be used in daily life, and the killing rate of bacteria should not be less than 90%. In the process of purchasing, consumers need to pay attention to distinction, especially when shopping online, they should pay more attention to product information.
