Multiple rounds of the new crown epidemic have brought about huge changes in people's consumption habits, and disinfectant wipes have gradually become a daily necessity. Disinfection and cleaning are thought to be for safety and health and not just a chore. Manufacturers around the world are expanding the production of disinfecting wipes in a variety of ways, hiring new workers, and operating 24/7 to ramp up their efforts to increase production. Some factories have adjusted their product mix to focus on the production of disinfecting wipes to meet market demand.
Good hygiene is crucial to curtailing the spread of bacteria and viruses, such as coronavirus. This can include handwashing with soap and water, disinfecting hand washes, and disinfecting hand rubs such as alcohol-based hand sanitizers, foams, and gels. We all know that hand washing is the most effective way to eliminate bacteria and viruses, hand sanitizers contain 60 percent to 95 percent ethanol or isopropanol, which gives them the best germ-fighting capacity. But that doesn't work when we don't have faucets around us. In comparison, disinfectant wipes are the most convenient way to use them. When we take the bus, or subway, enter the elevator, and go shopping in the supermarket, we will inevitably come into contact with the virus. Timely cleaning and disinfection is particularly important during the epidemic, and you can easily solve the problem by simply taking out the disinfecting wipes in your bag.
When you stand by the shelf of the supermarket, you will see many brands of disinfectant wipes, there are different descriptions about it but you can never tell which is the really effective one. Before finding it, you need to know What makes the disinfectant wipes effective?
Much like liquid, gel, and foam sanitisers, it's imperative you use wipes with alcohol listed as the active ingredient. Alcohol-based hand wipes work by destabilizing the cells of viruses and bacteria, thereby destroying them and making them inactive. The percentage of alcohol must be greater than 60 percent and should be in the form of ethanol or propanol for it to be effective.
