(2) At present, the commonly used disinfectant wet wipes are mainly composed of quaternary ammonium salts, low concentration alcohols and biguanides. Compared with the commonly used chlorine-containing disinfectants, they have low corrosion, low irritation, longer moisturizing time, better sterilization effect and better compatibility with equipment.

(3) The use of disinfection wet wipes can eliminate the misallocation of disinfection solution, and reduce cross infection caused by repeated use of dishcloths and immersion in disinfectant during cleaning and disinfection.

3. Questions to be paid attention to when selecting disinfecting wet wipes

(1) The sterilization spectrum should be targeted. Check the relevant test report of the product. If the test result of the product shows that it can kill Staphylococcus aureus, it can only indicate that the product is effective against Staphylococcus aureus, but not against all gram-positive bacteria including Staphylococcus aureus.

(2) Humidity can reach 0.6g/cm². This means the wet wipes are disinfecting a relatively large area.

(3) The material is good. The material should not only feel comfortable, but more importantly, there is no obstacle when releasing the disinfection factor. If the material selection is not good, it is easy to leave only water instead of disinfection factor in the process of wiping.

(4) Pay attention to the expiration date. The shelf life of ordinary wet wipes is between 6 months and 3 years, while the shelf life of medical disinfection wet wipes is about 2 years. Pay attention to the shelf life of disinfection wet wipes, and there will be no sterilization and disinfection effect after the expiration.
