Protecting and preventing the spread of germs is a year-round important protocol. Germs tend to be more prevalent in the fall and winter time, as cold and flu season begins, but the reality is that germs are always around. To prevent illness and the spread of illness, you should carry disinfecting items with you wherever you go.
In today's edition of Friday Favorites, we are spotlighting some of our favorite disinfecting products!
Microorganisms are a pervasive threat that can cause infections throughout a hospital. Sani-Cloth Plus is an alcohol-based, non-woven, surface disinfectant wipe that's effective against 15 different microorganisms, including serious threats like H1N1 Virus, MRSA, and Respiratory Syncytial Virus. Each wipe is saturated with 2,500 ppm of active quaternary ammonium chlorides, able to kill many viruses in 2-5 minutes. These hospital-grade disinfectant wipes are made for medical equipment and hard surfaces, and are safe enough to use on children's toys.
The Safetec Instant Hand Sanitizer Packets with Aloe, also come in handy for when children are on the go! This product is a hand antiseptic that is designed to kill germs and bacteria on the skin when soap and water isn't readily available. Small, individual packets make it easy for infection control, and allows children to carry them in their pockets wherever they go. They are lightly scented, also enriched with aloe to moisturize, and are made for single use to reduce risk of cross contamination!
Safetec SaniWash Antimicrobial Foaming Hand Soap is designed to thoroughly clean hands, and provides users with a fresh scent after they're finished. It contains PCMX antimicrobial solution, as well as aloe vera to moisturize the skin. This too reduces the risk of cross-contamination, and meets APIC and OSHA hand washing standards.
