Oct 17, 2020

Wet wipes are wet tissues used to wipe the skin. The wet wipes on the market can be roughly divided into two categories: one is that it has been disinfected, but cannot disinfect other items. It contains skin care ingredients and can only be used for skin moisturizing. The other type is disinfection wipes that are not only disinfected themselves, but also can disinfect other items. They can be used to disinfect or sterilize skin abrasions and scratches. When buying wet wipes, be sure to see the function and positioning of the wet wipes.


The prerequisite for the disinfection of wipes is to choose disinfection wipes to use. For many wet wipes on the market, most of them are ordinary wet wipes or sanitary wipes, which are completely different in definition from disinfectant wipes. Therefore, we must choose the wet wipes reasonably and correctly before use. Let us learn about the professional classification of wet wipes and how to choose the right wipes.

Choose wet wipes as needed

1. Ordinary cleaning, home or going out, you can choose ordinary wet wipes to meet the cleaning purpose;

2. For those who have relatively high requirements and hope to have a certain sterilization effect after wiping, you can choose sanitary wipes, but sanitary wipes can only have a certain antibacterial effect. After wiping, they will have a sterilization effect after a period of time. Can not achieve the effect of disinfection;

3. For wet wipes with special requirements that can be quickly sterilized and have a disinfecting effect, then disinfectant wipes must be selected, which can be more thoroughly sterilized, mainly to prevent sudden flu.


Therefore, cleaning, sanitation, and disinfection can be achieved on the premise of a reasonable selection of wet wipes. Not all wet wipes have the same effect. This is a misunderstanding
