In a clinical setting, microbial contamination is unacceptable. However, more often than not hospital, school, and laboratory team members have too much to do to keep up with elaborate cleaning and sanitation practices. That’s what draws them to Pre-saturated IPA Alcohol wipers (Wet Wipes), which help these teams save time, money, and sanity while maintaining strict sanitation compliance.

Not sure what you’re missing out on? Here are five reasons you should use pre-saturated IPA Alcohol wipers:

1. Consistency
Pre-saturated wipers deliver an unprecedented level of reliable liquid delivery 

Different staff members use various levels of sanitizer when using spray bottles and dry wipers. Pre-saturated wipers, on the other hand, have the same amount of alcohol applied to the wiper in every use. There’s no need to measure, guess, or take extra steps. Take comfort in knowing that pre-saturated wipers have been in the market for over 10 years as trusted and accepted solution.

2. Ease-Of-Use
Sanitation doesn’t get easier than pre-saturated wipers 

Pre-saturated IPA Alcohol wipers come in simple, easy to use packaging (think along the lines of a tub of Clorox wipes). Staff members simply grab, sanitize, and go, without having to juggle two products (a disinfectant spray in a bottle and a separate dry wiper). The result? A product that is easy to open and close and that won’t make a mess.

3. Storage Regulatory Compliance
Pre-saturated wipers save you from storage issues

If your organization uses alcohol by itself (rather than pre-saturated wipers), it must follow local, state, and federal regulations for storage in a flammable containment area. With pre-saturated wipers, however, you often don’t have to worry about this. Because Pre-saturated wipers are normally considered solids (instead of a pure liquid), there are fewer products to store, regulations to worry about, and paperwork to manage.    

4. VOC Reduction
Pre-saturated wipers can reduce workplace VOCs

Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are chemicals that easily become vapors or gasses. Isopropyl Alcohol (IPA) is a VOC. When you spray a disinfectant in your workplace, you release alcohol into the air. With a pre-saturated wiper, however, there is very little VOC released, which means that your workplace will benefit from a reduced level of VOC production.

5. Stocking Simplified
Stocking pre-saturated wipers is easier than stocking traditional solutions

Organizations that use the traditional combination of dry wipers and disinfectant spray have to track, manage, and order several different products to stock their workplace. You also have to balance the amount of solution you have versus the dry wipers you have, predicting how much of each to order and have on hand. By comparison, pre-saturated IPA Alcohol wipers are easy to purchase. You only have to order and track one item to make sure your staff members are covered.
