The new smaller canister holds a 35-count roll of 12- x 12.5-inch sheets of Kimtech Prep wipers for bleach, disinfectants and sanitizers. These wipers are engineered to be compatible with quaternary amine and bleach disinfectant solutions, maintaining the concentration of actives released to the surface at target concentration levels.
“Infection control practitioners, environmental services professionals, nurses and others responsible for reducing the incidence of healthcare-acquired infections, may be surprised to learn that traditional methods of surface sanitation may not work as expected,” says Valerie Williamson, category manager, Kimberly-Clark Professional. “Recent studies have found, for example, that when cotton rags or cellulose-based wipes were used in combination with an open bucket of disinfectant solution, the amount of germ-killing actives released to the surface was significantly reduced from the original concentration in the bucket. These same studies found that Kimtech Prep wipers for bleach, disinfectants and sanitizers, used in combination with the enclosed Wettask refillable wet wiping system, delivered a much higher concentration of disinfectant actives to the surface.”
