During this challenging time where we are all affected by the Covid-19 situation, I am also grateful that Diamond Wipes produces products such as Steridol Wipes, that help others fight the spread of diseases like the coronavirus, and Hero Wipes, which help protect our first responders from harmful toxins, carcinogens and bloodborne pathogens. These products, along with many other disinfecting and sanitizing products that Diamond Wipes produces, will help consumers feel better about providing a safe, healthy environment for their family during this unprecedented period we are all experiencing."
