Sanitizer wipes that are free of alcohol use an ingredient called benzalkonium chloride (also referred to as BZK). BZK does not evaporate quickly like alcohol-based wipes. Hand Sanitizer wipes stay on the skin longer than an alcohol-based wipe which evaporates quickly. Another difference between the two types of wipes? Alcohol is very flammable; BZK is non-flammable.
Hand sanitizing wipes that do not contain alcohol are crafted with added emollients like aloe, leaving hands dry, non-tacky and soft. Alcohol wipes are very drying to the skin and can cause cracks. The more you use alcohol wipes on your hands, the more likely you are to experience a stinging effect from the alcohol getting into the dry cracks in your skin.
Sanitizing wipes contain other additives like benzalkonium chloride that provide protection from a variety of disease-causing germs. Thus, they are strengthened with the capacity to clean and sanitize high-touch surfaces like doorknobs, railings, desks, computer screens, handles, and the like.
However, care must be taken to make sure that the industrial-grade disinfectant wipe does not touch the eyes or mouth. These products must be strictly kept out of the reach of children.
On average, one disinfectant wipe can be used to clean 1 to 2 square feet of the surface.
In general, alcohol-free wipes contain various compounds that collectively help kill bacteria, some viruses and fungi. Such ingredients are then diluted in water in a certain concentration so that there is an optimum concentration to attain a perfect balance of killing germs while avoiding harmful effects to the skin.
These compounds kill germs in various ways, which include breaking down the wall of the bacteria by poking holes through the wall, dissolving the wall itself, and/or breaking the bonds that hold the wall together. Other compounds penetrate into the bacteria itself and impair the ability of the bacteria to make proteins (preventing survival) or the ability to replicate (cannot make more bacteria).
While these wipes are effective to sanitize hands, they do work on surfaces too. The wipes themselves are composed of textile materials for gentle every-day use. The wipes contain cellulosic fibers which are implemented to ensure high water retention and storage of the compounds. These fibers attract and retain dirt and germs to help clean surfaces that have been soiled and/or contaminated.
Disinfecting wipes are widely available and have been used for years to prevent or reduce transmission of germs and infections. Sanitizing wipes are very similar to disinfectant wipes, they just cannot make the same kill claims as disinfecting wipes, as they are not regulated by the EPA.
Disinfectant wipes also contain detergents which interestingly enough are strong enough to help dissolve the cell wall of most bacteria, but not too strong to down our skin.
For healthcare or hospital use, similar compounds are used; however, most often at stronger concentrations and as a result, gloves and protective eyewear are recommended when using hospital-grade wipes to prevent skin irritation and burns.
These various wipes also differ in the dwell time (how long does it take to work) and risk of skin allergies and irritation.
Sanitizing refers to reducing, not killing, bacteria, fungi and viruses on surfaces and skin vs disinfecting refers to killing the microscopic organisms. According to www.flu.gov, sanitizing lowers the number of germs on surfaces to a safe level, as judged by public health standards or requirements, while disinfecting removes bacteria and viruses completely. You sanitize a surface by cleaning or disinfecting to reduce the risk of spreading infection. In essence, sanitizing destroys all forms of microbial life and is used mainly in healthcare and laboratory settings.
Disinfecting kills germs on surfaces. Disinfecting works by using chemicals to kill germs on surfaces. This process does not necessarily clean dirty surfaces or remove germs. But killing germs remaining on a surface after cleaning further reduces any risk of spreading infection.
How we use sanitizing and disinfecting wipes appropriately ensures that we are, in fact, killing germs effectively. First, it is important to remove visible soil on the surface. For the majority of sanitizing wipes, the hard surface must remain wet for at least four minutes (10 minutes at best) to kill most bacteria, viruses and fungi. The most important thing is to let the surface dry before putting items on the surface.
There is no exact number for how much surface one disinfectant wipe covers. One wipe typically covers over one to two square feet of the surface you are wiping.
In general, when using wipes it is important to make sure the surface is appropriately cleaned and wet equally. If a wipe is used, it is recommended to not re-use a gently used wipe as it will dry out and when exposed to air, thereby rendering some compounds less active and less effective.
Wipes intended to control germs on inanimate surfaces (disinfect or sanitize) and wipes containing insect repellents are regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency. Wipes intended for cleansing objects in our homes, at work, the gym, and in public places are regulated by the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
