Disinfecting wipes have a germ-killing solution on them. They are designed to kill viruses and bacteria on hard surfaces like door handles, counters, desks, light switches, keyboards, and any high touch hard surfaces. They are generally not meant for soft surfaces like clothing or upholstery. The germ-killing solution on a disinfectant wipe is generally a chemical that is not meant to be used on your skin or on food but is effective on hard, non-porous surfaces. Look for wipes that contain chemicals that have been registered with Health Canada or the FDA, and be sure to read the label carefully, so you know what you are getting and how to use the wipes.
Sanitizing wipes or antibacterial wipes may be alcohol-based wipes for your hands, or they could be used as wipes for electronics and hard surfaces. Read the label to determine what type of wipe it is and to see a list of it is use’s.
Depending on what you are looking for, take the time to check the fine print on the package for uses and approvals of the disinfecting wipes and be sure to read the directions and warnings to know what is in the wipe and if you need to wear gloves to protect your skin when using the wipes, or whether the wipes are safe on skin.
