Modern medicine highlights the importance on preventing diseases from spreading to healthy people. Many cleaning supplies are used for infection control and sometimes the terms sterilization and disinfection are used incorrectly. There are important differences between sterilization and disinfection. Sterilization is considered more powerful because sterilization aims to eliminate all living microorganisms. Disinfection is applying a chemical agent to destroy or inhibit the growth of harmful microorganisms.
Many disinfectant wipes are virucidal, bactericidal and fungicidal. Disinfectant wipes usually work within a relatively short time frame of 3-10 minutes. The efficacy and coverage varies by the product. It is important to select a disinfectant wipe that meets the needs of room; for example, a more comprehensive disinfectant wipe is needed for the operating room than the waiting room. Some disinfectant wipes are durable, towelettes pre-saturated in a disinfectant solution that is also available in a liquid bottle. An example of this is the CaviWipes disinfectant wipe and CaviCide disinfectant solutions.
