Health-care professionals can now count on Sani-Cloth Plus and Super Sani-Cloth germicidal disposable wipes to kill hepatitis C virus (HCV) when used as directed, in addition to the hepatitis B virus (HBV), respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) and other viruses and bacteria. These wipes disinfect, clean, and deodorize hard, non-porous surfaces in health-care settings.

Infection transmission of HCV in health-care facilities is possible if infection-control techniques or disinfection procedures are inadequate and contaminated equipment is shared among patients. Patient care areas are highly susceptible to cross-contamination, and both Super Sani-Cloth and Sani-Cloth Plus are presaturated with the correct amount of germicidal solution needed to clean, disinfect, and deodorize hard non-porous surfaces and outside surfaces of equipment such as carts, counters, bracket tables, and patient monitoring and diagnostic equipment.

Available in large (6 in. x 6.75 in.) and extra large (8 in. x 14 in.) wipe sizes, both Sani-Cloth Plus and Super Sani-Cloth come in 160-count and 65-count, new double-ribbed canisters designed for strength and to fit into Sani-Bracket®, a special wall and mobile equipment mounting system.
