To promote the importance of hand hygiene and in an effort to reduce absenteeism, PDI® introduces Sani-Hands for Kids Antimicrobial Alcohol Gel Hand Wipes. Available for use in schools, day cares, camps, children’s hospitals, physician and dental offices, homes, cafeterias, restaurants, and recreational facilities, they help reduce the risk of cross-contamination and infection. This parent- and kid-friendly product contains emollients such as aloe, glycerin, and Vitamin E to minimize the drying effects of alcohol and moisturize the skin. The wipes are more effective than gels because of the natural friction caused by the wiping action, an important function that rub-in alcohol hand washes alone cannot achieve.

Easy and fun to use, Sani-Hands for Kids are proven to kill 99.99% of germs, and are available in 220- and 135-count canisters and individual “on-the-go” packets. For more information, visit
