The perfect back to school/back to work add-on for everyone this season because you’re choosing natural disinfecting wipes!
Several brands make natural pre-wet cloths for cleaning that still kill 99.99 percent of household germs. These wipes are safe for children, adults and pets. Botanical disinfects are made with essential oils that include thyme, oregano and lemongrass oils as well as citric acid to aid in cleaning. What Are the "Safer Choice" Labels on Some Disinfecting Wipes? Cleaning products with the Safer Choice labels meet the requirements of the U.S. Department of Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Design for the Environment Program. The agency reviews the ingredients in the products that contain volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and their pH level, which is the level of acid in the wipe's ingredients. High levels of pH can cause skin and eye irritations. How Do You Use Disinfecting Wipes? Cleaning will remove some germs, dirt and other unwanted items on surfaces, but, it won't kill all germs. Instead, it just reduces the spread of infections from germs. Disinfecting is the second step, and it kills germs. For greater results, clean and disinfect to sanitize surfaces. To disinfect surfaces, wipe and then allow about four minutes for it to dry before using it. Always throw away wipes that are soiled, never reuse them and don't use them on more than one surface.
