There are a few key considerations when deciding whether your business should buy wipes in bulk:
- What is the maximum volume of wipes you could order each time, and do you have enough storage space?
- What are the lead times of the disinfectant wipe manufacturer or distributor, and does ordering in bulk impact this?
- What cost savings will you get by bulk buying your wipes?
- Is there a support team available to help you if required? Will they be able to help you manage stock and schedule deliveries?
How to buy with Uniwipe

Bactericidal wipes kill bacteria and a Virucidal wipes kill viruses. Often, if a product is only labelled as antibacterial it will not have a proven virus kill rate. Our Antibacterial & Virucidal wipes are tested to kill both bacteria and enveloped viruses like SARS-CoV-2.
EN codes on packaging certifies the products are tested and conform to European Standards of effectiveness. There are many different EN standards for different tests against various bacteria, viruses and fungi.
EN standards are required for biocidal products – products with a substance designed to kill germs and bacteria – in order to prove their effectiveness. Products with EN standards give assurance that their performance is tested with verified and recognised methods.
All our wipes are professionally tested in regulated independent laboratories to European standards, and conform to the highest standards available. EN14476, for example, is the test for enveloped viruses including SARS-CoV-2 – our antibacterial wipes are effective in just 30 seconds.
You should disinfect as often as possible, especially high traffic or communal use areas. Coronavirus for example can live on hard surfaces for days. High touch surfaces such as countertops, door handles, bathroom fixtures, toilets, computers, keyboards and phones should be cleaned regularly throughout the day.
Bacteria are microscopic free living single celled organisms which can quickly reproduce on a contaminated surface – a surface contaminated with raw meat, for example, could have millions of bacteria per square centimetre. A kill rate of 99.999% will kill 100 times more bacteria than that of 99.9% kill rate. That’s why it’s so important to use products with proven kill rates of 99.999% to remove the maximum amount of bacteria possible.
When cleaning high traffic areas to avoid cross contamination, we recommend that you dispose of each wipe properly after using on a surface. This way you can be sure no germs are being transferred from one surface to another.
All of our wipes are alcohol free and gentle enough to be used around children, making them ideal for schools and nurseries.
SARS-CoV-2 is a virus from the coronavirus family of enveloped viruses, which causes the Covid-19 disease. It’s the first known coronavirus to transfer to humans and is the cause of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The name was chosen because the virus is genetically related to the coronavirus responsible for the SARS outbreak of 2003. While related, the two viruses are different.
Virus: Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2)
Disease: Coronavirus disease (COVID-19)
Uniwipe products are specifically formulated to be safe on a wide range of surfaces such as hard surfaces, leather and upholstery. As they are alcohol free, they are also safe to use on technology equipment, subject to manufacturers guidelines.
Whilst some wipes are specifically designed for use on certain surfaces, the Uniwipe range of products is suitable for use on all hard surfaces for cleaning and disinfecting.
Uniwipe products are dermatologically tested, so are certified safe on skin. We also have the Hand & Surface wipe specifically designed and tested for use on hands. If you are prone to irritation from similar products, we recommend you wear gloves whilst using them.
Our main production facility is at our Head Office in Scotland, and from there we ship all over the UK and across the globe. UK manufacturing has many benefits for our products and services, from supply chain management to quality control and speed of service.
All the Uniwipe wipes can be used for wiping tables, work surfaces and machinery in food areas, which should be rinsed prior to direct contact with food.
We also have the Catering Midi-Wipes which are specially developed for use in the catering & hospitality sector and are food area approved.
High traffic areas are places that are touched frequently throughout the day by different people. This can lead to easy transmission of germs and viruses. Common examples of high traffic areas would be door handles, light switches, shared technology, tables, chairs etc
It’s important to dispose of wipes correctly, which usually means putting them in the general waste bin. Never flush wipes – even so-called ‘flushable’ wipes cause serious problems in water and sewer systems further down the line, most notably resulting in the infamous ‘fat-bergs’.
Wipes should be disposed of responsibly and correctly to avoid cross contamination, general waste bins will normally be sufficient for general cleaning and disinfecting. In a medical environment please follow local trust regulations for waste and contaminated waste.
