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

All of our wipes are alcohol free and gentle enough to be used around children, making them ideal for schools and nurseries.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Our range of antibacterial wipes are designed to evenly distribute the cleaning agent onto a surface, ensuring a sufficient coverage for killing germs and bacteria. If cloths and sprays are used, it can result in uneven coverage and therefore reduce the effectiveness of the product. There’s also a much higher chance of cross-contamination or spreading germs around, as the same cloth is used for multiple surfaces, rather than the single-use benefits of disposable wipes.

A big problem with tubs is the fact that people end up using many more wipes than necessary to get the job done – they are on a perforated roll and users tend to pull out 2 or 3 at a time instead of just the 1 they need, all the wipes in the tub dry out if the lid is left open and the top wipe is often dry because it’s been poking through the top.
There is also a high level of waste created, both in the immediate and long term – initially in a working environment, the tubs can be easily cracked or the lid popped open, causing the wipes to dry out. And an empty tub is the same size as a full one, creating more waste than a pack.

In the bigger picture, this also translates into more waste at landfill – not an issue with packs as they’re recyclable, and even if they are sent to landfill, they’re made using over 70% less plastic than tubs. Our specially designed packs with moisture-locking lids keep the packs wet even with the lid left open, and the wipes are z-folded to dispense 1 at a time.

Whether you’re a distributor looking to resell our products, a large corporation looking to partner with a reputable manufacturer, or are just looking to buy a pack for yourself, we’re here to make it as easy as possible to get your hands on quality wipe solutions.

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.

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.

Antibacterial wipes are only effective when they distribute the correct amount of cleaning agent to the surface – they should be moist and fresh out of the pack in order to work properly. Dry wipes are unable to dispense any cleaning agent, so will not kill any germs. Surfaces should also be left to naturally air dry for at least the stated contact time, otherwise sanitising wipes are not guaranteed to be effective.
