All our Uniwipe products conform to this guide for speed and efficiency.

EN14476 is the EN standard that confirms a product is effective against enveloped viruses. It’s become popular since the Covid-19 pandemic as the SARS-CoV-2 virus is an enveloped virus – so products tested to the EN14476 standard are proven effective against the virus. All our antibacterial wipes are tested to EN14476, meaning they’re a great tool to stop the spread of Covid-19.

In hospitals and medical environments, there are areas where the risk of infection spreading to people – from surfaces or other people – is particularly high. These are known as High Risk Areas, and include the likes of busy wards, operating theatres and dentist rooms. According to the BICSc colour-coding system, the cleaning products used in these areas should be yellow – for use in high infection risk areas such as medical environments for cleaning and disinfecting.

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.

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.

The British Institute of Cleaning Science (or BICSc for short) is an independent educational body in the cleaning industry, which sets out best practices for the industry.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Our Clothwipe range of wipes is perfect for use on floors due to their huge size, and they hold so much moisture. This means they’re great for cleaning large areas and their high absorbency capacity means they can soak up spills.
