Health & Safety Occupational Hygiene Product Scott Wipes

Scott® 24 Hour Sanitizing Wipes are registered with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for disinfecting against numerous strains of bacteria and viruses – including SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19 (*on hard, non-porous surfaces when used according to directions for use for disinfection, and are part of the EPA List N: Disinfectants for Use Against SARS-CoV-2. Not approved in California for use against SARS-CoV-2).

It is also the first wipe registered by the EPA to continuously kill 99.9 per cent of bacteria for 24 hours, even after dozens of touches. (*when used as directed, this product is effective for 24 hours against Staphylococcus aureus, Enterobacter aerogenes and Community-Associated Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus Bacteria).

“Scott® 24 is a surface wipe unlike any other,” said Julia Georgoff, general manager, Kimberly-Clark Professional North America. “Instead of ceasing to work after initial application, as traditional wipes do, our patented residual wipes provide continuous protection for 24 hours and have been rigorously tested to maintain antibacterial efficacy for this period of time.”

The wipes from Kimberly-Clark Professional received the 2021 Best Healthy Workplace Solution Award from CBRE Group, the world’s largest commercial real estate services and investment firm.
