User and patient comfort is very important; unlike other chlorine wipes, Clinell Clorox wipes are made with a proprietary odour-masking formula to create a subtle bleach scent that is comfortable for patients and staff. In a recent study 94% of patients reported being very satisfied with how well their rooms were cleaned with our wipes and only 9% of patients noticed the wipes odour.

Clinell Clorox wipes are extra-heavy, durable, will not easily tear or fall apart, and are designed for better cleaning power. Our wipes' substrate is 3x stronger and 30% heavier than leading competitors wipes. Less tearing ensures each wipe and tub lasts longer. Our tubs have been especially designed to be low splash when removing a wipe.

Q: Who are Clorox?

The Clorox Company is a global company manufacturing various food and chemical products based in California and is best known for its bleach product Clorox. The company dates back to 1913 and is the world leader in bleach (chlorine) disinfectant products.

Q: What is the active ingredient of Clinell Clorox Wipes?

Sodium hypochlorite at a concentration of 5200ppm which is equivalent to 0.52%. Bleach can be diluted 1:10 with water to obtain the 0.52% commonly used in hospitals and other healthcare facilities.

Q: Is Clinell Clorox corrosive?

The formulation has anticorrosive agents inside making it safe to use on all non porous surfaces and most equipment.

Q: What would happen if the wipes touched my skin directly?

Always wear gloves when using Clinell Clorox Wipes but should it accidentally touch your skin, do not worry. The majority of individuals will not feel anything if the wieps touches their skin. A small minority will get a tingling / burning sensation on their skin which may blanch in colour for a few minutes. Wash the hands with lots of water immediately and that is all that is required in most cases. If irritation persists then seek medical assistance.

Q: What happens if the chlorine touches my clothes?

While bleach is not fabric friendly, this is a 1:10 dilution so not as harsh as undiluted bleach . When applying, start away from your body and work toward yourself. If wiping up excess, start close to body and wipe away from self. Wipes cut down on the opportunity for bleach to get on clothes unlike chlorine tablets.

Q: Can resistance occur with this wipe?

No. Chlorine kills by oxidising the pathogens. This means it disrupts the cell membrane and disrupts metabolism. It has a very generalised mode of action which means no resistance will develop with this chemical.

Q: What has been done to mask the smell?

The majority of bleach users do not mind the smell of bleach and many associate the smell with cleanliness. Also the wipes have been diluted in comparison to bleach in laundry or dishwater. The Clinell Clorox formulation features an odour masking agent to minimise the smell.

Q: What products does this replace and what are the advantages?

Primarily Clinell Clorox will replace chlorine tablets that are very commonly used in hospitals. The advantages to using a chlorine wipe over a chlorine tablet is listed as follows: • Wipes are ready to use immediately whereas chlorine tablets require mixing daily. • Mixing errors can occur with chlorine tablets but the wipes offer a measured dose to prevent errors occurring. • Mixing requires documentation, labelling and is time consuming. Wipes are instantaneous. • Wipes have a detergent added to the mixture so the cleaning step is done at the same time. • With chlorine tablets some of the mix goes to waste where with wipes all of the chemicals are generally used. • Chlorine tablets are corrosive. Clinell Clorox wipes have anti-corrosive agents in the formulation. • Contact time with chlorine tablets is 10 minutes with the surface needing to be wet. With wipes it is 5 minutes for spores. • Clinell Clorox wipes have been formulated with odour inhibitors to make the smell more user friendly.

Q: using Clinell Clorox the equipment sometime looks dirty. Why is that?

When the wipes are used and the liquid evaporates, sometimes there is some salt and detergent left behind forming a residue. The best way to manage a residue is to prevent it. If you start to see a build up of residue just remove it by wiping the product off while it is still wet/ damp.
