Common Questions

IPA or Isopropyl alcohol wipes can be used for a variety of applications depending on the amount of alcohol contained in them. A wipe with a lower concentration of around 70% can be used for general cleaning and act as a disinfectant for hands, surfaces, tools or objects in environments such as kitchens, consultation rooms and laboratories. Products with higher levels of 90% or greater are often used in more industrial environments, such as welding wipes, where the increased concentrations act as a powerful degreaser.

Yes, the typical alcohol concentration for wipes to act as a disinfectant is 60%-90% and kill 99% of germs and bacteria. However, lower concentrations in this range are seen as more effective as they take longer to evaporate,  increasing their antibacterial sanitizing effect.

Both types have similar disinfectant properties as surface cleaners, although those made from Isopropyl alcohol are also antiseptic.  Ethanol is safer than Isopropyl if ingested, and is also less drying on hands and skin. Therefore, Ethanol wipes may be the better choice for catering and food preparation environments or where regular skin contact is possible.
