Frequently Asked QuestionsSee All FAQs
For our EPA-regulated products, such as <strongSani-Cloth®</strong> brand products, room temperature is defined as an average temperature of 25◦ C (77◦ F) and within a temperature range of 15◦ C to 30◦ C (59◦ F to 86◦ F). For some our FDA-regulated products, such as ,strong>Prevantics®>/strong> brand products, "controlled room temperature" indicates a temperature maintained thermostatically that encompasses the usual customary working environment of 20◦ C to 25◦ C (68◦ F to 77◦ F). SOURCE: USP 36-NF 31 General Notices and Requirements (August 1, 2013 First Supplements) Section 10.30.50. Room Temperature - "Room temperature" indicates the temperature prevailing in a working area. Section 10.30.60. Controlled Room Temperature
The contact time (also referred to as "treated time") listed on the <strong>Sani-Cloth</strong> product label is the total amount of time that it takes to inactivate ALL of the microorganisms listed on the product label. This time is typically referred to in minutes, and should be communicated to staff members that are utilizing the disinfectant. In most instances, the overall contact time listed on the product label will be achieved with one wipe. In certain geographies and also in settings where temperature, relative humidity, and air changes may vary, it is possible that the surface may not remain visibly wet. However, as long as the "treated" surface remains undisturbed for the contact time listed on the product label additional wiping would not be required to achieve the recommended contact time.
All of PDI's <strong>Sani-Cloth®</strong> brand Germicidal Disposable Wipes are EPA-Registered. <strong>Sani-Cloth</strong> AF3 wipes (EPA reg number 9480-9), Super <strong>Sani-Cloth</strong> wipes (EPA reg number 9480-4) and <strong>Sani-Cloth</strong> Bleach wipes (EPA reg number 9480-8) have an efficacy claim against Mycobacteria (i.e. Tuberculosis), qualifying these products as intermediate-level disinfectants. Each product exceeds the CDC's recommendations for cleaning and disinfection in healthcare facilities. <strong>Sani-Cloth</strong> Plus wipes (EPA reg number 9480-6) and <strong>Sani-Cloth</strong> HB wipes (EPA reg number 61178-4-9480) do not have an efficacy claim against Mycobacteria, which makes these products low-level disinfectants.
It is recommended that all high-touch surfaces be routinely cleaned and disinfected between uses, or anytime they become visibly soiled. The use of PDI's <strong>Sani-Cloth®</strong> brand disinfecting wipes are generally safe on computer keyboards and mice, however they are not intended for use on touchscreen monitors. PDI's <strong>Easy Screen®</strong> Cleaning Wipe was specifically developed for use on touchscreen monitors and equipment, and PDI performed extensive testing on touchscreen materials to confirm compatibility. Its 70% IPA formula is the most referenced formula in equipment manufacturer’s instructions for use. <strong>Easy Screen</strong> wipes are also compatible with polycarbonate, glass, aluminum silicate, acrylic, stainless steel and more! Always check with the equipment manufacturer for specific guidance on recommendations for cleaning and disinfecting.
<strong>Sani-Cloth</strong>wipes are available in EPA-Registered formulations that are approved and labeled for use on hard, non-porous toys. The products clean and disinfect in a one-step process, unless visibly soiled. Once disinfected, toys should be rinsed with potable water (tap water) to remove any residue and allowed to air dry. According to the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC), the recommended procedure for disinfecting toys is "toys should be cleaned/disinfected between patients, especially those that are visibly soiled, mouthed, or used by patients in isolation. Toys should be washed thoroughly; disinfected with a non-toxic, low-level disinfectant and air dried completely." Infection control experts recommend only washable toys for sharing. Stuffed animals and toys that cannot be cleaned and disinfected should not be shared.
