Increased compliance with cleaning and disinfection practices may be due to the ease of use of disposable cleaning wipes, including the convenience of obtaining new wipes when they become dry or soiled.

Adherence to cleaning and disinfection measures in A&E, operating rooms, and outpatient departments is known to be suboptimal, which may increase the risk of pathogen transmission.

Significant increases in compliance when using disposable cleaning wipes may help reduce healthcare-related infections, which in itself may offset the cost of cleaning wipes.

Gone are the days of cloth towels, and like old-fashioned handkerchiefs, disposable paper towels have become the standard and hygienically acceptable method of blowing your nose. Towels and buckets are unhygienic, more expensive, and less compliant, and can be replaced with disposable cleaning wipes.
