What is the difference between CaviWipes and CaviWipes1?
CaviWipes1 (developed second) have 1 minute kill time while CaviWipes (the original) has 3 minutes kill time. However, some offices do not prefer to use CaviWipes1 because the higher alcohol content may damage certain countertops. Both CaviWipes and CaviWipes1 are bleach-free and fragrance-free.

When using surface disinfection wipes, be sure to Disinfect AFTER Cleaning, not just while cleaning. If there is gross debris on the surface, use a wipe to pre-clean and remove all bacteria and debris. Dispoe of the wipe and then use a new, fresh wipe to disinfect the surface now that's clean.

Tip: Pull out wipes in canisters by pulling straight up and then tear at a 90 degree angle. This will result in a quick, clean tear on your wipe.
