BZK Wipes (Benzalkonium Chloride Antiseptic wipes) are an essential part of any First Aid Kit.
Sanitization is of paramount importance when it comes to caring for our bodies, especially in disaster scenarios. When soap and water is not available to clean wounds or wash hands these BZK towelettes will handle the tasks of killing germs and preventing infection. As a disinfectant, BZK works by disrupting the pathogen’s membrane and is effective against gram-positive and some gram-negative bacteria; enveloped, or lipophilic, viruses, yeasts, fungi and protozoa. Even if you have access to soap and water, a sterile antiseptic won’t hurt- infection can come from the smallest neglected scrape!
Individually wrapped, these wipes are a single use item that sanitizes without the risk of cross-contamination and without mess. BZK Wipes pack small and are perfect for home use or travelling, and fit in pockets, wallets, and bags. They are alcohol-free and clean without the sting! They are very handy and safe for cleaning out small injuries such as scrapes, cuts and abrasions and even minor burns before bandaging. Since they are alcohol-free – they are ideal for those with skin sensitivities as well and won’t dry out your skin. Unlike Hydrogen Peroxide, BZK wipes will not damage the top layer of skin or slow down healing.
In addition to their use in first aid and wound care, consider packing BZK wipes as an Everyday Carry item. You can use them to sanitize public surfaces in a pinch! They will sanitize any surface, so consider using them on high touch point surfaces such as office equipment or toilet seats to sterilize, or for other cleaning and disinfection purposes.
