Hype-Wipe Bleach towelettes and Bleach-Rite Spray are ready-to-use, EPA registered hospital-grade disinfectants containing a 1:10 dilution of bleach and are stabilized for an extended shelf life. Both the wipe and spray products are approved for a one-minute kill time against CRKP. Features include:
- Approved to kill other multi-drug resistant organisms, including acinetobacter baumannii, E-coli ESBL (a bacteria that produces ESBL enzymes that breaks down antibiotics), and Vancomycin-resistant enterococcus faecium (VRE).
