Where do you use 70% Isopropyl Alcohol for Disinfection?
70% isopropyl alcohol upholds key requirements for use as a bactericidal in cleanrooms or medical facilities, but also for general purposes. 70% IPA/30% water solutions produce less vapor and odor, therefore reducing risks of toxic fumes or combustion.
70% IPA is not only less flammable but also offers a more economical price point for general wipe down and large-surface disinfection. Likewise, high-moisture alcohols evaporate slower and increase contact time without becoming immediately dry.
Is 70% Isopropyl Alcohol for Disinfection commonly used?
Saturated Isopropyl Alcohol wipes are the most common surface disinfectant within pharmaceutics, hospitals, or medical device manufacturing.
Cleanzwell Alcohol Sanitizing Wipes is a convenient single-use pouch that preserves the IPA and curbs evaporation when compared with those that comes in a pack of 30s that is required to be taken out and re-sealed back. This can lead to a faster evaporation as well as possible contamination and unhygienic.
Clean all hard surfaces. However, use with care: may degrade some types of plastics and enamels so test on a small spot first.

Does Cleanzwell Alcohol Sanitizer Wipes contains ingredient to protect from COVID-19?
Cleanzwell Alcohol Sanitizer Wipes is laboratory tested to kill 99.9% of bacteria or germs within 30 seconds. This applies to Pseudomonas aeruginosa (P. aeruginosa is a frequent cause of ventilator-associated pneumonia and urinary tract infection), Escherichia Coli (E. coli is by far the most common cause of bacterial diarrhea in diverse populations) Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus is the most dangerous of all of the many common staphylococcal bacteria. These gram-positive, sphere-shaped (coccal) bacteria often cause skin infections but can cause pneumonia, heart valve infections, and bone infections). However, we cannot confirm that the product is specifically effective against coronavirus, as the product has not been tested against this disease.

Why Is 70% the Most Effective Concentration of Isopropyl Alcohol for Disinfection?
Isopropyl alcohol, particularly in solutions between 60% and 90% alcohol with 10 – 40% purified water, is rapidly antimicrobial against bacteria, fungi, and viruses. Once alcohol concentrations drop below 50%, usefulness for disinfection drops sharply. Notably, higher concentrations of alcohol don’t generate more desirable bactericidal, virucidal, or fungicidal properties.
The presence of water is a crucial factor in destroying or inhibiting the growth of pathogenic microorganisms with isopropyl alcohol. Water acts as a catalyst and plays a key role in denaturing the proteins of vegetative cell membranes. 70% IPA solutions penetrate the cell wall more completely which permeates the entire cell, coagulates all proteins, and therefore the microorganism dies. Extra water content slows evaporation, therefore increasing surface contact time and enhancing effectiveness. Isopropyl alcohol concentrations over 91% coagulate proteins instantly. Consequently, a protective layer is created which protects other proteins from further coagulation.
Solutions > 91% IPA do kill bacteria, but sometimes require longer contact times for disinfection, and enable spores to lie in a dormant state without being killed. In this analysis, a 50% isopropyl alcohol solution kills Staphylococcus Aureus in less than 10 seconds, yet a 90% solution with a contact time of over two hours is ineffective.
