Large body wash wipes reduce the risk of infection before surgery and when bathing isn’t an option

When patients need their skin to be cleaned before surgery or face mobility issues that make bathing too challenging, chlorhexidine body wipes should be your go-to alternative. 

PDI Hygea Chlorhexidine Wash Cloths are designed to help you maintain hygiene levels in multiple ways:

  • The disposable, single-use antibacterial wipes for skin are pre-dosed with a chlorhexidine gluconate solution designed to kill bacteria and fungi.
  • The cloths remove the risk of transmission associated with strip washing using a basin which can always contain residual germs from previous use.
  • No rinsing or drying is required. In fact, the chlorhexidine solution leaves a residue that remains active on the skin after use. 
  • The convenience offered by using the wipes promotes dignity for patients and even encourages patients in independent cleaning, all of which increases the frequency and thoroughness of cleaning.

Using these medical antiseptic wipes will make tasks significantly easier, safer, and more efficient for staff. Vulnerable patients will also feel more comfortable and secure. PDI offers some of the best antibacterial body wipes for an affordable price. Buy wholesale body wipes here: 36 packs with eight cloths in each pack.

What are the ingredients in chlorhexidine wipes?

The antiseptic body wipes are formulated with 2% w/v chlorhexidine gluconate. Chlorhexidine is an antiseptic and disinfectant agent used to prepare skin for surgery and sterilise surgical instruments. As a cation-active compound, chlorhexidine stays on the skin, meaning it continues to be effective after wiping the skin with a wipe.

As an antiseptic, chlorhexidine is effective against harmful bacteria, yeasts, and fungi. There is even research to suggest that it is better than povidone-iodine for clean surgery. 

Chlorhexidine gluconate is also commonly used in mouthwash to treat gum disease and as such, it is very gentle and non-irritating in low concentrations, including the concentration used in PDI’s body wipes.

Who needs body cleansing wipes?

The best body wipes for men are larger in size to cover the whole body and ensure a thorough wash without causing unnecessary distress to the patient. PDI Hygea Chlorhexidine Wash Cloths are ideal men’s body wipes, being 300 x 200mm in size each.

Women's Body Wipes

The wipes are generously sized and gentle on the skin, making them some of the best women’s adult body wipes.

The Best Body Wipes for Elderly

If you’re looking for the best adult body wipes or the best body wipes for seniors, PDI Hygea personal cleansing washcloths are an excellent choice. They make the cleaning process faster and easier for both the patient and that caregiver. They eliminate the need to carry heavy bowls of water and soap to patients, and the easy flow wrapper keeps wipes fresh, clean, and moist until they need to be used. 

Chlorhexidine Wipes for Surgery

Healthcare professionals use chlorhexidine wipes in hospitals to prepare patients during pre-admission to ICU to reduce the risk of infection. Chlorhexidine wipes before surgery are used to help prevent infection at the surgical site, thanks to the antibacterial properties of chlorhexidine gluconate.

Chlorhexidine skin wipes are not only for use in healthcare settings. Use these as body wipes when you can’t shower on trips, travelling, or during sports events. Taking a pack of wipes on the go means you can freshen up without the hassle of finding somewhere with running water.

How should antibacterial body wipes be used?

These are large body wipes for adults which means one can be used to clean the whole body easily. The wipes can be warmed to make washing more comfortable. Use one wipe per part of the body. The order to clean the body is:

  1. Neck and torso
  2. Shoulders and back
  3. Left arm and armpit 
  4. Right arm and armpit
  5. Left leg and foot
  6. Right leg and foot
  7. Buttocks
  8. Groin and perineum

Rather than rubbing, use the wet wipes for cleaning the body gentle with sweeping strokes. Use the ‘s technique’ on parts of the body with a larger surface area, such as on the back, to reduce the chance of going over a part you’ve already cleaned.

There’s no need to rinse or dry the skin after using these personal washcloths. They leave an invisible residue on the skin, which continues to fight germs after use, but this doesn’t feel uncomfortable.
