Universal Surface Wipes 100

The NHS' number 1 disinfectant wipe, used in 9 out of 10 NHS hospitals, now available for homes, schools and businesses. Kills 99.99% of bacteria and viruses from 20 seconds.

Clinell Universal Surface Wipes kill up to 10x more bacteria and viruses than standard household disinfectants. Unlike pure disinfectant wipes, Clinell Universal Surface Wipes clean whilst they disinfect, helping remove dirt and soiling whilst boosting their germ-killing power. They get to get to work right away, proving effective from only 20 seconds. Despite all that cleaning and killing power, they're skin-friendly, dermatologically tested and kind to surfaces.

Product code: BCW100

Effective against the COVID-19 virus in 30 seconds.
