Benefits of Disinfecting Household Surfaces
Regular cleaning products do a good job of removing soil, but only disinfectants or disinfectant cleaners (also known as antibacterial cleaners) kill the germs that can cause many illnesses. Surfaces like kitchen and bathroom counters, door knobs, toilet seats and children's toys may be contaminated with bacteria even when they're not visibly soiled. Germs can be spread to other surfaces on dirty cleaning cloths and sponges. Products that claim to kill germs must meet efficacy requirements and guidelines established by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and must be registered with EPA and carry an EPA registration number on their label. In order for surfaces to be effectively disinfected, the instructions on product labels need to be followed carefully.
What is seasonal influenza (flu)?
Seasonal influenza, commonly called "the flu," is caused by influenza viruses, which infect the respiratory tract (i.e., the nose, throat, lungs). Unlike many other viral respiratory infections, such as the common cold, the flu can cause severe illness and life-threatening complications in many people. The best way to prevent seasonal flu is by getting a seasonal flu vaccination each year. In the United States, on average 5% to 20% of the population gets the flu; more than 200,000 people are hospitalized from seasonal flu-related complications, and; about 36,000 people die from seasonal flu-related causes. Some people, such as older people, young children, pregnant women, and people with certain health conditions, are at high risk for serious flu complications.
The 2009-2010 flu season could be worse. There is a new and very different flu virus spreading worldwide among people called 2009 H1N1 flu. This virus may cause more illness or more severe illness than usual.
What are the symptoms of the flu?
Influenza is a respiratory illness. Symptoms of the flu include fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headache, chills and fatigue. Some people may also have vomiting and diarrhea.

These wipes are very gentle on your skin and nose. I have Fibromyalgia and am not able to use chemicals- and this one works good! I use them for my counters and bathrooms.
I purchased these for my children't classroom instead of buying other disinfecting wipes that use chemicals. The smell is different, but I don't think it's horrible...some something you have to get used to. I think they are just as effective as other wipes. I wish the price was a little more competetive, but I would rather have safe kids than worry about a few $$.
I love these wipes. They clean my stainless counter top very well and I love the fact that they are non toxic!
works well and am happy to use it everywhere and not worry about leaving chemical residue on surfaces..........if i can do it green and it works great then why would i use a wipe that is toxic?
These are great!! I use them to clean up around my pet's food bowl and like that I don't have to worry about exposing him to harmful chemicals!
Fabulous cleaning product! So very gentle and safe, but very, very effective. This is great to have on-hand, too, whenever you need to 'blitz' your home for unexpected company :). Note: I tried GreenWorks for some time and they made me SICK every time I used them. They may be 'green' for the globe in certain ways, but they are definitely NOT green for humans!
Work great and smell great!
Clean well and very convienent.
I really hoped to find a antural replacement of the bottle of "wet wipes" I keep handy in my car -- but these smell awful -- like rancid vegetable oil! I simply threw them away.
I can use these disinfecting wipes without triggering an allergic reaction. Also don't have to worry about poisoning my cat as with other chemical disinfecting products. And they clean as well if not better than other wipes I have used.
A little smelly but healthy and works!
Our go-to bathroom wipe. A necessity with teenage sons. Plus it's less harmful for the environment than other wipes, which is important to me since I don't really like the concept of throw away wipes anyway.
Our home will never be without these wipes!
Much better than store brands.
I was surprised at how big the container was. I got a lot. They smell good and I feel better about using them. My daughter uses the regular brands constantly on ewverything.
Great non toxic disinfecting wipes.
Works great! Smells great! Really handy.
These clean and disinfect nicely, and the fragrance is wonderful.
I love these wipes for quick cleaning! Being a multiple cat owner, I have many "clean ups" a day. I am disinfecting without harming my pets. I don't have to worry about using this product around them. Some people say they don't like the smell. It doesn't bother me. It does not linger and my house is always clean and smells nice. I would highly recommend. I love the large, 70 wipes size too!!
