Alcohol pads are generally used to remove oils and residues from the skin. The most common use is to clean the skin area before injection. Because alcohol can kill or stop the growth of bacteria on the skin, thereby preventing bacterial skin infections caused by small incisions or abrasions.
Many people will wonder how much alcohol concentration has the best bactericidal effect. You need to understand why alcohol has a bactericidal effect. Alcohol enters the bacteria and solidifies the bacteria’s proteins, killing the bacteria. When the alcohol concentration is high (such as 95%), a film will be formed on the outside of the bacteria. Alcohol cannot enter the bacteria, and it cannot kill the bacteria. Therefore, when alcohol is used for disinfection, the higher the concentration, the better. The best bactericidal effect is the use of 75% alcohol.
Alcohol is flammable, especially this high concentration alcohol. Directly using alcohol spray for disinfection is likely to cause fire, and alcohol prep pads is relatively safe. The alcohol cotton flakes we provide are single-piece packaging, very clean, you can carry them with you to wipe the items you need to use.
