Scott® 24 Hour Sanitizing Wipes – Kimberly-Clark Professional’s pre-saturated wipes with a patented formulation – has been named the winner of the 2021 World of Wipes (WOW) Innovation Award at the WOW International Conference. A team of technical specialists from The Association of the Nonwoven Fabrics Industry ( INDA ) chose Scott® 24 over 23 submissions. The product was honored for its innovation across the entire wipes value chain.
Scott® 24 Hour Sanitizing Wipes are registered with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for disinfecting against numerous strains of bacteria and viruses – including SARS-CoV-2. These pre-saturated wipes quickly disinfect and maintain surface sanitization against bacteria for a full 24 hours, even after multiple touches.
Most surface disinfectants and sanitizers work but only for the moment. As soon as the surface is touched again, germs are back in action.
Scott® 24 Hour Sanitizing Wipes, engineered with Kimberly-Clark’s proprietary base sheet technology in combination with the company’s patent-protected durable antimicrobial coating, kill 99.9% of bacteria, even after multiple touches. The wipes are delivered through a portable dispenser for ease of use and offer a convenient all-in-one application to help save time.
The pandemic created a fundamental change in people’s standards and expectations for cleaning,” said Susan Gambardella, President, Kimberly-Clark Professional North America. “Our goal is to exceed their expectations and empower them with an antibacterial wipe unlike anything else on the market. Grounded in science and backed by our unique technological capabilities, Scott® 24 Hour Sanitizing Wipes deliver peace of mind for 24 hours, providing confidence between cleans. This award is a testament to our culture of innovative spirit and creativity as we lead by example by providing much-needed solutions to our customers.”
