Antibacterial wipes are ideal for use in any worker setting, they can be used on a variety of surfaces, are portable, properly diluted with the right chemicals, and easy to use.
Surfaces and objects that should be cleaned regularly include:

o Surfaces of shared equipment such as power tools;
o Keyboards, particularly before you use another person’s keyboard;
o Telephone buttons and handles, particularly before you use another person’s telephone;
o Handles of kitchen equipment like coffee pots and microwaves;
o Benches and counters;
o Books or other materials which are shared.
Research has shown that the average desk is up to 400 times dirtier than a regularly used toilet seat. One good way to kill bacteria at your desk and help stop the spread of germs is to regularly clean your personal workplace with disposable germicidal wipes.
