The purpose of the hand wipes is to remove any dirt, debris, lotion, food, saliva, etc., from hands and to provide a clean surface for the hand sanitizer to be effective. The operation must choose an appropriate type of hand wipe. The wipes (as per the glossary definition) should be pre-moistened by the manufacturer. The wipe must be intended for use on hands and/or skin which can usually be determined by reading the label. Therefore, a sanitizing wipe designed for cleaning food contact surfaces, countertops and similar surfaces (such as Lysol or Clorox disinfecting wipes) are not acceptable.
