Antiseptic Body Cleansing Washcloths
Rinse-Free, Alcohol-Free Washcloths with 2% Chlorhexidine Gluconate

Controlling the source of microorganisms on patients’ skin may be a key component in reducing transmission between patients, staff, visitors and the healthcare environment.1 To help reduce bacteria that can cause skin infection, Comfort Personal Cleansing introduces a new rinse-free, chlorhexidine gluconate (CHG) formulation in a one-step, disposable washcloth.
 
Antiseptic Body Cleansing Washcloths deliver a unique 2% Chlorhexidine solution with the gentle scrubbing action of a nonabrasive, textured washcloth. By rapidly reducing bacteria that can cause skin infection—and providing persistent antimicrobial effect against a wide variety of microorganisms—Antiseptic Body Cleansing Washcloths make it easier for facilities to reduce bacteria on the skin.
 
  • Helps reduce bacteria that can cause skin infection. Provides rapid bactericidal action. Has persistent antimicrobial effect (at least 6 hours) against a wide variety of microorganisms. Remains active in the presence of blood and other organic matter.
  • Reduces bacteria on the skin, which can help reduce risk of transmitting microorganisms from patients to staff, other patients, visitors, and surrounding environment.
  • Alcohol-free and skin-friendly. Won’t dry out skin like alcohol-based antiseptics. Soothes and moisturizes skin with aloe.
  • Large, premoistened washcloths require no rinsing. Ensures consistent chlorhexidine coverage while reducing mess and waste. Makes it easier to cleanse difficult to reach areas such as skin folds.
  • Ready to use right from the package. No diluting or additional supplies needed.
  • Non-abrasive, textured washcloth provides gentle yet effective scrubbing action to remove dirt and debris.
  • Delivers comforting warmth for patients when warmed in a microwave.
  • Latex Free.
 

The Case for Controlling the Source of Organisms on Patients' Skin

The Benefits of Reducing Bacteria on the Skin
In a recent study, researchers compared a 2% CHG impregnated washcloth system to soap and water (S&W) baths to reduce vancomycin resistant Enterococci (VRE) contamination. "Compared to S&W baths, use of a 2% CHG cleansing system resulted in decreased patient skin, environmental, and HCW [healthcare worker] hand contamination by VRE. Bathing ICU patients with CHG-impregnated cloths may be a useful adjunct to other infection control measures to reduce VRE transmission."1
 
The Benefit of "Whole-Body Disinfection"
"Brandberg (1989), who has reviewed all studies on the use of chlorhexidine for whole-body disinfection, concludes that the procedure is a valuable adjunct to existing antiseptic and aseptic measures that will contribute toward a reduction in infections caused by organisms derived from the patient’s own skin."2
