Dr. William Schaffner, chair of the department of preventive medicine at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine, agreed that people should be careful to use disinfecting wet wipes appropriately to avoid spreading bacteria around their homes.
His motto for disinfectant wipes: “use it and lose it,” especially on highly contaminated surfaces in the bathroom and kitchen. For example, don’t use the same wipe to clean both the toilet and the sink.
But Schaffner added that in hospitals, surfaces are not the primary source of bacteria that infect patients. Other patients and health care workers are the ones who transmit the most germs. “It is hands that are the great transfer vehicle for bacteria from patient to patient,” he said.
So the rising use of disinfecting wet wipes shouldn’t overshadow the most important rule of hygiene: Wash your hands.
