PAWS Antimicrobial Wipe (1)


Antimicrobial Wipes

We recommend 5-10 of these, but at least a few. Antimicrobial products are antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral. Antibacterial products should always be used sparingly, but after an earthquake there will be no running water. These wipes are intended for use in scenarios where there is risk of infection, such as cleaning hands after touching blood or other potentially infectious matter or prior to eating with your hands. Note that diarrheal diseases are a major concern after disasters.


Antimicrobial (antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral) wipes, for cleaning without water. We don’t recommend using these in general, as widespread use leads to super bugs with high resistance to antibiotics. However, if you don’t have any water, the more important issue is fecal-oral contamination. After a major earthquake we will need to take extra precautions not to get sick, and make a difficult experience even worse.

If you are building your own bag, you don’t need to overload on these. Just include what you need to get home, and focus on storing plenty of water for cleaning up after that.
