Abstract

We examined the efficacy of 2 commercially available wipes to effectively remove, kill, and prevent the transfer of both methicillin‐resistant and methicillin‐susceptible Staphylococcus aureus from contaminated surfaces. Although wipes play a role in decreasing the number of pathogenic bacteria from contaminated surfaces, they can potentially transfer bacteria to other surfaces if they are reused.
