Alcohol Prep Pads are used for both disinfection and cleansing of injection sites, surgical sites, and wounds, and can also be used in order to provide pain relief from minor wounds. They are found widely available in hospitals, clinics, pharmacies, and first-aid kits. Alcohol Prep Pads prevent the microorganisms that cause disease from entering the body.
Alcohol Prep Pads are useful when one does not have access to clean water or soap. Alcohol Prep Pads are a more convenient alternative to bringing a bottle of alcohol and cotton swabs. They come in small individual packets and are convenient to keep in a first-aid kit, car, or any other place. They may be used to clean a cut, scrape, or minor wound, and to disinfect medical equipment.
