Food Service Wipes are ideal for restaurants, ghost kitchens, bakeries. Food service wipes effectively clean stainless steel countertops and other materials. You can find reusable, paper, or disinfecting food service wipes that are food-safe and suit your application.
What are food service wipes?
Food service wipes are designed to be highly functional in restaurants and kitchens while being 100% safe to use around food.
Food service wipes may include food-safe sanitizing wipes designed to be non-toxic and safe to use on food contact surfaces.
Some food service wipes come dry in a canister so you may add the disinfectant or sanitizer or your choosing to the canister, and then pull out wet wipes as needed.
If you’re unsure as to what fits your needs, then request a sample and try it out.
Are disinfecting wipes safe for food service?
You may be wondering whether you can use disinfecting wipes on food surfaces, or whether you should apply a food-safe disinfectant to a surface before wiping it down.
To answer your question: “should restaurants use sanitizing wipes?” the answer is yes.
Sanitizing wipes are a convenient way to clean a food processing or food service area. Many disinfecting wipes kill 99.9% of harmful germs and bacteria after only 15 seconds. But ensure the disinfectant is food-safe, and if it doesn’t explicitly say it is food-safe, then it probably isn’t.
According to the Partnership for Food Safety Education, disinfectants can leave behind harmful residue on food contact surfaces and thus should not be used. A simple detergent with warm water is effective at cleaning food-contact surfaces.
Ensure your sanitizing wipes are food-safe and err on the side on caution when buying scented wipes. It’s better to have a neutral sanitizing wipe than one with a potent smell.
Sanitizing wipes may cost a few pennies more but the convenience and ease of training employees may justify the additional cost.
In the end, using reusable wipes or food service wipes with a separate sanitizer or disinfectant will always be effective.
