Towelettes, Personal, Antiseptic definition: Personal towelettes designed to apply an agent (e.g., antiseptic) that inhibits the growth and development of microorganisms without necessarily killing them. These towelettes are usually presoaked with the antiseptic (e.g., isopropyl alcohol, benzalkonium chloride); some include agents that effectively kill pathogenic microorganisms (germicides), such as iodine or povidone-iodine (betadine). Personal antiseptic towelettes are mostly used to clean wounds, cuts, and abrasions; they are also used to avoid cross-contamination (e.g., by hand definition) when water is not available or appropriate.
