There’s no denying that digital devices have made our jobs easier, in ways we now take for granted. For sharing, editing, organizing and searching information, digital apps rule the day. This blog itself is a great example of the wealth of information now available at out fingertips.
But if productivity is your priority, there are still times when a pen and paper can’t be beat.
For starters, let’s talk reliability. A pen and paper don’t crash, freeze or lose information. And they still work when you lose power.
Surface cleaning wipes have become one of the most important items to have on hand in the workplace due to the increased focus on cleanliness in the wake of COVID-19. Using these products to wipe away germs is a key strategy to keep an environment as sterile as possible.
However, the wipes industry continues to be challenged with rising demand and not enough supply. A variety of factors are contributing to the shortage. According to Brian Sansoni, senior vice president of the American Cleaning Institute, restrictions placed on factories in China that manufacture cleaning wipes have made it harder to obtain certain ammonium compounds, the chemicals that allow certain wipes to disinfect. Cleaning wipe materials are also being diverted to make other kinds of products, such as PPE, contributing to the scarcity.
Adding to the severity of the situation are COVID-19 outbreaks in places that have started to open. States with spikes are grabbing the limited supply that is available to consumers, preventing the overall demand in the marketplace from being met. The shortage is likely to get worse in the coming months. Linda Rendle, Clorox’s CEO posits that, between the upcoming cold and flu season and the continued presence of COVID-19, supply for cleaning wipes will continue to be low.
Due to this ongoing shortage, the market has been flooded with new products to meet the demand, creating confusion as to what wipes can perform what type of cleaning, and which are effective against COVID-19. With these new options available, it’s important to pick the right wipe for the job.
