When treating wounds, it is important to keep the area and anything that touches it as clean and sterile as possible. This can reduce the risk of infection and can also help dressings stay in place. Alcohol towelettes should be included in every first aid kit in a home, school, or workplace. These non-woven pads with 70% isopropyl alcohol can be used to clean the area around a wound for better dressing adhesion. They are also ideal for sterilizing instruments and other surfaces.
