If you are the primary caregiver for a patient who is bed-ridden, you know how important it is to keep all areas well cleaned for their hygiene and safety. No doubt you spend a lot of time perusing medical supplies designed to help make your job easier while at the same time keeping your patient clean and healthy.

During cleaning or bath time you know you will be going through many washcloths. While the soiled cloths pile up you are making loads of laundry for yourself, which will take up lots of valuable time. You love the idea of a disposable washcloth; however, you wish there were a “greener” more environmentally safe alternative.

You will be very glad to know that these days many companies are on the “green” bandwagon and have heeded your call. Environmentally safe disposable washcloths are available and they are so easy to use. They are soft to the touch to ensure your patient remains comfortable. Some washcloths are complete washing systems with a safe, non toxic, gentle cleanser built right into them; all you need to do is run them under warm water.

These timesaving, efficient washcloths really do have the patient and the caregiver in mind. So, next time you are shopping for medical supplies, add environmentally safe, disposable washcloths into your cart!
