Albaad created Cleanitize, using its proprietary spunlace fabric and innovative liquid formula manufactured in-house. Consumers now have access to a wipe that kills the virus that causes COVID-19. This product will help meet the ongoing demand of families, communities, schools, businesses, and healthcare facilities.

"We pride ourselves on our exceptional product quality that incorporates innovative materials and formulations with top-of-the-line quality," said Dan Mesika, Albaad CEO. "The EPA's approval recognizes that Cleanitize wipes are effective against the virus that causes COVID-19."

Cleanitize was developed with a focus on innovation to deliver the following consumer benefits:

  • Kills 99.9% of the virus that causes COVID-19* (SARS-CoV-2), when used as directed on hard, non-porous surfaces – as tested by a third-party laboratory and approved for EPA’s List N.

  • Disinfects and Cleans – for the ultimate cleaning experience, is bleach free with no chemical smell. Leaves a fresh, clean scent.

  • Easy to Use – The thick, quality fabric tackles even the toughest jobs with ease and provides the user a trusting confidence of a job well done.

"Our innovative wipes and other products continue our mission of supporting health and happiness for consumers and health care workers."

EPA Approved

List N products are registered by the EPA and meet the Agency’s criteria for use against the virus* that causes COVID-19 (*SARS-CoV-2) on hard, non-porous surfaces. Before products can legally make claims that they can kill a particular pathogen such as SARS-CoV-2, the claim must be authorized by the EPA based on a rigorous testing process and stringent review of data. Cleanitze can be found HERE on the List N, EPA approved products, (Cleanitize EPA Reg No. 75459-1).
