Paper towel kills germs and bacteria

The ubiquitous paper towel has been transformed in the shape of Cascades Antibacterial Paper Towel. Enhancing hygiene by minimizing hand contamination, these towels kill 99.99 percent of harmful bacteria almost instantly. Since 80 percent of all infections are transmitted by hand, the lack of proper hand hygiene, in particular inadequate hand washing and drying practices, continues to be a consistent, if not deadly, problem. These distinctly green-colored paper towels release the active ingredient Benzalkonium Chloride when in contact with wet hands. This active ingredient has been around since 1935 and is safely used in common products, including gel sanitizers, baby wipes and antiseptic skin solutions.
