Dettol Multipurpose Antibacterial Surface Cleaning Wipes Crisp Apple, 480 Wipes (4x 120) $30 + Post ($0 Prime) @ Amazon AU

214

Posting this as I just picked these up, definitely won't last long so a really good deal if you manage to grab them before they sell out. Has been cheaper but still a really good deal as these are generally $10 per pack… if you can find them at the moment!

It's strictly limited to one per customer and account to stop people from ordering multiple. But please be sensible and not buy with multiple accounts to allow as many to grab it as possible.

Sorry for spamming OzBargain with personal hygiene goods lately, hoping to share as much of these as possible so we can all stay safe/clean.

    Sounds very expensive.

      Which Aldi?

      None at mine, I agree about the price though, those who really want them can pay the premium.

        Indeed, alcohol of at least 60% (as a wipe, gel or liquid) is the only portable option (this is documented everywhere) . Handwashing with soap and water still seems to be king.

        I think these wipes give people a false sense of security. Frankly a wet one would probably be as beneficial against covid.

        As I say, this info is documented everywhere.

      ^ this .. I'm concerned how many people might be putting themselves at risk with false expectations from anti-bacterial products

      I'm pretty confused with this…i was googling the ingredients and came across this pdf which says benzalkonium chloride is effective???

        Just did a quick search found 2 studies, here and here, showing benzalkonium chloride was effective against sars-cov and there are multiple studies showing it is effective against animal coronaviruses. There is one study here from 1998 which shows it was ineffective against human coronavirus which is where all these articles about it being ineffective are coming from.

        From my judgement it is probably effective against covid-19.

          Looks like phew manged to beat me by 1 min. Strange, lots of contradicting studies…

          Given its effectiveness against SARS, I would say its likely effective as well given the similarities between those two coronaviruses.

        Not sure where they are getting their data from, I checked the source list it had nothing about testing the effectiveness of benzalkonium chloride.

        This investigation found it not effective against human coronavirus. It was only effective against HIV, Herpes, and human coxsackie virus.
        https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S019567019...

        From the Abstract:
        Results indicate that all products were effective in inactivating the enveloped viruses herpes simplex virus type 1 and human immunodeficiency virus type 1, whilst being ineffective in inactivating human coronavirus, also enveloped, and the non-enveloped viruses. The exception to this was the benzalkonium chloride-based product (Dettol Hospital Concentrate) which was active against the non-enveloped human coxsackie virus.

        From the conclusion within the research paper:
        The antiseptics were not effective in the inactivation of the more resistant non-enveloped poliovirus Sabin type 1, human adenovirus and coxsackie virus and the enveloped human coronavirus even at the 10 min timepoint. The exception was Dettol Hospital Concentrate (active agent benzalkonium chloride) which was effective
        in the inactivation of the non-enveloped human coxsackie virus with a reduction of >5 log, after the 1 min timepoint.

          It was only in the reference list at the bottom but their source was here which then references a 1988 study tested against canine coronavirus

        These wipes are "Benzalkonium Chloride 0.47% w/w (0.3 w/w at use by date)." That article states recommends concentration ">0.05%", so seems sufficient.

        However,
        https://www.journalofhospitalinfection.com/article/S0195-6701(20)30046-3/fulltext - this article states

        "Other biocidal agents such as 0.05–0.2% benzalkonium chloride or 0.02% chlorhexidine digluconate are less effective" (compared to ethanol).

        Not ineffective, but less effective.

        The reason for the confusion is alluded to in the paper;

        Data obtained with benzalkonium chloride at reasonable contact times were conflicting. Within 10 min a concentration of 0.2% revealed no efficacy against coronavirus whereas a concentration of 0.05% was quite effective

        Noting that the paper is referencing prior papers on SARS/MERS and extrapolating to SARS-CoV-2, which seems reasonable.

        My conclusion: probably needs further study, probably best not to rely on it in the interim.

    Very very expensive, no bargain!

    •  

      Expensive it is, but needs to be taken in the context of availability and your immediate need. For example…I managed to get 450ml hand sanitiser from my News Agency (of all places) for $28…….i knew it was a rort, but still a bargain given its lack of general availability and my immediate need. So in that context for me it was a bargain.

    Overpriced and runs out before you finish reading the title. Sick of these Amazon “deals” that are more like clickbaits

  •  

    No shade on this deal per se but these are expensive, wasteful and no more effective on viruses than surface spray and a damp cloth.

  •  

    that quick ??!?!?!?!?!?!?

  •  

    Yeah the Amazon deals go so fast.

    I managed to get a pack of 36 toilet rolls yesterday. By time I came here to make a post for others it was sold out :(
