Supertowel is designed to provide clean hands or surfaces without using soap and using only a small amount of water. The cloth collects 99.9% of all bacteria and it is being killed inside of the cloth’s fabric within 30 seconds, so that they are not carried on to new surfaces.

Health, Hygiene and importance of handwashing
Handwashing is one of the most important and efficient public health interventions in the world. Every year, 1.8 million children do not live to celebrate their fifth birthday because of diarrheal diseases and pneumonia. Handwashing is among the most effective and inexpensive ways to prevent these diseases. This simple behavior can save lives, cutting diarrhea by almost one-half and acute respiratory infections by nearly one-quarter. Handwashing impacts not only health but also education, economics and equity. It plays an important role in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals - contributing to improved sanitation, zero hunger, good health, quality education, equity and much more.
Supertowel is designed with a permanently bonded antimicrobial technology. When wetted and rubbed against the hands, the pathogens will be transferred to the towel and killed. The antimicrobial technology forms a positively charged layer on the fabric. This layer will attract and kill the negatively charged microbes, like bacteria and fungi. The treatment does not contain any harmful chemicals.
