Why are Vapor Fresh® Gym Wipes a lot better than Monk Wipes?
Monk Wipes are typical quaternary ammonium wipes. Like all other gym wipe brands, they make the same wipes and just slap a different label on them. On the other hand, Vapor Fresh® Gym Wipes are the first and only gym wipes to use citric acid as the disinfectant, making Vapor Fresh® cheaper, stronger, safer and greener. Monk Wipes claims to "kill bacteria in 15 seconds*", but the asterick leads you to fine print saying that while they can kill a few strains of bacteria in 15 seconds, it takes 10 minutes to 99.9% disinfect a surface. Monk Wipes are also very expensive and you only get 800 wipes per roll. This is all in comparison to Vapor Fresh® Gym Wipes which are EPA-registered to disinfect surfaces 99.9% in just 5 minutes, twice as fast as Monk Wipes. And with 1,200 wipes on each roll, Vapor Fresh® Gym Wipes provide more bang for your buck.
Why are Vapor Fresh® Gym Wipes a lot better than Gym Wipes 2XL?
Gym Wipes 2XL are also basic quaternary ammonium wipes. Like other gym wipe manufacturers, they make the same gym wipes and just slap a different label on them. Vapor Fresh® Gym Wipes are the first and only gym wipes to use citric acid as the disinfectant, making Vapor Fresh® cheaper, stronger, safer and greener. 2XL Corp sells a few different versions of wipes, but only one disinfecting version. When comparing our wipes to 2XL, make sure to compare only the disinfecting version, as the weaker sanitizing wipes and the nonactive wipes will not provide enough cleaning power to disinfect gym equipment. Gym Wipes 2XL are very expensive. If you compare how much each wipe cost, you'll see that your money will go much further with Vapor Fresh® Gym Wipes. Gym Wipes 2XL also take 10 minutes to 99.9% disinfect a surface, while Vapor Fresh® Gym Wipes work twice as fast, keeping your gym cleaner and safer.
Why are Vapor Fresh® Gym Wipes a lot better than Zogics Wipes?
Zogics Wipes are also typical quaternary ammonium wipes. Like all other gym wipe manufacturers, they make the same gym wipes and just slap on a different label. In comparison, Vapor Fresh® Gym Wipes are the first and only gym wipes to use citric acid as the disinfectant, making Vapor Fresh® cheaper, stronger, safer and greener. Zogic sells a number of different types of wipes, but only one is a registered disinfectant. Anything less than a disinfectant will not be strong enough to disinfect gym surfaces and will fall short of keeping a gym clean. Even when you compare the Zogics Disinfecting Gym Wipe to Vapor Fresh® Disinfecting Gym Wipes, you'll see that Zogics is a lot more expensive and not as effective. There are 50% more wipes on a roll of Vapor Fresh® Gym Wipes compared to a roll of Zogics Gym Wipes, allowing you to get much more bang for your buck.
