Decontamination wipes are specifically designed to remove soot and contamination from vulnerable areas of the skin exposed to fire by-products. The use of decontamination wipes are to be used on all affected areas of the skin immediately after exposure, including face, jaw angle, neck, throat and groin. They can be used to remove potentially carcinogenic debris from protective equipment.
