The Clorox Healthcare 4% CHG Skin Cleansing Kit is an easy-to-use kit for reducing bacteria on the skin prior to surgery. Two single-use packs, attached via a perforated seal, contain the essentials for the two pre-procedural CHG showers recommended by the Association of periOperative Registered Nurses. Each pack includes a four-ounce bottle of 4 percent CHG solution, three disposable washcloths, and bilingual, waterproof instructions that the patient can bring into the shower. Online tools such as a Patient Reminder System and Video Directions for Use (bilingual) help ensure the product is used and used correctly.
