PDI’s Sani-Cloth® AF Germicidal Disposable Wipe Receives 2011 WOW Innovation Award

CARY, N.C. — June 28, 2011 — Sani-Cloth® AF Germicidal Disposable Wipe, a new generation
disinfectant product by Professional Disposables International, Inc., received the prestigious WOW
Innovation Award presented as part of the fifth annual World of Wipes (WOW) Conference, June 14-16
at the Grand Hyatt Buckhead in Atlanta, Georgia.

The WOW Conference, organized by INDA, the leading global Association of the Nonwoven Fabrics
Industry, is devoted solely to wipes, with a concentration on substrates, active ingredients,
converting, packaging, market metrics, industry challenges and market opportunities. The WOW
Innovation Award recognizes and rewards the industry members who bring new and value-added
processes and products to the wipes market. Following presentations by the six finalists, attendees
at the WOW Conference voted the Sani-Cloth® AF Germicidal Disposable Wipe as the recipient of the
2011 Award.

PDI has developed a new generation of disinfectant products with broad spectrum antimicrobial
activity and short contact times to disinfect non-porous healthcare surfaces. PDI’s Sani-Cloth® AF
Germicidal Wipe is the first and only alcohol-free germicidal wipe on the market that kills at
least 25 bugs (including multi-drug resistant organisms) in only 3 minutes for fast patient room
turnover. This not only covers the needs of the surfaces, but is formulated to be free of alcohol,
fragrance, bleach, acid, phenol, acetone and ammonia so that it is sensitive to the patients,
healthcare workers, and equipment used during the disinfection process.

“We are proud to be recognized for our innovation and industry leadership, said Daniel Marsh,
executive vice president, PDI Healthcare. We make infection prevention possible with the
combination of our innovative products, clinical support, and education in health care and public

“INDA congratulates PDI on winning this year’s WOW Innovation award,” said Phil Pitt,
director of marketing, INDA. “WOW 2011 was a great success with record attendance.  The
exciting new products presented by PDI and the other five finalists prove that innovation in our
industry is strong and vibrant.”

ingredients and preservatives that are in every other baby wipe, and are as pure, mild and safe as
the cotton wool and water recommended by Midwives and health care professionals everywhere — but
they are far more convenient. WaterWipes are suitable for newborns because they are so pure, and
they help to avoid diaper rash. They are also 100% biodegradable.

make-up while being gentle enough for daily use. By using a spinning or vibrating motion the softly
textured pads can clean deeper into pores to remove dirt, oil and make-up and leave a soft feel to
the skin.

* Paper Shower — Paper Shower. A unique combination of moist and dry towelettes,
each individually sealed in portable, convenient packs, Paper Shower is an affordable and effective
personal hygiene solution ideal for travelers, commuters, outdoor adventurists, picnic-goers and
parents who often need to wipe up messy hands and faces. The small, foldable packs drop easily into
a handbag, backpack, carry-on baggage or fit perfectly into a pocket.
