Cavicide (which is the usual wipes) can also be bought in spray bottle
or gallon jugs. There is only a 3 min time for all these applications.

When reading the literature on surface cleaning, when using wipes, the
dry time (or time to stay wet on the surface), is 3 minutes. For the
disinfectant spray, it is recommended that the area remain wet for 10
minutes without being allowed to dry. I agree this does increase
turnover time in many instances.
For this reason we utilize the disinfectant wipes to clean all
horizontal surfaces. However, if very visibly dirty or large amount of
fluid, we use the spray bottles and wait the necessary amount of time.

I’ve read articles that say the disinfectant spray should be allowed to
lay wet on the horizontal surfaces and then wiped off. Does anyone
actually do this? It certainly would add to the turnover time; we
currently spray then immediately wipe off.
