Note: Text based on automatic Optical Character Recognition processes. Please use the PDF version for legal matters

WHAT IS CLAIMED IS:

1 . A composition for increasing the adherence of RNA viruses, the composition comprising:

a liquid carrier;

an adherent agent selected from the group consisting of: water soluble or dispersible polyester, Methylcellulose, Polyvinylpyrrolidone, and combinations thereof; and

a humectant;

wherein the composition is non-antimicrobial.

2. The composition of claim 1 , wherein the humectant is selected from the group consisting of: glycerin, glycerin derivatives, hyaluronic acid derivatives, betaine derivatives amino acids, amino acid derivatives, glycosaminoglycans, glycols, polyols, sugars, sugar alcohols, hydrogenated starch hydrolysates, hydroxy acids, hydroxy acid derivatives, salts of PCA, and any combination thereof.

3. The composition of claim 1 , wherein the humectant is selected from the group consisting of: honey, sorbitol, hyaluronic acid, sodium hyaluronate, betaine, lactic acid, citric acid, sodium citrate, glycolic acid, sodium glycolate .sodium lactate, urea, propylene glycol, butylene glycol, pentylene glycol, ethoxydiglycol, methyl gluceth-10, methyl gluceth-20, PEG-2, PEG-3, PEG-4, PEG-5, PEG- 6, PEG-7, PEG-8, PEG-9, PEG-10, xylitol, maltitol, and any combination thereof.

4. The composition of claim 1 , wherein the humectant is selected from the group consisting of: glycerin, a glycerin derivative, and combinations thereof.

5. The composition of claims 1 or 2, further comprising an ingredient selected from the group

consisting of an emollient, a surfactant, and any combination thereof.

6. The composition of claims 1 or 2, wherein the adherent agent increases the attachment of RNA viruses to a polystyrene surface by at least -0.25 Log of viruses according to the High Throughput Test to Quantify the Attachment of Phage to a Surface as described herein.

7. The composition of claims 1 or 2, wherein the adherent agent increases the attachment of RNA viruses to a polystyrene surface by at least -0.35 Log of bacteria according to the High Throughput Test to Quantify the Attachment of Phage to a Surface as described herein.

8. The composition of claims 1 or 2, wherein the water soluble or dispersible polyester is Polyester-5.

9. The composition of claims 1 or 2, wherein the adherent agent is present in the amount of about 0.01 % to about 20.0% by weight of the composition, and wherein the humectant is present in the amount of about 0.01 % to about 20.0% by weight of the composition.

10. A method for removing RNA viruses from a surface, the method comprising:

providing a composition for increasing the adherence of RNA viruses, the composition comprising: an adherent agent selected from the group consisting of: water soluble or dispersible polyester, Methylcellulose, Polyvinylpyrrolidone, and combinations thereof; the composition being non-antimicrobial;

applying the composition to the surface; and

removing at least some of the composition from the surface to remove RNA viruses from the surface.

11 . The method of claim 10, wherein the composition further comprises a liquid carrier and a

humectant.

12. The method of claim 1 1 , wherein the humectant is selected from the group consisting of: glycerin, glycerin derivatives, hyaluronic acid derivatives, betaine derivatives amino acids, amino acid derivatives, glycosaminoglycans, glycols, polyols, sugars, sugar alcohols, hydrogenated starch hydrolysates, hydroxy acids, hydroxy acid derivatives, salts of PCA, and any combination thereof.

13. The method of any one of claims 10-12, wherein the water soluble or dispersible polyester is Polyester-5.

14. The method of any one of claims 10-12, further comprising:

allowing at least some of the composition to remain on the surface.

15. The method of any one of claims 10-12, wherein the composition is applied to the surface in a solution form.

16. The method of any one of claims 10-12, wherein the composition is incorporated in a wipe.

17. A wipe comprising:

a nonwoven substrate; and

a composition for increasing the adherence of RNA viruses comprising:

a liquid carrier; and

an adherent agent selected from the group consisting of: water soluble or dispersible polyester, Methylcellulose, Polyvinylpyrrolidone, and combinations thereof; the composition being non-antimicrobial.

18. The wipe of claim 17, wherein the composition further comprises a humectant.

19. The wipe of claim 18, wherein the humectant is selected from the group consisting of: glycerin, glycerin derivatives, hyaluronic acid derivatives, betaine derivatives amino acids, amino acid derivatives, glycosaminoglycans, glycols, polyols, sugars, sugar alcohols, hydrogenated starch hydrolysates, hydroxy acids, hydroxy acid derivatives, salts of PCA, and any combination thereof.

20. The wipe of claim 18, wherein the humectant is selected from the group consisting of: glycerin, a glycerin derivative, and combinations thereof.
