How effective are alcohol wipes at getting rid of viruses/bacteria on surfaces? I use them to wipe my hands after pumping gas, cleaning my phone, etc

In brief: Excellent

The problem is that alcohol can dry your skin.
The newer alcohol containing solutions for hand disinfection don't cause as much dry skin but control the germ levels as well as alcohol pads. try using them.
