Alcohol wipes are the easiest and most effective form of disinfectant in the game. They are used to remove infections from wounds, and are an integral part of the health system. The wipes are also drainable, providing five uses before the pack runs out. Like other disinfectants, using alcohol wipes will cause an increase in pain to the player, so combining them with painkillers is advised.
It is recommended to keep a form of disinfectant nearby at all times, as dangers lurk around every corner in Project Zomboid, and all wounds have the potential to become infected - making the alcohol wipes or other disinfectants some of the most commonly used medical equipment.
They can be found in pharmacies such as Cortman Medical in Muldraugh, Pharmahug in West Point or at the Mall in Valley Station. They can also be less commonly found in vehicles, bathroom counters and medicine cabinets in private houses.
