A prepackaged single use disposable wiper pad or towelette that is saturated with a disinfecting liquid is prepared. The wiper pad is effective to disinfect inanimate surfaces such as telephone mouthpiece or toilet seat against a broad spectrum of infectious microorganisms including the HIV-1 or AIDS virus. The wiper pad is of a size which fits in a pocket or purse and makes it convenient to be carried safely by a person and poses no problem in disposing such as by flushing in a toilet.
