I never wipe bits at all after use. I don't know anyone that does. The only time I clean a bit is if I buy a used bit. Then I wash it good because I don't know if the last horse was sick or something. Must be an English riding thing? I have never heard of a western rider wiping bits.

Just our tack room is really dusty and he works the bit good so it usually is covered in gunk so I just wipe it down before and after.

But I never expected them to be really expensive.

I was taught that if you don't remove the gunked on hay/grass goop that builds up on the bit, it hardens on there and can eventually chafe the side of the mouth and cause sores.

I just pick the gunk off once it's dry. My horse collects a lot of slobber/gunk so just adds more every time.

Would lysol wipes be okay to use?

Personally I wouldn't since it's going in their mouths. I used to use a little towel and had no problems with it.

I dunk mine in a water bucket after riding hehe. This is hilarious. I don't even spend $200 on bridles.
