Review of Lysol Disinfectant Spray, Crisp Linen Scent

Disclosure: I was not paid or compensated in any way to write this review. I am not affiliated with the company that manufactures and distributes these products. I paid for the products with my own funds. This review reflects my own experience with and honest opinion of the products as a consumer.

Lysol Disinfectant
Spray, Crisp Linen
I am a person who is really concerned about germs. Microorganisms are all around us. They can be isolated from the door knobs that we handle and even the air that we breathe. So in order to protect myself from those microorganisms that illness, I use Lysol disinfectant spray.

Lysol products are manufactured for and distributed by Reckitt Benckiser, Inc. According to the company, Lysol disinfectant spray kills 99.9% of viruses and bacteria. It also kills 99.9% mold & mildew. More specifically, Lysol disinfectant spray kills Influenza A virus, Influenza B virus, Rhino virus Type 39, Salmonella enterica, E. coli, Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), etc. I’ve had boils caused by Staph and it is not pretty. Anyways, this is not an exhaustive list of the microbes that Lysol will kill.

The product is so powerful and effective that it is used in hospitals. It passes the AOAV Germicidal Spray Product Test standard. The active ingredient in Lysol disinfectant spray is 0.1% Alkyl dimethyl benzyl ammonium saccharinate and 58% Ethanol.

I usually purchase Lysol in a 19oz. aerosol spray can, which runs about $4 at retail stores. It is available in many scents. The scent that I purchase most often is crisp linen. Only, the product doesn’t smell anything like Crisp Linen. The 19 oz. can lasts me about two months, since I don’t go crazy spraying everything.

In my home, I use Lysol disinfectant spray to deodorize the air after using the toilet. From time to time, I spray Lysol on door knobs and wipe them real good. Touching door knobs is one of the most common ways that germs are transmitted between people. People carry germs with their hands and spread them by touching things.

I live in Florida, which has a tropical climate conducive to mold growth. When it is very hot and humid, sometimes the atmosphere in my home smells moldy. Therefore, I use Lysol disinfectant spray in the rooms to help eliminate that moldy smell. Then, I open up the windows to air the home out. It works reasonably to neutralize bad odors, although the product itself doesn’t exactly smell wonderful. Lysol disinfectant has a really strong medicine-like and chemical smell.

Outside of my home, I use it to sanitize and disinfect at Laundromats and public restrooms. Prior to loading my clothing into washing machines, I spray the inside of the machine with Lysol and let it sit for several minutes. In this way I feel assured that most bacteria or viruses present are killed. As far as my Lysol use in public restrooms goes, it is a quirky ritual. I spray the toilet seats and top portion of the toilet bowl very well. Then, I line the toilet seat with toilet paper before I sit on the seat. It’s kind of weird but that’s the only way that I feel somewhat comfortable using public toilets.

I like the way that the spray nozzle and top of the can are designed. You don’t have to worry about removing and replacing a cap on the can. The nozzle is surrounded by a plastic covering. There is a slot or notch on the top of the can where you place your finger on the nozzle to spray. The plastic covering protects the nozzle from damage caused by over-bending the nozzle or dropping the can.   There is not much more annoying to me than broken spray nozzles.  Broken spray nozzles equal half-empty cans of product that you can't use, which equals waste.  So, this feature is a major plus.

It is very important to follow the instructions in order to get the most out of this product.  There are different instructions on how to deodorize, sanitize, disinfect, etc.  Also, I don't know how effective Lysol disinfectant spray is for killing germs in extaneous organic matter, such as feces, urine,  vomitus, or blood.  You may do well to use bleach diluted with water when trying to disinfect extraneous organic matter.

Lysol disinfectant spray is a great product. However, if there were one thing that I could change about it, it would be the scent. I am confident that it kills germs, but it has a strong chemical odor. When I don’t feel like spraying and inhaling the smell, Lysol disinfectant wipes are another option.
