Spring is here… the windows are opening, the kids are running in and out and they are bringing in who knows what from outside. With winter behind us, sometimes we forget that we still need to be vigilant against bacteria and allergens.
Lysol is on our side when it comes to protecting our family. We were able to review the following items:
LYSOL® Disinfectant Spray is an EPA registered disinfectant that kills more than 99.9% of illness-causing bacteria and viruses including H1N1, Rhinovirus, Staph and MRSA. Unlike other sanitizing products which only kill bacteria on hard surfaces, LYSOL® Disinfectant Spray is also approved to kill 99.9% of illness-causing bacteria on soft surfaces. It even works to control the growth of mold and mildew, some of the most common types of allergens, on surfaces you seldom think of like plastic shower curtains.* It is the #1 brand recommended by pediatricians.
LYSOL® Disinfectant Spray can be used throughout your home on surfaces such as doorknobs, telephones, counter tops, sinks, garbage cans, diaper pails, toilet areas, faucets, couches/sofas, mattresses, upholstery and backpacks.
Use LYSOL® Disinfectant Spray to eliminate the following bacteria, fungi and viruses on hard, non-porous surfaces:
• Viruses including influenza, rhinovirus (the leading cause of the common cold), rotavirus (the leading cause of infectious diarrhea in children) and Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) (the leading cause of lower respiratory infection in children) and H1N1
• Bacteria including Staph, MRSA, Strep, E.coli, Salmonella and Campylobacter
• Fungi including Athlete’s Foot Fungus, Mold and Mildew
I love Lysol Spray because I can use it just about anywhere. Not only am I disinfecting, but I am also making the area smell just a little nicer. I have been using Lysol spray for years now… they are great for toys (babies are always putting them in their mouths!), diaper pails, trash cans, counter tops, and more. It only takes a second and you’re done!
LYSOL® Disinfecting Wipes help stop the spread of germs and are perfect for touch-up cleaning and even removing allergens.* Like germs, allergens such as pollen particles, pet dander and dust mite debris exist on hard surfaces, so use LYSOL® Disinfecting Wipes around your home to help keep your family thriving year round – they are even suitable to use on finished wood.
LYSOL® Disinfecting Wipes also kill 99.9% of viruses and bacteria and help prevent the spread of germs in your home including Staph, Salmonella, E.Coli and Influenza A.
Disinfect commonly touched surfaces where viruses and bacteria can collect such as doorknobs, telephones, faucets, fixtures and appliance handles. Use LYSOL® Disinfecting Wipes because they do more by both killing germs and removing allergens. In fact, they remove over 95% of allergens, including pollen particles, pet dander and dust mite debris.
I use Lysol wipes on the kitchen counter. You can use the wipes just about anywhere you use the spray (it doesn’t work as well on fabric though). I like to use them when I want a hands on, wipe it off application.
LYSOL® No-TouchTM Hand Soap System
Our hands can spread a lot of bacteria. That’s why LYSOL® created the No-TouchTM Hand Soap System to help stop the spread of bacteria, so you’ll never have to touch a germy soap pump again. Voted 2011 Product of the Year, it automatically senses your hands and dispenses the perfect amount of soap and kills 99.9% of bacteria. Furthermore, the soap refills are enriched with moisturizing ingredients.
Now, the LYSOL® No-TouchTM Hand Soap System has a new stainless steel look that goes with any décor. Healthy hands are now automatic all over your home.
Use LYSOL® No-TouchTM Hand Soap System to kill 99.9% of the following bacteria:
• E.coli • Strep • MRSA
• VRE • Pseudomonas • Staphylococcus
Starter Kits are available in 3 scents:
• (NEW) Aloe Vera & Vitamin E with Moisturizers • (NEW) Antibacterial Total Care • Soothing Cucumber Splash
The hand soap system was new to our house. I have always wondered how effective this really was. I have learned that, especially with Emma and Ethan, it helps to ensure your children are using the appropriate amount of hand soap to clean up properly. Oftentimes they will use too little or just way too much. One little point I want to mention, though. My husband found out the hard way that you need to grab it from behind to move it. Twice now he’s gotten a soap mess on the top of his hand from holding the dispenser from the front while moving it.
Lysol has made a series of videos to help us allergy-proof our homes here.
This is the first in the series.
