Lysol Disinfectant Spray is a proprietary formula (all rights reserved) that is also a household brand name known for some of the best antibacterial spray products.. It stands out among the other disinfectant sprays because it guarantees a 99.99& germ-free surface after uses. You can use it on hard surfaces, like door knobs, or soft surfaces, like a couch. Unfortunately, the cap has a tendency to break during delivery, as reflected in the reviews Lysol has on their product page.

When it comes to germ control, Lysol Disinfectant Spray is known as one of the go-to options. This spray kills up to 99.99% of odor-causing bacteria, as well as 99.99% of cold and flu viruses, making it an excellent choice if you are a germaphobe. It can be used on both hard surfaces (like light switches or toilet seats) and soft surfaces (like a booster seat or pillows). Many people use it purely for its cleaning abilities, but it can also be used to fight odors as well.


This can is easily recognizable, with “Lysol” being prominent right in the middle of the label. Above this the can mentions that Lysol kills over 100 different types of germs, and below it reinforces its value as a disinfectant spray. The 19 oz. can comes with a white spray top, which is easier to use than the pull-and-spray design of CleanSmart Disinfectant Spray, and fits perfectly in your hand. Unfortunately, the plastic spray top is also what will break in shipping (if anything breaks,) but thankfully this is not a common problem.


Although there are some tasks that Lysol just isn’t suitable for, such as cleaning adult toys (use Shibari Advanced Antibacterial Toy Cleaner instead), the overall value of this product is enormous. Whereas many products just mention they kill bacteria, Lysol actually gives you a percentage (99%) of the bacteria and viruses that it kills, providing peace of mind. This spray is triple-use, both as a disinfectant and a sanitizer, as well as a deodorizer, so you can use it for almost any cleaning task that comes to mind. As a bonus, it also prevents mold growth!

Lysol Disinfectant Spray Wrap Up

Lysol Disinfectant Spray is a great product that you can use on a variety of cleaning tasks around the house (provided it doesn’t break during shipping.) Assuming you receive the product undamaged, you can easily complete your daily routine of cleaning counters, couches, and spraying dirty shoes so the whole house doesn’t smell with this single-stop solution spray.
