Lysol - Review & GIVEAWAY!

I've used Lysol in my home for several years now, so when I was contacted by a representative of Lysol to review their new products I jumped right on board! Go ahead and read on to see what I think, and then enter to win some for yourself!!!

Lysol sent me a sample of Lysol Disinfecting Wipes and can of Lysol Disinfectant Spray to check out and report back on. This is what they have to say about the Lysol Disinfectant Spray:

"LYSOL® Disinfectant Spray is an EPA registered disinfectant that kills
more than 99.9% of illness causing bacteria and viruses including
H1N1, the common cold and staph 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, among the most common type of allergens, on
surfaces you seldom think of like plastic shower curtains."

Here's what they have to say about the Lysol disinfectant wipes:

"For use in your kitchen, bathroom and all over the house to
protect your family, LYSOL® Disinfecting Wipes 4in1 with Micro-
Lock™ are the convenient way to clean and disinfect your
household surfaces. Each pre-moistened disposable wipe kills
99.9% of germs — even the bacteria that cause odors — where
you use it. No bottles, no sponges, no mess."

My thoughts?

THE GOOD:

Well, as stated, I'm already a Lysol user, so of *course* I like the products.

I've used the wipes for removing the pollen from our outdoor patio set, disinfecting the counter tops after breaking down raw chicken and to clean the floor after a pet accident. I've found this new generation of wipes is stronger and also patterned to do a better job at picking up dirt and dust. The spray has come in handy for cutting down the smell in our kitchen trash can where I (lazily) throw poopy diapers when I don't feel like going to the outdoor garbage pail. I was sent the vanilla scent to try, which I've never used before. The smell was pleasant and not overpowering.

THE BAD:

My only negative thoughts are that we've tried to eliminate as many disposable cleaning products from our routine as we can. We've stopped using paper towels and paper napkins, so this felt a little bit like a step backward. That being said, I don't mind using these on rare occasion when I feel like they do a better job and I do occasionally buy these on my own.
