Why I Store Lysol Disinfecting Wipes

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

I have been thinking a lot about bacteria lately. This is why I store these Lysol Disinfecting Wipes. First, they are not very expensive, I think I paid just under $14.00 for a six pack of these wipes. Each package contains 80 thick strong wipes. This makes them about three cents each. Here’s the deal, even if the container dries up and the cleaning solution is gone…they can be filled with a little water and they can still be used for so many clean up jobs.

The container is small and easy to store in a cupboard. There is something awesome about having some wet wipes that disinfect as well.

4. Great for the kitchen: sink, garbage cans, refrigerator exteriors, and counter tops

5. Bathrooms: bathtubs, toilet seats, shower areas, faucets

6. Office: computer keyboard and mouse, telephones, door  knobs, light switches and remote controls ( anytime someone is sick I wipe down all of these)

11. Removes the following allergens: dust mite debris, pet dander, and pollen particles from Timothy grass.

Use these as directed on the container. Unplug small electrical appliances before using these Lysol Disinfecting Wipes to clean them. These are not recommended for bare wood surfaces. Do not use on dishes, glasses or utensils.

Keep out of reach of children. I use these every week to clean my bathrooms. Of course, these are just a few other reasons why I am storing a few boxes of these. I never know what bacteria I might have to deal with. One more way to be prepared for the unexpected. I also store Clorox for a few other reasons.

    I store them as well, however, one important thing is that in order to “kill” you need to keep the surface WET for I believe 7 minutes. They are better than nothing, but not as good as we think they are. It is better to spray something, such as with a bleach cleaner if you can, and let it air dry. I use to be a school nurse and couldn’t figure out why I was so sick, then I really read the label and didn’t my research. Wash, rinse, spray and allow to airdry is now how I clean.

      Hi Gayle, I am so glad you told me this about the 7 minutes! So many people are against bleach but I will always store bleach for the very reasons you talk about. I am going to add your comment to my post if that is okay with you. Thank you! Linda
