How dangerous is saturating your skin with lysol spray to kill germs, blatantly ignoring the warning?

How dangerous is saturating your skin with lysol spray to kill germs, blatantly ignoring the warning?

Why do it?: Don't know exactly how dangerous it is but if there is significant absorption through the skin it could certainly cause problems. And i woudn't recommend ignoring any warning label. The bigger question is why do it? Saturating your skin with lysol is not necessary to kill germs. Just use a basic hand sanitizer or plain soap and water and it is just as (if not more) effective. ...Read more

Does clorox wipes or lysol spray help or kill HIV or hep c, b?

Does clorox wipes or lysol spray help or kill HIV or hep c, b?

Maybe but no studies: Probably, but the information from osha about managing blood born pathogens does not include these products for cleaning. Professional lysol is appropriate for hep a, but not listed for b/c or hiv. The appropriate approach is to use bleach, but not as wipes, instead as a bleach solution. And use gloves and other personal protection devices. Here is the link from osha: http://1.Usa.Gov/mgjiw5. ...Read more

Can you kill herpes simplex virus by anti bacterial wipes or wet ones after an hour 2 after an encounter? I know lysol does

Can you kill herpes simplex virus by anti bacterial wipes or wet ones after an hour 2 after an encounter? I know lysol does

Don't count on it: Have you been exposed? Herpes 1 or 2? The only sure way to avoid herpes is to avoid contact. Possibly oral Acyclovir or valcyclovir will reduce infection rate significantly. Condoms help but are not completely protective. The traditional solution to this problem is to find the right partner and limit sex exclusively to this one person forever. Magic wipes are not the answer. Lysol will not help yo. ...Read more
