Lysol is a household name that I trust. Thats why I have stuck with Lysol Spray Disinfectant for so long. I like to switch up and try different scents, and the most recent one I have tried is the Green Apple Breeze scent. I have read other reviews on this scent, and I think I am the only one out there that likes it. This particular scent comes in a pretty bright green can- the can I have is an 18 oz can, and I believe I paid about $3.50 for it.

Here is what Lysol has to say about this spray: (taken from the website)
You do all you can to keep your kids safe and warm but you cant always keep them away from germs during the cold and flu season. Your best defense against nasty cold and flu viruses is prevention and protection.

My husband says that I have cleaning spells. This is true, especially after I or someone in the house has been sick. Over Christmas, I had Strep throat. I was really concerned about my 2 year old and my 4 year old catching it. I sprayed Lysol in all the rooms and on the couch, and carpet. They did not catch Strep throat! Now, that might have been pure luck, but at least I did take the precautionary measures by using Lysol- because it does kill Strep.
I really use this spray a lot during the winter- thats when there is an uprising of germs indoors. I also work at an elementary school, and we use this spray a lot to sanitize chairs and tables.
I find this spray useful for all sorts of stuff- it will take the stinky out of the garbage can, and diaper pail. I also use it on a new shower curtain before anyone takes a shower- it really helps to prevent mold and mildew on it, making it last a whole lot longer. I have also used it on the tile in the shower, it will prevent you from scrubbing mildew and mold so much. Helps bring down the odor of stinky cat litter also. I also use it in the car from time to time, just to keep the air sanitized. You never really think about that old air in the car, but it could be carrying bad ol germs too. I have sprayed it on the doorknobs, but I find that it leaves a sticky residue and a white film on them. Also, I periodically spray my shoes out with Lysol- I had a nurse tell me to do that after having a nail fungus.
As for the Apple Breeze Scent, I guess I am the only one on Epinions that likes it. All the other reviews I have read about this scent say they think it smells terrible. But, I like it myself. I think it smells like green apples. It sort of reminds me of Jolly Rancher green apple candy.
Lysol is good stuff- go get some!
