That's great news especially since I just bought a few containers of Lysol wipes.  I hope those are one of the two products. 🤞


@wildcat fan 


Are you on the East Coast?   They have been completely out of stock here everywhere!   Hope to see them soon.

@Tinkrbl44 Our Walmart here in South Carolina has been selling the Lysol wipes for the past month or so.  If they are out, I notice they've restocked by the next time I shop.  I go to Walmart every 7 to 10 days--about 30 minutes before they close in the evenings.  I find there aren't many shoppers at that time, and that's when they have employees stocking the shelves.


These Lysol wipes come in 3 packs (80 wipes each) for about $7 or $8.  I meant to put some in the car when I traveled to see my parents, but forgot.  There was a Walmart in Tennessee when we stopped to get gas, so I quickly ran in to see if they had some and they did.  I hope they come to your area soon.  🤞

Re: Lysol Disinfectant

[ Edited ]

Hexol had/has a lingering odor.............recall the odor when I was a child.


Years later, I added a few drops when washing a foam egg carton type of mattress topper..........the odor never did dissipate.


I recently ran across that bottle of Hexol in garage metal cabinet.


EDITED to say/guess that first dilluting only a few drops in a half gallon or gallon of water might not have a strong odor.   Could be that I used too much when washing that foam mattress topper.

Oh, wait!!...............I just went over and Web searched Hexol........also natural disinfectants............Guess what!  I ran across Borax.


Borax is listed as a natural disinfectant.


I have two boxes of Borax, and I don't detect any strong odor whatsoever.


I sometimes add a bit into my laundry, as a towel freshener.


Just wondering if we add a bit of Borax into a quart or half gallon of water, would it be a good disinfectant?  


Just wondering............

That is great but I haven't been able to get any online or pick up or in store anywhere! Anyone else?

When I see the adds on tv for Lysol,

I just think whats the point? You can't get any!

A customer service person told me they hold things out for medical first responders, uless you can find it in stores at just the right time or something like that?!

Lysol spray not visible here in Midwest since February.  Wipes by Lysol or Clorox very  scarcely seen.  Saw some Wal-Mart brand two weeks ago but they were gone  in short order.  I make intentional stop for wipes but no luck.  Two days ago I saw shelves empty at Wal-Mart then I saw woman with triple pack!  I almost followed her to ask where she got - yikes I am desperate.  I asked employees but they said none available.

I would never spray Lysol or anything else on my face other than water. Using a wipe meant for a kitchen counter or bathroom is not something I want to use on my skin. Most drs say soap and water on your skin is best.

I always have Clorox around, am running low on Clorox wipes but have used regular bleach in bathrooms. Cheap and in stock most places now.

I haven't been able to find Lysol spray or the wipes since all this began!  I guess people are very quick on the trigger and must be there the moment the products are put on the shelves!!!

I already had full spray bottles of Lysol in the cabinet under the kitchen sink and both bathrooms. I learned that from my mother. I always have a jug or two of Clorox to dilute for various uses. It seems to be back in stock in most stores now.
