Lysol vs Clorox Wipes

PatJune 6, 2010

Please, do you prefer one over the other for best cleaning?

I prefer the Clorox wipes in the so-called stylish container. They seem much easier to dispense than the traditional packaging. The print on the container is immaterial b/c it's always stored, and I've never suffered from cleaning wipe tub envy.

In terms of efficacy, I think they both disinfect (and/or sanitize?) but Clorox doesn't require the surface to stay wet as long.

I don't use either or any other such product. I think they are a waste of money. Plain soap and water works fine for me and my family and I'll bet we don't get any more illnesses than you. In fact I haven't had a cold or flu in 2 years.

I am partial to Clorox wipes because I am very partial to cleaning with bleach based products.

I'd find "plain soap and water" a cumbersome approach for cleaning bathroom/kitchen surfaces.

missmary, i have known for some time that Clorox wipes are "bleach-free," that is why I am wondering which is best at cleaning. They think if you see the word "clorox," you will assume bleach. Uh!

They both contain variants of the same disinfecting agent, which is not bleach.

I don't use these often, only when someone in the house is sick, and use both brands. I'm a little sensitive to scents, so I pick according to which scent in the store seems least bothersome to me.

I wish Lysol still made an unscented kitchen spray disinfectant. It was terrific for disinfecting in the kitchen and didn't bother me at all. I haven't seen it in stores the past couple of years.

Whichever one you choose, be sure to dispose of in the trash and not the toilet- the material does not break down like paper.

I don't use either one because they contain chemicals that aggravate my allergies. I also wouldn't want my small grandchildren to put their fingers on a table or counter wiped with one of those wipes because the fingers usually end up in their mouths.

For those of you who think wiping with disinfectant wipes is killing bad bacteria, here's a study that contradicts that theory. Often times you are killing good bacteria and allowing the bad to go unchecked. I too, like bigdogmom worry about ingesting those chemicals.

Please check out this site. It is an eyeopener

Here is a link that might be useful: clinical study on disinfectant wipes

The wipes are only used for cleaning the outside of the toilets, which happens as needed or after entertaining. Not really a participant in the anti-bacterial cleaning product craze, the disposable wipes are a matter of convenience (and part psychological comfort) for that task.

Lol, the article supports my gross-out reaction to the idea of using the same kitchen towel to wipe your hands during food prep, then wipe the counter. Ew.

I like flushable wipes. I used them in the bathroom. In the morning, i'd wash my face, grap a wipe and run over the sink, faucet and handles, then over the toilet seat, then flush.

I like the CostCo Kirkland brand. They are larger and sturdier IMO. IÂm starting to use them for the FlyLadyÂs Swish and Swipe which IÂm *loving*. My bathrooms are always company ready now  which really does feel great.
