Dangers of lysol spray

The Lysol line of products includes sprays you can carry to industrial-size containers. Lysol manufactures disinfectant sprays, toilet bowl cleaners, disinfecting wipes, all-purpose cleaners, air-sanitising sprays, kitchen and bathroom cleaners, and hand sanitisers. Despite the precautions, there are still dangers to using Lysol sprays in your home.


Ethanol is the primary ingredient in Lysol spray and is highly flammable, especially under pressure. Prolonged inhalation in a closed environment will create headaches, cough, fatigue and drowsiness. Skin exposure might result in severe redness and burning. Lysol spray uses denatured ethanol, which can cause ethanol poisoning when ingested.

Carbon Dioxide

Lysol spray contains carbon dioxide. It is colourless and odourless. In low amounts, carbon dioxide can affect your concentration. Increased amounts will cause your breathing rate to increase. And prolonged exposure can cause death from suffocation.

Dangers of lysol spray


Keep Lysol spray out of the reach of children and do not expose your children or pets to the spray. Do not spray on or near food because of the risk of ethanol poisoning.


When using Lysol spray, be sure there is plenty of ventilation. Do not spray near your face and risk inhaling the fumes. Use on fabrics such as rayon, acrylic plastics and wood will cause damage.


Do not dispose Lysol spray containers in the trash. Contact your local disposal or recycling organisations for information about disposing of aerosol containers.
