I was wondering about the new Lysol cleaning stuff made with Hydrogen Peroxide. How safe is it really? Does it have a scent?
The active ingredient in this new line of products is hydrogen peroxide, but it's only 1-2 percent of the product. The rest is a couple of hazardous chemicals required to be listed on the MSDS, plus fragrance.
I've been using and recommending plain hydrogen peroxide for cleaning and disinfecting for decades. No need to buy it from Lysol when you can buy it very inexpensively at any drug store.
