A: Because some of us have jobs where our clothes get gross stuff on them and if they're not washed with sanitizer(can't use bleach,have black uniform) they start to stink horribly
A: This product is perfect for people who purchase clothing at thrift shops, yard sales, second-hand stores, etc.
A: Nobody said "we need to sanitize everything." Some people need to sanitize some things. For example, I have cloth bedding for my guinea pigs. I can wash it on hot, but it still doesn't come out smelling fresh. I don't "need to sanitize everything", but to avoid bad smells & bacteria from guinea pig bedding, It behooves me to sanitize it.
A: No one is forcing you to purchase. They came out with the product because of people like you who don't feel the need to be clean.
A: If you go to the details under this product on the Target website and hit see more. All the full directions on how to use and more are there.
A: Open the back sticker for recommended dosing. It says to add to the rinse cycle and let it soak for at least 20+ minutes (I have top loading old machine, I just reopen once it adds water for the rinse and add the sanitizer, leaving it open for 20 minutes, then close it to drain). Most washers should have a pause/delay feature that doesn't force an immediate drain, if it doesn't let you specify a longer period you may need to remain nearby to select it multiple times. Not all laundry needs this level of sanitizing, high water temps and high dryer setting for certain things like towels is fine. I only use on clothes that I've worn in public during this pandemic, before that it was only my work uniform.
A: I read on the Lysol website that it needs to soak in just water for at least 15 minutes to properly sanitize the clothing...it said not to mix with detergent or softener or it will deactivate the sanitizer...i just soak first with sanitizer then add detergent and start cycle..(I work in a lichen, pant bottoms get GROSS!)
A: There are instructions on the back. It's one of those labels that you have to peel the sticker and you'll see the instructions. Basically, pour 2 capfuls (line one) in the rinse cycle or pour it in the softener thingy. You have option to soak for 15 min. Also, if you have HE washer, i think it says pour 1 capful - not sure on that.
A: Rinse cyle go to lysol for instruction.
A: This is my second bottle and I add a capful into the wash with detergent.
A: When used as directed on the product label, Lysol Laundry Sanitizer is appropriate for use with septic systems.
A: If you overuse this product or other sanitizing products that are going down your drain they could negatively affect the good bacteria need to treat your wastewater in your septic system.
A: Lysol® Laundry Sanitizer kills 99.9% of bacteria like Staphylococcus Aureus & Klebsiella pneumoniae. Lysol® products have not been proven effective against Parvovirus.
A: You should consult with a reputable vet about how to best kill Parvo. From experience I can tell you that it's not easy to kill & bleach is usually involved. As this product does not contain bleach I'm doubtful it would be effective. You can always call the number on the bottle to be 100% sure.
A: No, you should not mix it. Skip fabric softener when using Lysol Crisp Linen Scented Laundry Sanitizer.
A: Yes that's fine.......
A: They now make an unscented variety. This isn't it.
A: It's not the worse smell but trust me your clothes will come out smelling fresh and clean. Someone said to add it to the rinse cycle or Fabric softner cycle but I use mine with detergent and detergent booster .
A: Yes it does kill mold
A: I would try it not sure but my son left his laundry in the wash and it had that awful smell donI rewashed with this product and detergent and his clothes came out fresh.
A: It depends on whether you have top loading or front loading machine. If its a front loading machine you can get approximately 12 uses and for top loading machines is approximately 7 to 8. You must read the instructions and its warnings.
A: That depends on you I usually use a capful and I use it in conjunction with my detergent and my detergent booster.
A: Lysol Laundry Sanitizer should not be used in conjunction with fabric softener, as it will impact the efficacy of the product.
