Cleanliness is in the Air

The way we care for our homes is constantly evolving, and the latest innovation from Lysol® is sure to change the household cleaning game once again. Lysol® Air Sanitizer is the first and only air sanitizing spray approved by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) that’s proven to kill 99.9% of airborne viruses and bacteria while whisking away unwanted odors. Using Lysol Air Sanitizer helps reduce the spread of airborne, illness-causing pathogens such as cold, influenza and coronavirus.

The Importance of Fresh Air

The COVID-19 pandemic has undoubtedly heightened our awareness when it comes to the risks associated with airborne pathogens. While the pandemic has come to an end, memories of masking up, wiping down our groceries and isolating from friends and family linger. With a new understanding of the risks posed by airborne pathogens, many of us are looking for ways to take better care of our air and prevent the spread of germs.

While traditional air fresheners mask odors and disinfectants sanitize surfaces, Lysol® Air Sanitizer is a first-of-its-kind product that freshens the air in every sense, helping us create a sanitized environment where people can thrive but germs can’t.

How Does it Work?

In collaboration with experts in aerobiology and the EPA, Lysol® developed a rigorous testing protocol to measure the air sanitizer’s effectiveness. Robust testing established Lysol® Air Sanitizer as the first and only antimicrobial product approved by the EPA to effectively kill both viruses and bacteria in the air.

Lysol® Air Sanitizer’s unique formula contains active molecules that are hygroscopic in nature, which means the molecules can attach to microorganisms suspended in the air. Once attached, the molecules break down the structural membrane of the microorganisms, killing 99.9% of bacteria like Staphylococcus aureus and Klebsiella pneumoniae in just 4 minutes, and airborne viruses like influenza, cold and pneumovirus in just 12 minutes. The spray freshens the air the same way, attaching to odor-causing bacteria in the air and killing it - leaving your air sanitized, not just perfumed.

For over a century, Lysol® has been at the forefront of germ-killing technology, and this legacy continues with Lysol® Air Sanitizer. Explore more healthy habits and learn about tips to boost your immunity.
