Lysol Kitchen Spray? It touches our skin, and on our counters where we eat and around our babies to clean their toys...the one's they have now are family friendly, and if it's just getting a stain out and I'm not bathing her in it, I don't see the big deal. She's never reacted to it in her life. I love my horses the same as you or anyone else- and let's face it, half the stuff we use on ourselves is toxic- hair dye/hair spray, bug spray such as Off...there are tons of stuff, even some of the food we eat, that are really bad. My dad had to go to the hospital from chlorine inhilation when he serviced pools back in the day.

I don't spray lysol around my kitchen, or on my childrens toys, they put those things in thier mouths. I clean my house with good ol fashioned soap, bleach, water (lemon juice is great too lol) I also use peroxide to disinfect my counters, I then wipe clean with a damp cloth to get peroxide off the counters, it's also very safe. As for my kids toys they get soaked in dish soap for 5 min and scrubbed then rinsed with warm water.

Lysol is toxic no matter how you look at it, here is what the company tells you to do with thier wipes and how to use them:

Usage Instructions
To disinfect hard non-porous, non-food contact surface:
To Clean / Remove Allergens:
  • Use fresh wipe on surface.
  • Repeat for stubborn stains.
To Sanitize / Disinfect:
  • Pre-clean surface.
  • Use enough fresh wipes to thoroughly wet surface.
To Sanitize:
  • Allow to remain wet for 30 seconds.
To Disinfect:
  • Allow to remain wet for 10 minutes.
  • Allow surface to air dry. Toss dirty wipe away.
For surfaces that come in contact with food:
  • Use only on hard non-porous surfaces and rinse thoroughly with water.
To Prevent the Growth of Mold and Mildew and their odors:
  • Pre-clean hard, non-porous surfaces.
  • Wipe surface and allow to remain wet for 10 minutes.
  • Allow surface to air dry. Repeat applications in weekly intervals or when mold and mildew growth appears.
I seem to have gotten your hackles all up, it was not intended that way. I see you were serious about using the product on your animal, I do beleive you love your animals and family, just letting you know that it is toxic.

I read absolutly everything I get my hands on, there's too much junk out there these days we all havto be careful what we buy and how we use it. The companies that make these things don't care about the consumer, all they care about is the bottom line and if they made thier quarter's quota.

What about Lysol for brushes? I use to use it sanitize my brushes, granted, they were pretty dry the next time I used them and my horse never had a problem.

Anything that disinfects I normally rinse with water just in case it damages w/e area i'm cleaning lol, my brushes @ work I clean by soaking in barbacide for 10 min then rinsing them thouroughly with warm water. (barbacide kills EVERYTHING lol including hiv) I'm a hairdresser/salon owner so i've seen some pretty nasty clients and employees, im a stickler for having tools and workspace cleaned at all times. (takes a few min. between clients, and less clean up at the end of the day)
