The product I am discussing here is recommended by INDIAN MEDICAL ASSOCIATION.

When it comes to cleanliness of our home, we are very particular to keep the floors glazing, and free from germs and insects. There are a number of products that one will come across in the market but a very few of them will be worth trusting. I had been to a number of such disinfectant surface cleaner, but could not stick to one as if one is effective, the smell is bad and if the scent is good, not much effective, or something else. Finally I came across Lizol, the promising disinfectant surface cleaner which has a soothing citrus scent and helps keeping the floor clean and free from insects.

The product is liquid in consistency, yellowish green to lemony in color with a mild and pleasing citrus smell. It comes in a plastic bottle, looks good in shape with a cap at the top of it which can be opened to pour the disinfectant for use. I have been regularly using the product for about 11 months and am happy using it.

How to use:

Mix the disinfectant solution to water in a suitable proportion, depending upon the toughness of the stains and mop the surface with the mixture, no need to rinse thereafter. If the stain is very tough, you can use the content without diluting for better result.


Active ingredients used in the product is benzalkonium chloride solution (I.P. 4% w/v). The disinfectant also includes quinoline yellow, ionic and non-ionic surfactants, perfume, preservative, and water as noted to the back of the bottle.

Good News:

The product is safe on all the surfaces including ceramic, marble, mosaic, granite, etc. The product is germicidal and kills almost 99% germs for which it is most trusted surface cleaner for home and offices.

My experience:

Come to my home and you will be greeted by a citrus smell as I regularly use the in higher dilution just because I love the scent it has. Moreover, the home becomes lively when it is smells fresh almost all the day long. At first I had to struggle a little with the stains on my kitchen, but once all the tough stains are removed, I don't find any trouble removing the recent stains. I am comfortable with the item and don't think I am going to change it unless someone suggest me of something better than this.
