Advice to consumers from Lysol,Please don't drink our cleaning products.
The company that makes Lysol and Dettol is urging customers not to consume their cleaning products after President Donald Trump suggested the possibility of injecting disinfectants to protect people from coronavirus.
Due to recent speculation and social media activity, RB (the makers of Lysol and Dettol) has been asked whether internal administration of disinfectants may be appropriate for investigation or use as a treatment for coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2).

As with all products, our disinfectant and hygiene products should only be used as intended and in line with usage guidelines. Please read the label and safety information.
