Lysol Allergy-Proofing Your Home Review and Giveaway

When Spring starts most people are happy and excited for good weather. For me I dread it! I love the sunshine, the happy attitude people get and the fun to be had outdoors but I hate all the pollen and allergies that attack me! I can not go outside on really bad days but I still get the sneezing, runny nose and itchy eyes in my house. I knew it must be the dust and pollen from outside settling int he house. I tried using a wet paper towel to clean up but that just made the stuff smear onto the surfaces. Lysol has many great tips and advise on how to deal with allergies in your own home on their website for the Allergy-Proofing Your Home series.

I tried using the Lysol Disinfecting Wipes and loved them. They are easy to use, just pull out a ready single towel from the container and your ready to clean. It easily removed pollen particles, pet dander (we have a big black lab who is so furry!) and dust mite debris. I can go on forever how gross dust mites are. I worked at a place that sold vacuums when I was 14. My brother was a sales man and I was a telemarketer! Funny stories from that I will share later. I was just glad to be cleaning away all the junk that makes my allergies flare up. I started with all of our window sills since I love to let fresh air in. I noticed a big difference in the last few days after daily wiping down the windows with the Lysol Wipes. Just 10 minutes a day and its so easy to do.

Wiping down the Pollen and Dander form my windows

The Disinfectant Spray is a staple in our house. I already buy that in bulk from Sam's Club. I use it on the door handles all over the house, the garbage can and the bathroom. I know for me if there is a bit of mildew in the bathroom I get what I have deemed "the itchy stitchies" its when I get red bumps that itch like crazy after I shower. I have been using the Lysol Spray daily after I shower and there has been no mildew build up. Now all I have to do is get my husband to remember to do it too!

The one item I squealed about when I saw the commercial on TV is the Lysol No-Touch Hand Soap System. My husband laughed and said they must have made that just for you! I wash my hands often to not only not spread germs but to cut back on the pollen I get on my hands from being outside. I swear the wind blows and I get hives! This new hand soap dispenser is awesome. It looks great since it is a stainless steel look and its almost magical lol! I know this will be really handy to have for guest and for when my little guy starts to wash his own hands. Plus its a great way to not use to much soap and be wasteful since it dispenses you the perfect amount.

Tell me what is your Funniest Allergy Story?


Mine was on the night before my wedding! I broke out into hives from pollen and pet dander all over my body! I was crying that I was going to look horrible in the morning. I was scratching all over and my eyes were watery and getting swollen.  I looked like I was a turtle shell. I was trying to be calm and collected and my hubby to be thought I looked funny but assured me I would be ok eventually. Thankfully after a lot of lotion and some medication I was better in the morning. If I would have been using my Lysol for pollen and dander back then I am sure it would have not had that happen. Oh the things we eventually learn about how to keep a house clean!
