Lysol Toilet Bowl Cleaner Cap Doesn't Dispense Correctly
by Mary Beth Day
Mary Beth shared her experience with Lysol's toilet cleaner.
Mary Beth says:
I love Lysol products, don't get me wrong, but I've got a complaint.
I have a small cleaning service and use Lysol products in homes, offices and construction clean ups, but what is with the caps on the Lysol bottles for the toilet bowl cleaner?
I have purchased many 3 packs and single bottles, all with the cap that you push in and turn, and as soon as you pour it into the bowl it comes out the side...GRRRR, it's soooo aggravating not to mention if it gets on my customers' carpet it could be disastrous!!
Please Lysol, change your bottle caps so I don't have to look for another brand!!!!
Sorry Mary Beth to hear you are having trouble with the caps. I can see how it coming out the sides would not be a good thing.
Has anyone else experienced this problem with the Lysol toilet bowl cleaner bottles they have used?
Carolyn responded to the review above, sharing her experiences with the toilet bowl cleaner caps.
Yes!!! I have so many problems with these new caps that all the toilet cleaners are using!
They are VERY hard to open and then they come almost all the way off and leak down the sides of the container!
I have to keep several paper towels handy to keep from getting it all over my floors or counters! Please change back to the old style!!
Thanks Carolyn for sharing your experience.
I know why the toilet cleaner caps have changed, at least partially, which is as a child safety feature. While I appreciate that, I wish they could design a cap that was both safe for children and pets, while also useable by adults.
I know that may be a tall order, but it I can dream, can't I? It brings up a good point though -- who else has issues with these caps and what have you done to fix the problem, if anything?
In addition, have you found any particular brands to be better or worse for ease of dispensing the cleaner? I'd love to hear your thoughts about this issue. You can share your toilet cleaner reviews here, for Lysol or any other brand, or read others that have already been submitted.
Then I sprinkled baking soda over the stain and let it set about a minute. I took a wet scrub brush and scrubbed the baking soda into the carpet. Then wiped up what was left with a wet rag. Then I vacuumed it.
It looks pretty good!
I won't surprise me, when it dries, to have some blue tint left. But it looks like it did well.
(I wanted to go ahead and post this, before I forgot! I'll try to remember to follow up in a couple days and let you know how it looks.)
Serious Problem With Lysol Professional Toilet Bowl Cleaner Bottle
Judy shared her problem with Lysol Professional toilet bowl cleaner, and has unfortunately joined the ranks of those who have had staining of their home surfaces because of malfunctions with the bottle design.
I have had serious problems with the product rushing out the seams and sides of the bottle.
It got on my hands and I set it down on the vanity/counter so I could clean it up. In no time it left a deep blue stain in the center of my long counter top.
The stain will not come out.
This container is inadequate and unstable.
The warnings about this problem are in fine print.
Lysol will not take any responsibility or compensate me.
Sorry to hear about this Judy.
Now I've gotten reported problems with the cap or bottle of this product causing stains in their carpet, clothes and now countertop.
Obviously this is a stain I need to figure out how to remove -- but I feel everyone's pain. I still haven't come up with a great solution yet.
