Vintage Lysol: All-Purpose Disinfectant and Feminine Hygiene Product?


Written By: Brenda (B.K.) Walker

January 2016

There's a reason Lysol is called an "All Purpose Cleaner"

You know that old saying, "back in the day...," and it usually follows with something along the lines of "...I had to walk 5 miles in the snow to get to school..." or "...women knew their place—they knew how to mind their men..." (yea, I know, I always wondered if that was "mind" as in watch over them so they didn't hurt themselves or if it was "mind" them—like obey them) or "...kids played outside with rocks and sticks—not computers, phones, and video games."

Well, "back in the day..." manufacturers and retailers came up with some pretty imaginative campaigns to sell their products.

For instance, did you know that "back in the day" Lysol saw itself as the means to clean and disinfect a lot more than floors, counters, and toilet bowls.

Yes, the makers of Lysol saw the product as an all-purpose cleaner...including for feminine hygiene; Really?

Lysol was happy to educate the public, as well; and they bought it.

So if you thought the commercials and advertisements were over the top these days, remember, there's a long gray history regarding truth in advertising—nothing like playing a round of "propaganda roulette" with consumers' health.
