    If Lysol Disinfectant kills 99.9% of viruses & bacteria, will spraying it again get the other .1%?

    No, it will only get 99.9% so there will be 0.0001% left!

    No, no matter how much you spray, there is always going to be that one virus or bacteria that covers their butts. smile

    Well it should ... according to the math ... you should be ahead by 98% when you spray the second time ... Right???
    Fun query!!  smile

    No, spraying again will not get the 1%. Virus is either DNA or RNA. Assume that the living matter in virus is the DNA or RNA. Although conventional medicine says that virus is neither dead nor alive. Hepatitis B virus consists of empty protein surface (non infectious) and protein surface with DNA that is infectious. There are more empty protein surface than protein surface with DNA in a teaspoon of blood. The same is true in the air. However, blood test or test for antigen will recognize both empty protein surface and protein surface with DNA. That is false positive. That 1% could be empty protein surface that cannot be "killed" because they don't have DNA. Anyway, the don't replicate and infect.
    A virus comes alive when it looks for a hole in the cell to get in and inserts its genes in the chromosomes of the host.

    Ah! Ah! Ah!  Great question, TheHoleStory! 
    I think the 1 % left will never be touch because the product just doesn't kill them.  The bad part is that some bad virus and bacteria might develop and resisting to those products!  Where does the fight end?

    No, because Lysol just can't get at that .1% of viruses left on the surface. I'm still looking for Lysol to develop a secondary product. They could call it "Lysol II" a product that kills .1% of viruses and bacteria! What a marketing challenge that would be.

    Well, spraying again will kill 99.9% of 1% but the main point is that it is not a sterlizer so it only reduces the viral and bacterial load so infection becomes less likely.
