Hi. I realize that this post is 2 years old...but i had to post in case someone searching the internet comes across it. Lysol and Clorox wipes will NOT kill the viruses and bacteria that cause diarrhea and vomiting...this is why it is continuing to spread. There is controversy as to whether Lysol brand 3 even kills the Norovirus that causes stomach bugs. The only thing proven to kill it on surfaces is bleach. Hand washing is also the key to prevention...and someone referred to the flu. Stomach viruses are not the "flu". Influenza is a respiratory illness...which can be killed by Lysol wipes. To recap....Lysol wipes will not protect you from gastroenteritis...or a stomach virus.
