Can I bring an aerosol can of Lysol in my checked luggage?
Can I bring it? And is it safe--meaning might it explode or something?

We have always traveled with "booty fresh" (as my son calls it) in our checked bags. We have never had a problem.
I recently flew to Mexico with a 4 FL OZ pump spray bottle of Clorox Anywhere sanitizing spray in my checked bag. No problema.
I packed it in a ziplock bag---just in case.
But it was fine.
I wrapped our can of Lysol in plastic and then packed it in one of the pockets on our suitcase. It worked. No problems -- and I was so thankful to have it along. I sprayed down our room and the baby lounge. I didn't want our little one to get sick.
i also took the clorox spray..b/c it was in a pump i felt it would be safer.
I wanted to bring a bottle of lysol but was not sure if it would start a fire in the plane, don't those bottles explode upon rapid altitude change????
So instead I bought a bag of clorox wipes and took them with me in my checked in suitcase. When we got to the hotel I wiped everything down with the wipes!!
Carla, I had a can of Lysol in my checked bags when we visited. I put it in a ziploc and it was fine.

PS, I sprayed everything and Logan STILL got the rotavirus.:sick:
I don't think it's allowed
You should call the airline you'll be traveling and ask if in doubt. I looked on the [url=]TSA | Transportation Security Administration | U.S. Department of Homeland Security[/url] site and it says only aerosols allowed must be in a pint or quart size ziploc and only allowed 3 oz or less. I think Lysol is much bigger than that. ALSO, only aerosol products allowed are those for personal care. Not sure if Lysol qualifies for that. Also unsure if they always enforce this rule, but says on TSA site that if you bring a prohibited item through security even by accident, it is illegal. Best to know before it happens Smile

Here's partial list of prohibited items from TSA site--the "NOs" refer to carry on and checked:

Lighters with fuel are prohibited in checked baggage, unless they adhere to DOT exemptions, which allow up to two fueled lighters if properly enclosed in a DOT approved case. If you are uncertain as to whether your lighter is prohibited, please refrain from bringing it to the airport. No No
Strike-anywhere Matches - Up to 4 books of safety (non-strike anywhere) matches are permitted as carry-on items, but all matches are prohibited in checked baggage. No No

I would be hesitant to pack it. I work in the airfreight industry and any type of aerosol is considered a "Dangerous Good" and requires special paperwork. Of course 1 can is probably not enough to cause a problem but I would probably not pack it.

i understand it is actually a danger, as it can explode. even if you could sneak it on, i would trust there is a reason they are banned...
I was just on a flight and had a small, travel can of static guard in my checked luggage. When I got to my destination, it was gone!!
I always take the disinfectant wipes with me. I feel they work just as well... Those you will NOT have a problem with..
I called TSA in January to ask whether we could take Lysol in our *checked* luggage. The nice lady on the phone said it was fine.

I'm happy that someone posted what was on the TSA web site. I wonder if I was misinformed, or if something has changed.

We'll bring the wipes on our pick up trip.
