With a bad flu going around this year I have been keeping my room as clean as possible. Lysoling has been my friend. I was wondering do you think it is safe to actually Lysol things like my xylophones and hand drums. I already Lysol my mallets (put them in the box spray close the box and wait till the next day to open). My preschoolers like to stick those up their noses (gross I know). I know some instruments are perfectly fine but others I have questiosn about. What is your opinion?
I don’t know about Lysol (I hate the smell of Lysol spray; it gives me a headache so I don’t use it even at home), but I have used Clorox disinfecting wipes or a generic version of them (which my school has supplied) on instruments with no damage. I think they are made to be safe for use on finished wood, so they will be fine for your xylophone bars, maracas, etc. I can’t remember if I’ve used them on the skins of hand drums–you could do a spot test in one small area to make sure it works ok before cleaning the whole surface.
