Flash clean and care all surfaces disinfectant spray

Just a heads up for Asthma sufferers. The above is on offer in Tesco. It states its mild and safe to use on all surfaces HOWEVER!!!!! I am a very mild Asthma sufferer, I have just used this stuff to clean my bathroom and it caused irritation to my lungs almost immediately, I immediately became wheezy and short of breath which developed into a very tight chest necessitating immediate use of my inhaler and spending the last 25 minutes outside. I am still wheezing now though not as bad. I have just looked at the Proctor and gamble site and it states if symptoms persist then seek medical

Suggest you stay away from this stuff unless you like visiting A and E!!!!

It's on offer in Asda (where I work) too and I bought and used this the other day but haven't suffered any effects at all. Worth taking note of so thanks for the warning!!!


What may be mild and safe to use on an inanimate object may not be mild and safe for the human body, skin or lungs!

I use Ecover or other ecofriendly stuff as they put on more or less all the ingredients and are often kind to lungs as well.

Also, avoid sprays! a quick squirt from a bottle and a good slosh around with a cloth is just as good!
