Curious to see if Lysol weighed in on another epidemic, I came across this ad.
Lysol did factor in another epidemic- the 1918 Spanish Influenza epidemic running a series of ads. The disinfectant was endorsed by the Board of Health urging the use of Lysol in one’s home to prevent the spread of the dreaded disease, just as they did in hospitals and factories.
Not a word about ingesting it
To my surprise, as I looked through the ads, I could not find a single endorsement from President Wilson to enjoy a libation of Lysol to knock the virus out of your system.
Maybe in the 1917 Flu Epidemic of Trump’s imagination, that was the drink du jour.
