PARSIPPANY, N.J., Aug. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, LYSOL® announces a new era of cleaning with the launch of LYSOL® Power & Free™, a revolutionary line of household products that harnesses the versatility of hydrogen peroxide to deliver a more powerful clean (on soils like soap scum and tough grease) than bleach.  Each of the four LYSOL® Power & Free™ cleaning products release thousands of micro-bubbles that penetrate deep to remove tough stains, leaving behind a fresh, clean scent with no chemical residue. Since it doesn't have the harshness found in bleach, LYSOL® Power & Free™ helps to free households from the bleach smell, use of protective wear and worrying about the family.
