Description

The experiment compared the effectiveness of killing Escherichia coli of the name brand household cleaner Lysol to generic cleaners. Each E.coli culture was allowed to incubate in the cleaning solution and then washed to remove the chemicals from the bacteria. A live and dead stain was applied and the sample was viewed under the confocal microscope. The results of the Lysol and the generic cleaners were very similar. A difference was that Lysol had a slightly higher percentage of death. These results show that Lysol is slightly more potent in killing E.coli. Both can be used as effective household cleaners, but Lysol was slightly more potent in killing E.Coli in this experiment.
