    Does Listerine kill them? Does it matter which kind of Listerine? I'm looking for something else I can spray things with if I need to, other than just alcohol. Is there anything else that will also work?

    I guess it could possibly be a contact killer, I don't know. I wouldn't think it would be too good to spray around for that purpose though. Most likely leave a sticky, colored residue.

    Hi, we had a discussion a while back regarding "Dettol", a similar product. It may give you some perspective.

    Probably, but I wouldn't go splashing it around. I think it would leave a sticky, colored residue. You'd be better off putting rubbing alcohol in a spray bottle, if you want a cheap contact killer. Sterifab is also reported to work (has 40% alcohol, I think).
