Taking care of a bedridden patient at my home, I was frustrated with trying to find something that really got the bedding to really be CLEAN! Bleach is too hard on the fabric and too likely to leave spots where the color is removed. Lysol has a distinctive not pleasant odor, but this just gets everything clean, sanitized, and pleasant smelling. I LOVE IT! I now use it on smelly socks, work clothes, and all of my whites.
