Phenol* in it and that's the element that worked for what you need. The "New and Improved" Lysol* doesn't have it. There are places that still have the little brown bottle w/ phenol but I'm finding it harder and harder to find. You're probably better off just ordering a bacteriacide from Bruce Rittle or another supplier

I Skipped it...

I also learned from the McKenzie videos as well as other books from WASCO. I have skipped the step in adding Lysol to my bird washes. Dawn dishsoap is a commonly used soap to help degrease birds. Dawn has a new line of Anti-Bacterial dishsoaps that work very well in adding the anti-bacterial ingredients to your bird wash. I also agree with Kristoph that you are probably better off with a product designed for anti-bacterial use in taxidermy such as a product offered by a company like Bruce Rittle's.
I have not had any problems using the Anti-Bacterial soaps made by Dawn. In fact the results are the same as when I added Lysol to the soap solution.

I looked all over the place and couldn't find it then happened to look on a shelf at the local drug store when picking up a prescription and there it was! I would suggest calling the Lysol company and asking them where their nearest carrier is....

I have seen the lysol at some Wal-Mart's and I have also seen it at Albertson's Grocery.

Just buy Phenol

You can buy Phenol (where legal) usually from your local Druggist or Chemical company. Be sure to use all precautions and ALWAYS wear rubber gloves. It only takes a few drops per gallon of water. Phenol like many other chemicals will absorb through your skin, where it stores in your Liver..forever.
