You also have to be careful that the spray/wipe products you're using in your room kill noro. Many don't.

It should also be pointed out that not all stomach viruses are norovirus.
Yes you are right it's not always noro but this time of year it is the most likely culprit. I was just pointing out that the best defense is the old standby of hand washing.

NO! It is NOT the same as hair spray.

Only things in aerosol cans that are allowed in checked baggage are things you can spray on YOUR OWN BODY. Toiletries are defined that way.

A can of lysol is not allowed. A can of lysol will be removed from your checked baggage. This is not only per TSA regulations, but also per the FAA hazardous materials list

I work for TSA.

Guess you've just been lucky. I rarely get sick but last trip to WDW I ended up with pneumonia. I don't normally disinfect either but I did have wipes on me just in case of a mess. When I entered the room and saw someone else's finger prints on the mirror, crumbs around the table, and glass rings from someone else's drink on the dresser, I knew the room hadn't been properly cleaned or sanitized. Never know when you'll run into lazy mousekeeping

If it goes thru the X-ray machine, and the machine does not flag it for search, the bag will not be checked. You have gotten lucky. That's all I can say on it.

We've taken small cans of it in our carryon bags, kept them in the clear ziplocs with our other liquids, and put them in the tubs for inspection. Never had a problem in over 20 flights in the last 2 years -- both domestic and international.

I'd like to know how an Xray can distinguish between a can of hairspray and a can of Lysol. If memory serves, Xrays don't show labels. Surely not every bag that has an aerosol can is flagged for further inspection??

Actually, it is and unlike hairspray Lysol technically is not allowed in checked baggage. Airline rules allow you to take personal care products--such as hairspray and deodorant--in your checked bags but do not allow aerosol household products--such as Lysol or cleaning sprays--in checked luggage. You may get away with it, but be prepared to have it removed from your bags if they are checked behind the scenes at the airport.

I bring a small bottle of Lysol in my Baggie in my carry on bag and no one ever said I couldn't bring it. I carry a bottle in my checked luggage and it has been searched (I had that letter in my luggage). They didn't remove the Lysol either. Is this a new rule? I also carry spray glass cleaner for my sons glasses and they didn't take that out?

I wasn't trying to be a smarta$$, but just trying to visualize the practicality. Think of the number of aerosol products you might put in a suitcase: hairspray, sunscreen, deodorant, etc. I'd lay odds that almost every suitcase that is scanned has at least a couple. But what do I know- I'm just a traveller, not a TSA agent. Actually, just for ease of use, I take the wipes- then I'm not looking around for something to wipe the spray with
