star rating 5

With the onset of autumn, sunny and warm days that allow you to open up doors and windows to keep the home fresh start to dwindle. Wet and colder weather brings dampness, rain-soaked pets, muddy sports uniforms, and dirty work gear – and the odours that come with them! Luckily, Dettol are here to help with their ultimate in germ-busting freshness!

Fast and effective, Dettol Glen 20 Disinfectant Spray is easy to use and cares for your family by killing 99.9% of germs* and viruses** on hard and soft surfaces that you come in contact with every day, such as door handles, bins and toilet areas. It also eliminates odour-causing bacteria, leaving your home smelling wonderfully fresh.

Dettol Glen 20 is fast, easy to use and effective at:

  • Killing 99.9% of germs and viruses on hard and soft surfaces.
  • Killing the source of mould allergens and controlling the growth of mould and mildew on hard surfaces.
  • Eliminating odour causing bacteria to leave your home smelling fresh and clean. Dettol Glen 20 “gets to the source” of the odour without heavy perfume and eliminates damp musty odours in areas where air does not circulate. Ordinary non-germicidal sprays can’t do this.

    Awesome stuff! My daughter recently had a tummy bug and I used this on the toilet and bowls after she finished using them, and no one else caught it thankfully! It is also an amazing deodorizer, we have a kitten and have been spraying this around the litterbox when she does number 2s and it gets rid of the smell almost instantly. Will be on my grocery list in the future that’s for sure!

    I loved the spray form of this product. It makes it so easy to pick up and do a quick clean – no measuring, pouring, or spilling. I used it mostly in the bathroom and on our hardwood floors. I sprayed it on, then used a mop or cloth to wipe it in.
    The smell was fresh. I’d recommend this product and would use it again. As you can see from my before & after photos, it even cleaned the bath after my children had painted all over it (and themselves) with homemade fingerpaint.

    Thanks for selecting me to trial this product. My main reason to trial this product is I have a really smelly nappy bin that I’m forever having to clean and it’s been hard to get rid of the smell. I do have a bin liner in the bin (a plastic bag) but it still gets smell trapped in the bin. Soo… I removed the bag, gave it a good spray and wiped it away with a paper towel. I found the spray can easy to use, I liked the smell and was really happy with the results. In the past I have used disinfectant cleaning wipes. They worked well but I felt bad about sending the wipe off to the rubbish dump and it not breaking down. I feel much better about the idea of spraying and wiping with a paper towel that shouldn’t be as hard to break down, not so bad on the environment and it leaves the bin nice and dry and healthy compared to wipes which still leaves the bin damp and then you have to wait for it to dry before you pop in another rubbish bin liner. So overall, love the spray and would totally recommend it to others:) Prob the only thing that could be a winner would be if it had a safety shut off switch to stop kids getting into it (just like my deodorant can does) but the product will be up on the top shelf with other cleaning products anyway:)

    Thanks for giving us a chance to try the Dettol GLEN 20 its great how it kills 99.9% of germs its great that there is so many different places you can use the spray I found it good for the door handles in the toilet and good for using on the rubbish bin .It would have been good if you could have used it on wooden bench tops I did not like that I had to wait 10 minutes for it to dry .It did leave a nice smell thanks again for choosing us to try it

    Firstly, thanks for the opportunity to try this out. I was lucky enough to receive a can of the crisp linen spray, I’m not a huge fan of the scent but in future I will buy the citrus scent to give that a try. I love the ease and convenience of just whiping the can of disinfectant out to disinfect key areas like toilet and kitchen within minutes. Very handy with 3 small children in the house!!

  6. karena 26/04/2018 at 9:55 am

    So versatile. We have used this product for cleaning the sink, airing shoes, the bathroom and other common areas around the house. Like how the scent is not too overpowering (sorry keep tryin to add a photo but keeps being over 2mb)

  7. Jtnz 25/04/2018 at 9:02 pm

    Thanks for the opportunity to try the Dettol Glen 20. I was excited to try this spray and I’ve used it far more than initially thought I would. We recently moved house and it has been great with cleaning the house and making it feel fresh and new. I’ve also found it really handy to spray in and around the bin to reduce smells. The crisp linen scent is ok, next time I would try one of the other variants.

  8. Angelstar 25/04/2018 at 8:44 pm

    I have enjoyed trialing this product. I sprayed teenager bedrooms, bathrooms, remotes, pretty much everything that is handeled. I even sprayed a bag where a sneaky mouse decided to hide. This will be a regular purchase. Thank you.

  9. Naomi 25/04/2018 at 7:05 pm

    Dettol glen 20 is a fantastic product! Our family have used it lots over the past few weeks with illness in the home has been great knowing that we have a spray to keep on top of spreading germs and bugs! is great for spraying door handles and kids toys! Love the fresh linen smell, very impressed by this product, would buy and use it again! Thanks for the opportunity to try it! 🙂

  10. Melapino 25/04/2018 at 10:34 am

    Thanks for the opportunity to review thos product. I was using it in the kitchen mostly! Then i fell ill with a stomach bug and used it on the door handles, light switches and other surfaces i had been in contact with. As a mum I can’t afford for my baby to get sick so great timing to receive this product. Thank!

  11. kim saunders 25/04/2018 at 8:51 am

    Thanks team for giving me the chance to try the Dettol Glen 20. It actually smells great not fake like some of those toilet sprays smell.It actually does what it says and eliminates smells.
    I must admit when I read than I thought yeah yeah sure,, but yanno what it actually does..Especially after nappy changing, I mean that smell ;lingers. I spray the changing mat as well which is great gives me peace of mind that I am eliminating germs there. It also dries quicker.. I use it round the rubbish bin cos that to can cause quite a smell. I like the fact that is so versatile I will definitely buy this again and keep it in a few rooms toilet and bathroom as well.
    I have also got ideas from some other reviewers and will start to use it on window sills, door handles light switches etc. Think I’ll also attack her soft toys with it so much easier that putting in the washing machine and I know it’ll kill more germs as well.
    Thanks again for choosing me as part of your trial.

  12. Amber 24/04/2018 at 7:07 pm

    Thanks for the Crisp Linen Dettol Glen 20 spray. The smell was quite pleasant and not artificial smelling. It was very convenient to use on most surfaces and reassuring to see that it kills 99.9% of germs and viruses. My biggest disapointment was that it was not suitable to use on wooden surfaces. All our doors and knobs are wooden so I couldn’t use it on them.
    I don’t know that I would purchase it because I much prefer the dettol wipes because they clean things so well and I find them much more convenient. Thanks for the chance to trial it though

  13. Abs46 24/04/2018 at 3:15 pm

    This product couldn’t have arrived at a better time! Last day of school for the holidays and watching tv that night, Mr 6 says he feels sick! Next minute vomit everywhere! Cleaned it all up and got him to the toilet and MORE! Again cleaned up and sprayed everything with th Dettol Glen 20 spray!!! It took the smell away and left me feeling confident! Luckily no one else in the household picked up the bug and I thank it all to Dettol Glen 20 disinfectant spray! Thank you!!!

  14. Cheryn 24/04/2018 at 2:57 pm

    Thank you for giving me the chance to try out Dettol Glen 20.
    Not only does it smell AMAZING but it keeps the highchair germ free!
    It would be amazing if it could be used on wooden surfaces, then I could use it on everything in my house.
    Will definitely be buying another can when it runs out!

  15. naenae82 24/04/2018 at 1:33 pm

  16. rachlouise 24/04/2018 at 12:31 pm

    I recently got the chance to try out the Dettol Glen 20 spray disinfectant in the scent Fresh Linen. Dettol is a brand that I know and trust and is family favorite in our household. This spray is amazing and the scent is very nice. I used this spray on tv remotes, phones , kitchen benches and cupboards, the toilet seat and hand basin and the list goes on. You name it I sprayed it! It gives me the piece of mind that germs are being eliminated. Especially at this time of year when colds and flus become more common. I will defiantly continue to purchase this! Thank you for the opportunity to trial this and improve our lives with such a great product.

  17. BronnieV 24/04/2018 at 11:27 am

    Thank you so much for this trial – this is a Great product!! We got the Crisp Linen Spray – a gorgeous refreshing smell! So easy to use – to clean hard surfaces spray the surface until wet and then leave for 10 minutes to dry – Fabulous! I took this product to my workplace as several of my colleagues have colds and we share workplaces – I sprayed all the surfaces, I haven’t caught their cold! Will definitely be buying this product!! 🙂

  18. Megan1 24/04/2018 at 9:22 am

    This product arrived in the box . My son returned from a school trip full of flu and with the news that a stomach bug had separated quite a few kids to the van on the return trip. I felt quite relieved to be armed with this and used it in the bathrooms and around the kitchen benches to help prevent cross infection. I like the controlled spray and the smell is pleasant. I think this is good to have in the house. I also use it around the cat bowl in the laundry.. Will definately purchase this product, great to know about and I probably would not have really noticed it without the trial. Thanks for the opportunity

  19. chars01 24/04/2018 at 8:45 am

    This came just in time. My son had a stomach bug so I was able to spray everything! It also helped with odour, I trialled the crisp linen and it wasn’t too overpowering at all. Sfar no one else has caught the bug. Great product that I will definitly purchase.

  20. gillymama 23/04/2018 at 11:44 pm

    Thanks so much for sending our family the Dettol Glen 20 Spray Disinfectant (in Crisp Linen) to try! It arrived on our door step on the day the kids were all chipping in with the chores so I decided the ‘kids’ shared bathroom would be perfect to trial it in first!. I am SO impressed, straight away the toilet was cleaned & surrounding areas freshened & sprayed. I love the ‘spray & leave’ part knowing it’s getting rid of nasty germs. Our little brand new kitten had just arrived so we put him in there (& a litter box) over night for a few days. Using the disinfectant spray around the area gave me peace of mind & the spray smells so great! I sprayed in the kids room to freshen them up & it wasn’t to string or fake smelling which is a big plus! Shoes draws were sprayed & shoes freshened up. The can size is great, will definitely grab some more to have in the bathrooms to use. Thanks so much.

      I meant to add…. I’m very happy with my kids use my this when cleaning too as I know they can mess up & leave pools of messy cleaner. So it’s a real bonus it’s family friendly. Also eliminating stinky shoe smells is great!

  21. Crystalwinter 23/04/2018 at 5:50 pm

    I love this product. Its magic. With mr 3.5 jsut entering a pants wetting phase if gives me oiece of mind even if it is in my head. The scent isnt too harsh for the kitchen lounge and bathroom and its just so easy and convenient. Ive had lots of positive comments on the nice subtle smell in my house. Will definitely be buying

  22. IceKiwi 23/04/2018 at 4:20 pm

    Thanks team for letting our family trial this, the smell is not too overpowering.
    We trialled crisp linen and the smell was pleasant.
    It has been fantastic to spray down the covers for our technology and use on the car keys where we always forget to think about germs lingering. Its been great to use when i got a chest and sinus infection so all surfaces I touched were sprayed….no germs passed onto my tribe. Definitely a good product to have on hand.

  23. KellyMR 23/04/2018 at 4:13 pm

    This Dettol Glen 20 spray is a great product. At first I used it in the kitchen and especially on the rubbish bin, then last week had a sick 4 year old so used it all over the house its very versatile. It definitely eliminates odours well and is great for peace of mind to get rid of nasty germs and keep the rest of the whanau healthy. Will be buying this product again.

  24. Aimeenz8 23/04/2018 at 3:58 pm

    Such a good product, will definatwly become a staple in my house! Easy to use, gives piece of mind that you are eliminating germs quickly and efficiently. Will buy a few to keep in different rooms of the house

  25. MartaA 23/04/2018 at 3:53 pm

    It was great to be able to try the new fragrance of the awesome Dettol Glen 20 Spray Disinfectant: Crisp Linen. It is just so versatile. I used it to spray rooms around the house to keep them smelling fresh and germ free. I also have been spraying the bin and the kitchen sweeper with it too. I really enjoyed the new fragrance and I think I slightly prefer it over the Lavender and Citrus which can be a little too potent. I’m also intending to ‘prep’ the windows for winter by spraying around the edges where mold normally forms from condensation. Thanks so much for allowing me to try this fantastic product, will definitely be re-purchasing it in the future.

  26. Louloud88 23/04/2018 at 3:45 pm

    Excellent product. Will definitely buy another! Works really well on rubbish bin smells, pet beds, sport shoes and car seats. Actually eliminates bad odours not just covering over them.

  27. Keryn247 23/04/2018 at 3:04 pm

    Thanks so much for letting me try this product. I really like it the spray can is so convenient to use. The scent is quite pleasant which its nice not to be completely overpowered by the deodorant smell. This was great to use around the house but particularly when I had to clean up surprises left around the house by our kitten Rocky, its reassuring to know I’ve killed all the germs before the kids run the germs around the rest of the house.

  28. lovejoy900 23/04/2018 at 2:47 pm

    Thank you very much for choosing me. I love this product not only is it sanitizing and getting rid of the germs, I can not get enough of the smell it just makes the room smell soooo nice and clean. Love it thanks again 🙂

  29. nwoodford 23/04/2018 at 2:46 pm

    I received the Dettol crisp linen Glen 20 spray disinfectant to trial. Very handy sized can – not to tall or heavy for one handed used. Downside of smaller sized can may be it runs out faster I guess but it’s definitely a great size to use. Smell is quite nice and definitely not overpowering. Love the ‘spray and walk away’ use! Just need to make sure no one touches the item sprayed for 10 mins or so until dried. Doesn’t leave residue. Not the best for use on our plastic Highchair as I can’t be trusted to remember to wipe it off! Great on rubbish bin and toilet seat. Messy patches on floor. Have tried spraying in mould prone areas on window sills and so far looks to be doing a good job of preventing more mould growing.
    I would recommend this to others and I may buy again depending on price of can. I think my personal preference are the detol disinfectant wipes though as I find them more convenient.

  30. adelyn84 23/04/2018 at 2:45 pm

    Great product that is convenient to use and very handy to have around especially with two little ones at home. Hotspots like the toilet, kitchen counter and bins can be tackled with ease! Thanks for giving me the opportunity to try this out.
