As Dr. Phil examines Dr. Sears' Lysol spray bottle, he clarifies that Dr. Sears works as a spokesman for Lysol. "And this is safe for kids to be around?" he asks.

"Well, it's for surfaces," says Dr. Sears.

"I'm not saying you spray your kid with it," he says with a chuckle, "but I'm saying if you spray the surface that the kid then puts their hand on, it's not going to freak them out."

"And most of this stuff works by drying the bacteria out, which is nice because that doesn't lead to resistance like antibiotics do," adds Dr. Sears.

"All right, there's another new thing that I'm holding here in my hand," says Dr. Phil, waving a white oblong wand of sorts, called a Cleanse Light. "This is a U.V. wand, and this is something that is " it's a light, actually " that is anti-bacterial." He explains that waving the object across a surface such as a keyboard, telephone or doorknob supposedly kills 99 percent of bacteria. If you turn it toward you face, it automatically shuts off. The Cleanse Light retails for $59.95 and is available at

Every member of Dr. Phil's in-studio audience receives a Cleanse Light and some Lysol spray.
