Computers & Lysol

I don't think using lysol in one is a good idea! I would run it for a
while and see if that dries it out. I've found that Amway's Pursue spray is
great for getting rid of odors, just spray it in the area not in the
machine. Perhaps you should get a portable dehumidifier and run it in
there to keep down the moisture. It can't be good for the computer either.
