Drinking lysol is definitely dangerous as it contains certain chemicals not suitable for our body. Friend did the right thing by giving her salt water to induce vomiting. Also it is good sign that she vomitted maximum out and no problem after 12 hours. But lay people should not attempt to keep the victim away from medical help. After first aid, victim should have been presented in front of a medical professional. Even now, that option is safe. Nutralising elements need to be given and the victim should be under careful observationn for atleast 24 hours. Do the needful. Good luck.
