Unless you live in the arse end of nowhere in a cave surrounded by nothing but the sea then there is a strong possibility that you have heard about Zoflora. Even your Nan has probably heard of it because this stuff has been about for a while. I didn’t discover the wonders of Zoflora until about 2 years ago and since then I haven’t been without a bottle (or 10) of this stuff in my kitchen cupboard.
One thing I’ve noticed is that Zoflora virgins or people who generally don’t get the hype around it haven’t used it for anything more than mopping the floors but trust me guys, the cleaning opportunities for this shit are endless.
01. Diluted in a spray bottle as a surface spray – I reuse spray bottles and just add 1-2 caps of Zoflora then fill up the rest with water.
02. Diluted in a reed diffuser instead of fragrance oil.
03. On a piece of kitchen towel in the bottom of your bins.
04. Diluted in a spray mop as a floor cleaner.
05. 3 caps in the washing machine to give it a good disinfect and refresh.
06. In the toilet to make it smell amazing as well as kill any germs – I pop some in the cistern so the smell fills the room when the toilet is flushed.
07. Wiping door handles and other high traffic areas.
08. 1 cap in a cool, quick wash in the washing machine to clean trainers, converse, vans, etc.
09. Soaked into dryer sheets or baby wipes and popped down the sides of the sofa, inside cushion covers or in clothes drawers – This one it a Mrs Hinch tip! Love it!
10. To disinfect sinks – Fill your sink up with hot water and 1 cap of Zoflora and leave overnight.
11. Half a cap in a vase of flowers will help them last longer as well as make them smell even more amazing.
12. On cotton balls dotted about the house to make your rooms smell nice and fresh, hide them behind photo frames, no one will ever know!
13. To wipe down and sanitise your phone.
14. Wipe down the radiators in the winter and the heat will make everywhere smell unreal.
15. Spray onto doormats to disinfect them.
16. Pour a cap of zoflora down the plug hole, put the plug in and leave overnight. Pour a full kettle of boiled water down it in the morning. Voila! Fresh, clean plug holes.
17. Spray onto the the soles of your shoes to disinfect them.
18. Pour a bit into your toilet brush holder to keep it smelling fresh.
19. To wash your towels – pop a cap full in the washing machine along with your normal washing powder. Towels can get a bit funky from being left damp and this method brings them back to life.
20. To disinfect games console controllers.
21. To freshen wooden furniture – another Mrs Hinch tip, she dilutes it and then works it into her wooden table. I don’t have a sanded table but I do have a sanded welsh dresser which I use this method on and it smells amazing!
22. To disinfect the bottom of your kids’ school bags.
23. To clean mirrors, taps and windows – I use it neat on a cloth and it brings up one hell of a shine as well as disinfecting it at the same time. Winner.
24. To disinfect garden toys.
25. Dilute and spray around the house onto pet bedding to neutrilise any odours.
26. Soak gym clothes in diluted Zoflora to kill any bacteria and get sweat stains out of clothes. (Always check the label of any clothes beforehand, obvs).
27. Soak bath toys to kill any nasties and prevent them from going mouldy.
28. Spray diluted Zoflora onto your bin between changing the bag to make sure it’s disinfected and smelling as nice. Well, as a bin can smell.
29. Pour some down the plug holes overnight.
30. To clean and disinfect your washing machine drawer.
