Zoflora - Concentrated Disinfectant.
I have been buying Zoflora for years after I discovered it in Poundland. To be honest I only really bought it out of curiousity, wondering what this little box could do that other bigger bottles couldn't.
Zoflora comes packaged in a cardboard box which is rather quite small! On the front of the box is the product name - Zoflora and also a picture of whatever scent it may be that you have bought. This Springtime fragrance comes in a package emblazoned with daffodils and is coloured in mainly yellow.
On the back are two orange warning boxes - one telling us that it is Highly Flammable the other telling us that it is Harmful. (Harmful to aquatic organisms)
Inside is a small clear plastic bottle with little ridges and the Zoflora logo on the bottle as well as a label that tells you the scent and some usuage instructions. The bottle holds 120ml of liquid which doesn't seem much compared to some bottles but this stuff does go a long way.
To use as a general disinfectant you need to dilute one capful (10ml) in 400ml of water. This is great in a spray bottle to use on kitchen worktops or any other areas where it may be needed.
I also use it diluted to mop my floors, to do this I just pour a little into the hot water in my mop bucket and simply mop away. Not only does it clean up any spills or dried marks on the floor it also leaves a fantastic scent.
After using it to mop my floors people always ask what air freshner I have used or what candle I am burning... I tell them it's neither, I just mopped my floors!
The scent lasts ages too and probably starts to go about 4-5 hours later, although everywhere does still smell clean and fresh.
It can also be used neat/undiluted in sinks, drains and toilets. I pour a little down the plughole of my kitchen sink and leave it for a few minutes to ensure no nasty whiffs in my kitchen and it works brilliantly.
It can also be used in pet areas but there is a warning not to allow pets back in tha area until the product has completely dried.
My thoughts ~
I use this stuff pretty much everywhere and whenever I empty my kitchen bin I always clean it with a little bit of neat Zoflora on a cloth or kitchen paper, I find this keeps my bin smelling and looking clean and fresh which is a must really!
I have a little spray bottle that I have filled with water and Zoflora and use this around the home when the kids have spilled something, I find that if I do this with Flash my living rooms smells like the kitchen then! So I do find this handy to have.
If anyone has a nasty cold or stomach bug etc, I literally follow them around the house with something to wipe everything they touch haha! I think this is effective for getting rid of any nasty germs and smells great, and it stops the germs from spreading.
Another reason I really like Zoflora is the size of the bottle. Under my kitchen sink is filled with loads of different cleaning products but this doesn't take up any room at all.
I like to try different scents and a while back I purchased the Springtime scented Zoflora, it has a soft floral scent, which I associate with walking through a field in the springtime, it smells like daisies and buttercups, cutgrass, daffodils and tulips and it is a very uplifting smell.
I have only just opened the lid to take a sniff and I can still smell it rather strongly which is a little off putting! But when diluted with water the smell is not as strong, it is just right. I love mopping the floors with zoflora as it does instantly freshen up the room and it lasts pretty well too.
The only bugbear I have with this particular bottle is that the cap broke on the first use! The bottles have a white screw top lid and when I put this one back on the top of the cap popped off, leaving the top completely open! It has never happened with any other bottles so I may have screwed this cap on a bit too tightly!
However it does keep under my sink smelling very fresh!
I buy this is Poundland but it can also be found in supermarkets priced at around £1.50.
