I would imagine most of us have one of those cupboards in the kitchen or utility room that is totally stuffed full with cleaning products that we have bought, used once or twice and then they have somehow been forgotten about. I recently went through my such cupboard and was flabbergasted at some of the things I found – a bottle of Jif from when it was actually called Jif, six different and unused anti-bac sprays (bought just in case when I was at the supermarket!), even a can of Brasso, although I cannot remember ever owning a single brass item! I seemed to have a product for every single eventuality; floor cleaner, worktop cleaner, bin freshener, fabric deodoriser, drain cleaner – you name it, I had it! But then, I also had one product, in one tiny bottle, that can do all of those things!
I always used to think of Zoflora as something that my grandma would buy. Without fail, her kitchen always had the clean, floral scent of Zoflora and it’s a something that I have always bought too – just because my grandma and my mum used to! But Zoflora is now so much more than floral and old fashioned! The current range of scents is young, fresh and vibrant, and we have been fortunate enough to have been sent a few to use at home. The range is massive, but the ones we wanted to try out were:
- Coconut and Lime
- Midnight Blooms
- Frosted Peppermint
- Mandarin and Lime
- Coastal Breeze Fresh Home Odour Eliminator
They all smell fantastic, but my personal favourites are the Coconut and Lime (reminds me of a tropical cocktail!) and Frosted Peppermint (because it is wintery, Christmassy and fresh). As long as you have a bucket, water and a spray bottle, Zoflora is pretty much the main cleaning product you will ever need in your house! We have been using it for:
Like lots of sinks, ours can have a tendency to look a bit grubby from time to time, and also not necessarily smell the freshest. I fill my sink with warm water, add a cap full of Zoflora and leave it alone for ten or fifteen minutes. Not only does in fragrance the whole kitchen, it leaves my sink looking and smelling a million times better. After I take the plug out and let it drain away, I pour half a cap of neat Zoflora down the plughole to really freshen up the pipes and the difference in makes is massive!
A small amount of Zoflora with water in a spray bottle (I got mine from the Pound Shop!) is all that you need to keep your inside kitchen bin and the outside wheely bin smelling fresh and clean. We give the inside of the kitchen bin, and especially the lid, a light spray between bag changes and it keeps everything smelling fresh and clean. We do the same with the outside wheely bin, and just give it a quick spray every couple of days to keep odours at bay.
You can also use your spray bottle of Zoflora to refresh fabrics when washing isn’t convenient. We use it to freshen up curtains because they won’t fit in our washing machine, as well as giving outdoor coats a quick spray to save a trip to the drycleaners. I have also used it on the blinds and seat cushions in the kitchen as they are prone to absorbing cooking smells.
Zoflora in a spray bottle also works brilliantly well for cleaning worktops in the kitchen and utility rooms! Its antibacterial properties make it ideal for ensuring that worktops and surfaces are hygienically clean and ready to be used.
We regularly use Zoflora in our bathroom too, and it’s perfect diluted either in a spray bottle or a bucket for keeping sinks, taps, baths and showers clean, fresh and sparkling.
Of course, it goes without saying that Zoflora is a fantastic floor cleaner. Just a capful in a bucket of warm water is all you need to not only clean and disinfect the solid floors in your house, but also leave the room with a beautiful, fresh smell.
We love using Zoflora and the different scents now available are excellent, they leave the house smelling fresh and clean and we are safe in the knowledge that everything is disinfected.
Zoflora is available from supermarkets and discount stores, in 120ml, 250ml and 500ml bottles, priced £1 – £5.99. For more information, visit www.zoflora.co.uk.
