Where to use Zoflora when you hate cleaning

Lots of cleaning bottles lined up next to one another. There is a pink bottle, a yellow bottle, an orange bottle, a green bottle, a purple bottle and a green bottle.

I’m not a cleaning fan or a cleaning expert. But Zoflora smells nice, it’s cheap and I’ve discovered that you can use it in loads of different ways. For those that don’t like cleaning and are unsure about where to use Zoflora, I’ve got you covered. Here’s how I’ve incorporated it into our household.

What is Zoflora?

Zoflora is a concentrated disinfectant (like Dettol) that kills bacteria. But it comes in different scents. This means you can decide if you want your disinfectant to smell like a fruit, a flower, or if you’d prefer a fresher scent. 

We all like choice, which is why I think people love Zoflora. Some people even collect different scents, or change their Zoflora with the seasons. 

Where can I use it?

1) To clean inside the washing machine

Ok, full disclosure, before I got pregnant, it had never occurred to me to clean inside the washing machine. I don’t know why. Maybe I was busy doing other things, or maybe I’m just gross. But when I was washing my little boy’s clothes, ahead of his arrival, I couldn’t bear the thought of them going through a washing machine that had been used day in, day out, for goodness knows how long. So I cleaned the inside of the machine using Zoflora. I put a cap in the drum and two caps in the dispenser drawer, before putting on a hot wash. 

The result? Oh. My. Goodness. The machine smelt so good at the end of the wash and this is something I’ve done regularly since. Call me boring, but I just love the idea of fresh smelling disinfectant running through my washing machine periodically.

2) In the sink

The sink is a place that you use to clean your pots and pans, so you want the area to be germ free. I like to put a few caps of Zoflora into my sink, I then fill it with hot water and leave it for an hour. I get rid of the water before filling the sink up again, adding more Zoflora and using the mixture to clean the taps.

The area usually comes up gleaning and smelling fresh. 

3) On the kitchen floor

I use Zoflora as a kitchen floor disinfectant, mainly because I like the smell. I don’t think it’s safe to use it on every floor surface though, so check before using it at home. 

4) In the toilet brush holder

I put some Zoflora in the toilet brush holder, to ensure the brush remains clean and smelling good. 

5) As a spray

I’ve previously written about my Zoflora trigger spray, which I use around the house in 9 different ways. I have made my own, but you can buy personalised Zoflora spray bottles if you fancy adding a bit of personality to your cleaning cupboard.

6) In iron

I’m no ironing expert, but I do find that adding a couple of drops of Zoflora to the water in my iron makes my clothes smell fresh. If you’re going to do this, then I’d recommend using a cool scent.

Is it worth it?

Until I win a house raffle and I can afford to hire somebody to do the housework, it looks like I’ll be stuck with Zoflora. I always have it in the house and I think it’s a very versatile product. It’s also affordable and really easy to use. I like that I can pick which scent I buy too. My favourite is Fresh Linen. What’s your go-to Zoflora scent?
