Hey all! Adulting means cleaning after yourself, and luckily I am one that loves to clean. My holy product is Zoflora. For anyone that hasn’t heard of this, Zoflora is a liquid disinfectant, killing 99.9% of bacteria and removing smells at the source – with an amazing variety of scents. The beauty is that you can do so much with it – including putting Zoflora in a reed diffuser – here’s how!
1) To Clean Radiators
Just like many products, you do have to be aware of cleaning products and heat. Never attempt to apply Zoflora to a hot radiator! Use a dry cloth to wipe the Zoflora across the radiator. As soon as you put the heating on, the scent will spread across your room. It also gets rid of the nasty dust buildup at the bottom of radiators, which is so fiddly to clean.

2) As a toilet disinfectant
I am a sucker for clean scents in the bathroom, and this is the perfect way to keep your toilet free of bacteria and smelling great. Just pop a capful in the loo at the end of the night or into the cistern, and it will be in perfect condition come morning. The easiest way to keep your home clean!

3) Cleaning The Sink
A quick and easy hack is to clean your sinks overnight. Just fill the sink with boiling water and a capful of Zoflora before bed, adding your dishcloths to this. By the morning everything will be disinfected and ready to use. If you add boiling hot water, then you will have lovely scented steam fill your kitchen. The best way to get rid of food odours!
4) Zoflora In a Reed Diffuser
Ran out of diffuser oil? Well, Zoflora can do the trick. Just add this to the empty diffuser bottle, and let the scents fill your room. Admittedly, the reeds do need rotating more than usual – but this is a quick and easy way to resolve an empty diffuser. Zoflora in a reed diffuser is definitely the way forward in my house! I found, however, issues when diluting the Zoflora. After a couple of weeks, it started discolouring into a murky yellow colour. If you choose to dilute, add less water than you think, but I recommend adding it neat. An affordable way of scenting your home!
5) Mopping The Floor
Zoflora can also be diluted, so add half a capful of this to boiling hot water and you have the perfect solution to clean the floor. What is so great about using Zoflora is that it does not smell clinical or excessively clean, but instead smelling like you have sprayed an air freshener everywhere.
6) Wiping Down Surfaces
Another hack is to add diluted Zoflora to surfaces in a spray bottle. It is just as effective as standard alternatives (and works out cheaper too). Buy some “Mrs Hinch inspired” spray bottles and spray everything! Create a daily rota of things you need to clean (door handles, windows, surfaces, appliances) and alternate every day. The best way to keep your home smelling fresh.
7) Keeping the Bin Smelling Fresh
As a student, it is very easy to forget to take the bin out, leaving an awful stench in your kitchen. A solution to this is to add a Zoflora coated kitchen towel into the bottom of your bin to prevent stenches. Use Zoflora to clean out the bin every time you empty it too to keep everything as fresh as possible.
8) Smelly Shoes
This is easily caused and is such a pain to get rid of the smell. Simply add a tissue soaked with Zoflora into the shoe, pressing it down and leave overnight. By the morning your shoes should be smelling fresh! No need for expensive sprays.
9) Car Air Vents
Again, another easy way to keep things fresh, just mix the Zoflora with water, wipe onto the vents with a cloth, and wait for the smell to come through. Do not add too much, however, as liquids can do damage to your car.
10) Into the Washing Machine
I personally love this hack. Not only will this ensure that your clothes are free of bacteria, but will also have them smelling lovely – just add 1 capful to the fabric softener compartment on a hot cycle! I love this especially for throws and for disinfecting any cleaning clothes and reusable wipes.
And there we have it! Zoflora is available in supermarkets and Pound stores in the cleaning section and has various scents to choose from.
