35 Uses For Zoflora (& Why You NEED To Add It To Your Cleaning Kit)

35 Uses For Zoflora: The Ultimate Guide For Cleaning Your Home


Editor's Note: This post was originally posted in September 2018 and has been completely revamped and updated for accuracy and comprehensiveness in September 2019.

Have you heard of Zoflora? Even though it's been around for almost a century, Zoflora has suddenly become the latest must-have cleaning product, but what exactly is it?

What is Zoflora? 

Zoflora
Why has the cleaning world gone crazy for it?

 Zoflora is a versatile concentrated disinfectant that you can use all over the house. It claims to kill 99.9% of bacteria and viruses and eliminate foul odours with a freshening power that will last all day.  

How to use Zoflora

You can use Zoflora for just about every cleaning job on your list. There's a variety of cleaning products you can make using Zoflora, including:

  • Cloth and bucket - add 4 capfuls to 1.5 litres of water in a bucket. 
  • Mop and bucket - add 4 capfuls to 1.5 litres of water in a bucket. 
  • Spray bottle - add 1.5 capfuls to a spray bottle and top up with water.  
  • Undiluted - use 1 capful to clean drains and toilets. 

Cleaning vs. disinfecting 

zoflora
What makes this cleaning product any different? 

There's a pretty big difference between cleaning and disinfecting that you need to know! 

Cleaning products will cut through grease, remove surface grime and leave a clean smell - but they won't kill bacteria.

Zoflora, which is a disinfectant, can't cut through grease but will remove visible dirt and kill 99.9% of bacteria on surfaces and sponges. It'll kill the bacteria that cause odour, removing smells at the source instead of masking them.

For really dirty jobs, start with a cleaning spray to cut through grime. Finish off with a wipe of diluted Zoflora.

Uses for Zoflora

1. Welcome mat

welcome mat
Spritz before guests arrive.

Worried your house might smell?  Give guests a good first impression as they enter your hallway by spritzing a little Zoflora right by the door. Spray diluted solution onto the mat and leave to dry. 

TOP TIP: Make a sensory experience in your house by using a different Zoflora scent for cleaning in each room. 

2. Smelly shoes

Smelly shoes
Just leave overnight. 

Don't let smelly shoes in the hallway stink out the whole house! Add a few drops of Zoflora to a piece of kitchen roll. Place inside smelly shoes and press down. Leave to dry overnight and your shoes will smell great. 

TOP TIP: Take the used kitchen paper and sprinkle on a little more Zoflora. Discard inside your bins to freshen them up too! 

3. Fridge freezer

Stop the spread of bacteria in your fridge. 

To kill bacteria and get rid of those horrific fridge odours, use a diluted solution of Zoflora and wipe down your fridge freezer inside and out. Rinse shelves with clean water before putting food back in the fridge.

4. Countertops

Kitchens are a hotbed for bacteria. Spray a diluted solution of Zoflora onto surfaces and wipe with a cloth. Just don't use it on chopping boards - Zoflora perfumes will taint food. 

5. Kitchen bin

kitchen bin
Clean inside and out.

Your bin doesn't have to smell like rubbish. Using a cloth and bucket full of diluted Zoflora, wipe waste and recycling bins inside and out. Don't forget the lid! Keep your bin smelling fresh every day by spraying a diluted solution of Zoflora onto the contents. 

6. Cupboard doors

Use a spray bottle filled with diluted Zoflora to wipe down cupboards, inside and out - don't forget the handles!

7. Tap

Just think how much bacteria is lurking on your tap! Wipe with a diluted solution of Zoflora. 

8. Sink

clean sponges
Sponges are full of bacteria.

Keep your sink ready for food prep by disinfecting it regularly.

Pop the plug in and add 1 capful of Zoflora, then fill the sink with hot water. Leave overnight and wake up to a fragrant home. 

TOP TIP: While you're at it, add sponges and cloths to the water to disinfect them too.

9. Coffee table

Let's not forget the living room! Carefully wipe coffee stains off your tables with some diluted Zoflora and a cloth. Don't use on polished wood.

10. Remote control

remote control
Disinfect all your gadgets.

Spray a small amount of diluted Zoflora onto a piece of kitchen roll or a cloth. Carefully wipe the remote, taking care to get the gaps between the buttons. 

TOP TIP: You can use this same technique to clean phones and keyboards. Just make sure that the cloth isn't dripping wet. Don't use on screens or touchpads. 

11. Fake flowers

We love this clever hack. Bring fake flowers to life by spraying them with a diluted solution of Zoflora. The Bouquet scent would work perfectly for this! 

12. Shelves

shelves
Trap dust with a microfibre cloth.

The dust on your shelves isn't doing your health any good. Dust them with a diluted solution of Zoflora, just be sure not to use on polished wood. 

13. Nappy bins

Have you got kids? You can even use Zoflora in the nursery! Just like normal bins, nappy bins need cleaning too. Wipe down a nappy bin with diluted Zoflora and a cloth to disinfect it.

14. Mattress

mattress
Get your mattress smelling fresh.

We all know accidents happen. Spray diluted Zoflora onto the mattress and then leave to dry.

Spray diluted Zoflora onto the mat and wipe with a cloth. 

17. Bath and shower

It's covered in bacteria! 

Damp places are full of bacteria. Spray diluted Zoflora solution and wipe down with a cloth. Remove the showerhead and soak in a bucket of diluted Zoflora. 

18. Toilet brush

Just think how many germs are on your toilet brush...leave it in a bucket of diluted Zoflora for a few hours to completely disinfect it and leave it smelling fresh.

19. Bathroom surfaces

You can use Zoflora on bathroom surfaces too! Spray diluted solution and wipe down with a cloth.

20. Toilet

It's so easy! 

Make your bathroom smell amazing with this easy cleaning trick.

Pour undiluted Zoflora into the toilet bowl and use the toilet brush to spread it around the bowl. 

21. Bathroom sink

Pour a capful of undiluted Zoflora down the plug hole. Spray a diluted solution around the sink and wipe with a cloth. Don't forget the taps!

22. In the cistern 

Every now and then, add a capful of Zoflora to the cistern of your toilet - the smell will come through with every flush! 

23. Patio

patio
Clean up your patio with Zoflora.

We bet you hadn't thought of this! You can even clean outside with Zoflora. Make up a bucket of diluted Zoflora then pour it over the patio and scrub with a broom. Leave to dry before allowing pets and children on the area or rinse with clean water. 

24. Drain

Pour 1 capful of Zoflora down smelly drains. 

25. Outdoor furniture and play equipment

For carefree outdoor dining and play, wipe down with diluted Zoflora and a cloth. 

26. Wheelie bins

Gagging every time you take the bins out? It doesn't have to be that bad!

Make up a bucket of diluted Zoflora and pour into the bin, making sure all the sides get covered. Wipe inside with a long-handled mop, then wipe the outside, lid and handles with a cloth soaked in diluted Zoflora. Pour any remaining liquid down the drain. 

27. Garden tools

Wipe down garden tools with diluted Zoflora to remove harmful bacteria. 

28. Air vents

car air vents
No need for an air freshener here!

Ever thought of using Zoflora in your vehicles? Clean air vents with diluted Zoflora. Every time air blows through them, so will a gorgeous waft of your favourite Zoflora scent. 

29. Car interiors

Does your car stink? Spray diluted Zoflora onto car interiors and wipe with a cloth.

30. Air fresheners

Refresh a disposable air freshener by leaving in a capful of Zoflora overnight.

31. Pet toys 

Dog
It's great for getting rid of dog odours! 

Pet toys have seen it all! They've been in your pet's mouth, dragged around the house and probably outside too. You should give them a clean every once in a while. 

Soak plastic toys in a bucket of diluted Zoflora. Rinse and leave to dry before giving to your pet. Avoid completely soaking toys with small holes that are likely to fill with water as they are difficult to clean and dry fully. For these toys, you should wipe the surface with diluted Zoflora. 

32. Carriers, crates, cages, and baskets

It's a good idea to clean their carries and baskets from time to time, especially if they've had an accident inside it. Wipe down with diluted Zoflora and a cloth. 

33. Litter tray

Litter trays can get really smelly. Kill odours at the source by disinfecting them. Empty the litter tray, then wipe clean with diluted Zoflora and kitchen roll or a cloth. Leave to dry before letting pets use it. 

34. Dog blankets

Dog blankets are the worst culprit for harbouring pet smells. Place in the washing machine and add 2 capfuls of Zoflora to the drum, then wash on a regular cycle. 

35. Washing machine

washing machine
You can even use it in the laundry!

Clean your washing machine by wiping down the outside with a cloth and diluted Zoflora. Clean the inside of the machine by pouring 1 capful into the machine and running a hot cycle. 

TOP TIP: Wipe down the inside of suitcases with a cloth dampened with a diluted solution of Zoflora. Leave to dry and then pack your case as normal. Your clothes will smell amazing when you arrive at your travel destination!

    Zoflora reminds me of my grandparents. The smell was overpowering!! I have bought it myself since, but there are so many choices of fragrances. I've never found one I really like, and once the bottle has been opened, it must be finished before I can think about buying another. I would like something light and fresh. Also, how much can you dilute Zoflora until it is no longer effective? Thank you Lynn (Powell)

    1. Author Joanne A on October 3, 2018 at 10:28 am

      Hi Lynn. Our favorites are Linen Fresh and Twilight Garden. Have you tried these yet? I'd say the max dilution is about 1 capful for every 400ml of water for it to still be effective.

    I love Zoflora, the smells are beautiful. I use it in the kitchen, to mop floors, units and the bin. I put some with water in a spray bottle and freshen mattresses and carpets. The Christmas scents are part of my Christmas routine, to make the house smell ready for Christmas when guests visit.

      Hi Tasha. We'd use warm water, but it's completely up to you. We don't know how Zoflora has stayed under the radar for so long either!

    2. Author Shirley Dootson on March 26, 2019 at 6:59 am

      I make a solution up ready. I did not know that you should use warm water. Dies this mean that you should make the solution as you go? Maybe that’s why I’m not smelling it as strong as other people.

    3. Author Joanne A on March 26, 2019 at 10:13 am

      There's no right or wrong way, Shirley! It's just down to personal preference. You'd be perfectly fine to use a pre-made solution that has gone cold.

    4. Author Shirley Dootson on March 29, 2019 at 8:08 am

      Thanks fir your reply. I think I’ve realised why I’m not smelling it very strongly. I only have the small bottles and I put in 1 capful and my trigger spray holds about 300ml of water. Could this be why? Do I need to add more than 1 capful to this amount of water?

    5. Author Joanne A on April 1, 2019 at 11:57 am

      Hi Shirley! That could be the reason. On the Zoflora website, they recommend 1.5 capfuls for a standard trigger bottle. I suppose it'll never smell as strongly as it does straight out of the bottle!

    6. Author Shirey Dootson on April 1, 2019 at 2:59 pm

      Hi Joanne, Sorry it’s me again. I wash my floors with karcher steam mop. Can I add zoflora in the water tank ?

    7. Author Joanne A on April 1, 2019 at 3:11 pm

      That's what I'm here for! Zoflora shouldn't be used in Steam Mops as it can cause them to break and it's also flammable. Hope that helps.

    I'm in my 70s and I've always used Zoflora just as my Mum did. I also dilute it in a spray bottle just as in the tips, for round the taps and spraying my shower curtain every day. I would like to know though, - one of the tips is to put it in the fabric conditioner part of the washing machine for bedding and towels, so I assume that's instead of fabric conditioner? Not as well as? Could you tell me please. I usually use the Bouquet one as I like it best but having seen all the variations I've not seen half of them where I shop. Must try and get some others. Yes I use it all around the house. It's a good old fashioned staple.

    1. Author Joanne A on January 2, 2019 at 9:27 am

      Hi there, Carol! It's funny to hear that some people have been using it for so long, whilst most of us are still discovering it! Personally, I have used it in the fabric conditioner drawer when washing towels and bedding. You don't need to use fabric softener when you wash towels anyway, and the Zoflora will help to disinfect them.

    2. Author Thea on July 2, 2019 at 5:27 pm

      Hi Joanne If you did want to use fabric softener can you use both together, please? Perhaps on other washing (not just bedding and towels)?

    3. Author Joanne A on July 3, 2019 at 9:17 am

      Hi Thea! I would not recommend using both together. Mixing chemicals, and cleaning products in general, can be very dangerous.

    1. Author Joanne A on January 3, 2019 at 2:07 pm

      Hi Kaylee! Zoflora is flammable so it would be risky using it in a tumble dryer, even if it was diluted and washed out afterward. You could try cleaning the filters on your tumble dryer and using scented dryer sheets to remove some of the smell?

    5. Author Joanne A on January 14, 2019 at 4:35 pm

      Personally, I pop a capful of Zoflora into the conditioner drawer of my washing machine when washing my towels so that bacteria will be killed. You could use it for clothes, but you might be best just using fabric softener to achieve a nice smell. There's a bit of a debate about whether or not it's a good idea to put Zoflora into your washing machine as it's flammable when undiluted and also shouldn't be mixed with any other cleaning product.

      We've heard this tip! Be careful about using Zoflora in places that might heat up. It's highly flammable.

    Never used it before just purchased a bottle and put some in the kitchen sink and wiped down the cupboard doors absolutely love it addicted already the smell is amazing lovely and fresh can’t wait to clean the whole house with it

    1. Author Joanne A on April 3, 2019 at 12:53 pm

      We're so glad you love it too! My absolute favourite use is filling the sink up with hot water and a capful of Zoflora. It's the best way to fill your home with the fragrance.

    I put some in a spray bottle & diluted it with water as per instructions. Only been in there for about 2 weeks but has turned the bottle & sprayer stick yellow....?! Is this normal as worried if it’s done that what it could do to things I’m spraying it on!

    1. Author Joanne A on April 8, 2019 at 9:03 am

      Hi Clare! I've not heard of that happen before. It could be to do with the type of plastic the bottle is made from. I would conduct a patch test every time you use Zoflora on a new surface, but I wouldn't worry too much about it turning your belongings yellow. When you spray it, the liquid evaporates quickly. In the bottle, it is just standing.

    Wondering which nicest for around house

    1. Author Joanne A on May 2, 2019 at 3:37 pm

      Hi Bridget! It all depends on your personal preference. I'd really recommend Country Garden. It smells like a fresh bouquet of flowers, mixed with fresh air. Linen Fresh is also really popular.

    Can I use diluted Zuflora on soft furnishings such as children’s teddies, play mats, rugs and made beds?

    1. Author Joanne A on May 13, 2019 at 12:15 pm

      Hi Charlotte! It should be fine to use in a diluted spray bottle. Ensure that it has dried fully before letting children or pets come into contact with the surface.

    Hi there. I'd like to know if there are any particular advantages to using dettol all in one disinfectant spray as compared to Zoflora correctly mixed in a spray bottle, set to finest mist? Moneywise it would appear to be a far cheaper option to use the Zoflora but are there areas Dettol can be used that Zoflora can't? If not I'll stick to Zoflora for all I can but would consider adding the dettol all in one disinfectant spray to my list if it has any specific advantages over Zoflora....other than not having to have a mist bottle and the time to fill it with water and shove the correct measure of Zoflora in for the chores ahead?

    1. Author Joanne A on June 10, 2019 at 12:11 pm

      Hi there! The main difference would be the smell. Zoflora can taint surfaces with its powerful scents, so it's not a good idea to use it in areas where food is prepared. Dettol all-in-one is fairly odourless and will not taint surfaces. It's perfect for using on areas like high chair trays, or anywhere that food is prepared. It's pretty expensive to use this all over the home for disinfecting, so Zoflora makes for a great partnership for tackling your whole home.

    I avoid using it to clean as it says on the back it kills all marine life 😭😭😭

    1. Author Joanne A on July 11, 2019 at 11:01 am

      Oh no! Have you found any good alternative products that are safe for marine life? We'd love to hear from you.

    2. Author Kathryn Mary Anne Cheeswright on September 3, 2019 at 11:18 am

      Am I correct in thinking that Nikki is referring to the marine life in the oceans? Is Zoflora environmentally friendly? All the diluted liquid will most likely end up in the sea after it has been used? Now it has become so popular, is this something that will increase environmental damage?

    3. Author Joanne A on September 3, 2019 at 12:08 pm

      Hi Kathryn! I think you'd be best contacting Zoflora directly to get the most accurate answers to these questions. When we look at cleaning products in general, liquids poured down our drains either to a sewer or a septic tank. This water is treated at a sewage treatment plant and then this clean water is put back into rivers and seas.

    If i wipe down areas of my house with diluted Zoflora from a spray bottle, do I then need to rinse after with water?

    1. Author Joanne A on August 12, 2019 at 10:46 am

      Hi Kelly! You don't need to rinse it after. Just consider that it is flammable and can taint surfaces, so don't use it on food prep surfaces/water bottles.

    Can I use zoflora to clean my leather couch?

    1. Author Joanne A on August 14, 2019 at 3:09 pm

      Hi Polly! I tend to only ever spritz fabrics with a water and Zoflora solution. Leather can be very delicate, so I'm not sure I'd risk using it to deep clean the fabric. You can purchase speciality leather cleaners for this.

    Can you use in washing machine to do bed linen? Just want to freshen up when the hot weather starts again. Also should I put in the washing detergent dispenser or fabric conditioner one? Thanks

    1. Author Joanne A on September 11, 2019 at 12:21 pm

      Hi Gloria! There's a bit of debate around using it for washing fabrics. I have seen some people say that they've had allergic reactions to the fabrics post-wash. As well as this, using it in your washing machine with other detergents would mean that you are mixing chemicals, which is a big no-no! I think I would avoid using it for this purpose. A good alternative would be Dettol's Landry Cleanser. This is specifically made for your laundry and kills 99.9% of bacteria. Always follow the manufacturer's instructions.

    I have used Zoflora for years. Boquet. White Linen, and my most favourite is Night Garden. Before I go to bed I put some in the kitchen sink bowl and pour a kettle of boiling water on to it. The next morning the whole house smells beautiful. Would never be without it. Especially in a home with 3 boys, their bathroom and toilet always smells gorgeous.

    Can you use it on children’s toys?

    1. Author Joanne A on October 21, 2019 at 12:05 pm

      Hi Miranda! Zoflora is highly flammable so I would advise against using it on any toy that has an electronic component. If the toys are likely to go in the child's mouth, Zoflora is not suitable as it taints the surface with the fragrance.
