I've seen Zoflora mentioned on here a lot but never really known what it is so, today, when I saw it on the shelf in the supermarket I bought some on a whim (Fresh Linen fragrance I think it is?).

Whats the best way of using it?

Zoflora fans- please try "country garden" it's in a,lime green box and is amazing! As is "bouquet".
Both are available at home bargains for 59p.

I also had some to my steam mop! It makes the room smell amazing! I have the Lily one but have just bought 'hyacinth' smile

I love it. I put a few drops in my steam cleaner to do the floors. I found a couple of days ago that it is fantastic for cleaning windows, mirrors etc. I have always struggled to get my windows smear free. I mixed a little bit with some water in a spray bottle. I used microfibre cloths to wipe on and then a dry one to dry off. My windows are smear free for the first time ever. Normally I spend more time trying to get rid of the smears than cleaning the windows and I have tried all sorts of different cleaning products/methods. smile

Is it really toxic to cats?

I have used it for years and I have cats...

Bloody Nora.

I use it to clean the kitchen and bathroom floors. DM says the nursing homes she worked in also used it to clean the toilets.

Yes, I think I just happened to find one last bottle in the shops. Which means I will have to find another fragrance to be "the one." This is a pitty!

I didn't like Lavender. I will try "bouquet" next. If I like it, I will buy several bottles.

I've been desperately searching for the Warm Cinnamon but can't find it anywhere.

I have discovered that the Pound Shop sell (other fragrances of) Zoflora though.

This thread inspired me. I have wanted to do something to leave a "signature scent" in the homes I clean but I didn't want to just spray crap around. Another cleaner told me that he uses Zoflora on the door frames (? Yeah, weird,I know) to leave a scent that greets the customer when they come home. I figured I'd use it on my dusting cloths. You know how you slightly dampen them to dust? Well, I spritzed mine with a Zoflora solution.

I tried the Lavender scent, first, but didn't really like it. Then I found Warm Cinnamon one and tried that. I love it! I use it on my duster and I also spray the Henry filter and bag with it. And, I put a little in the mop water when I cleaned the kitchen floors. I also sprayed some inside waste baskets and onto toilet seats and flush handles. Both of my customers came home as I was finishing up and they both raved about the smell.

Ooh at warm cinammon.

Yes my gran's vim container was all rust speckled. I wonder if they still make vim - god that cleaned the bath well. Probably caustic soda grin

I had no idea it was harmful for cats, mop the bathroom with it and my 4 cats also follow the mop - I do dilute it a lot for mopping though.

The lavender one is a bit bloody strong. But the others are good.

Re festive smells my mil had clove oil in a burner the otjher day - her house smelled wonderfully christmassy.

I used the warm cinnamon one to wash floors and wipe down kitchen and bathroom surfaces at Christmas time - made my whole house smell very festive.

NorbertDentressangle Wed 06-Mar-13 17:33:30

Blimey Captain. I wish it had that sort of effect on me! My house could do with a good mop.

I bought a small plant spray bottle for 80p from Wilkinsons and put a small amount of water in it with a few drops of Zoflora. Great for using on the table (oil cloth type cover) after we've eaten and all sorts of other quick clean-up jobs.

I just cleaned my floor with it because of this thread. At 8am on my day off. What am I thinking?

Mynewmoniker Tue 05-Mar-13 17:12:24

I put it inside the vacuum bag Melfish.

higgle Tue 05-Mar-13 15:59:01

In the mop bucket for final rise over when dog has had unexpected diarrhoea and the place stinks to high heaven. Warm Cinnamon is best as it replicates a more healthy kitchen odour.

Melfish Mon 04-Mar-13 18:34:34

I hate the smell of bleach so I use Zoflora for those sort of jobs (except cleaning the loo). I like the springtime fragrance. One thing I remember is that you shouldn't mix it with Stardrops, not sure why.
For those of you advocating putting it in the hoover, where should I put the j-cloth soaked in it? I have a henry, should I put it in the vacuum bag?

NaturalBaby Sun 03-Mar-13 21:37:37

No good for my cats who follow me as I mop!
Our house smelt of dettol when we moved in, after potty training 2 boys I think my toilets need a good dose.

Put undiluted on a damp cloth and wipe over kitchen tops, will eliminate even the smelliest of curry smells and leave the kitchen really fresh,have also put a capful in the sink with a drop of boiling water from the kettle, also acts as a great cooking smell cover-upper.

Their website is very good. Has a section on pets, apparently OK so long as they don't lick it or walk on wet Zoflora'd areas

Mynewmoniker Sat 02-Mar-13 19:54:38

I wish there was a scratch n sniff section here hmm

NorbertDentressangle Sat 02-Mar-13 18:33:32

I didn't realise that there was a citrus one.

I went for the Linen Fresh one as the others all seemed a bit too floral.

ooh, just had a look at the website and seems they even do/did a limited edition
Warm Cinnamon one. I'd love to try that one!

Mine's Springtime but I'm inclined to buy more now thanks to this thread
