Forgive me, Mumsnet, for I must blaspheme . . . . (Zoflora related)

I am a marketer's dream. After listening to the MN Jury rave about Zoflora, I ordered a bottle of Fresh Linen from Amazon. I opened it in high anticipation of the life changing effect this wonder product would have on my mopped floors.

Oh my good God . . . . . the SMELL!!!!!!!!!!

Even DH, the mildest mannered and least bothered bloke about anything, wandered out of the lounge to find out what the feck was stinking the house out.

Housekeeping Board - I'll get my coat grin

I like the lavender one but I agree that the Fresh Linen is disappointing to say the least.

I don't like the Fresh Linen one either but like Bouquet and twilight garden. Citrus and green apple ones aren't bad either

dementedpixie Tue 01-Nov-16 17:18:07

They sell them in the supermarkets and places like home bargains, pound world, etc so I tend to open them and have a sniff before buying them

I like twilight garden, winter morning is nice too, very festive. Fresh linen is a bit meh

I haven't tried it yet.....

Shall I give it a go?

I too ran straight to the shops to get some after reading everyone's rave reviews on here.
I got winter morning. Smells ok, festive.
But it doesn't feel as clean as bleach?

Bouquet is my favourite at the moment, got the big one from Wilko. Something about the linen one smells like aftershave and the hyacinth one is a bit forceful

dementedpixie Tue 01-Nov-16 17:27:20

I oñly use it in my washing machine anyway. Although I don't use bleach much either

Is it diluted enough? I always dilute it more than they say. Then you just get a trace of fresh scent that's not overpowering. Fresh Linen is synthetic. But Green Valley is lovely and smells like real fresh linen - light apples and lily of the valley.

Dont get the christmas one its vile

atticusclaw2 Tue 01-Nov-16 17:32:50

apple orchard every time

ifancyagreencard Tue 01-Nov-16 18:18:43

notagiraffe - you're spot on. It's a highly synthetic fragrance mixed (in DH's opinion) with the worst Gents' Bog he can recall . . . I think I need to get me to Wilko and check out the others!

Get off the internet.

They vary wildly in their niceness. Some are pure chemical, others are really quite nice. I like Winter morning, but not Springtime. However, even Springtime smells better than the bottom of my bin, so in it goes each week!

After reading the rave reviews in MN I bought two bottles of Zoflora and I was distinctly underwhelmed. I didn't like the smell and when I washed my dogs bedding with it instead of putting in fabric conditioner, it all came out crunchy and chemically smelling. It is horrible.

dementedpixie Wed 02-Nov-16 08:22:58

I use it alongside fabric conditioner so you get the smell and the softness

WhoKnowsWhereTheTimeG0es Wed 02-Nov-16 08:24:23

I've tried a few and they've all been gopping, but it is a useful product. I keep meaning to contact the makers and request an unfragranced version.

Qwerdy1234 Wed 02-Nov-16 08:26:47

I love the orange citrus one. I LOVE it.

Transformed my cleaning habits.

IJustAteTheKidsFoodAgain Wed 02-Nov-16 08:27:26

I like linen. But twighlight garden is a firm favourite in my house. Fancy not liking zoflora angry

dannyglick Wed 02-Nov-16 11:43:53

DH complained about the smell of Zoflora, OP?
LTB.

NickyEds Wed 02-Nov-16 12:26:55

I've just bought some- if it's diluted in water for washing down cupboards etc do I need rubber gloves or is it ok without?

PinkiePiesCupcakes Wed 02-Nov-16 12:30:33

I've currently got Fresh Linen, a cinnamon one I forget the name of and Twilight Garden.

Fresh linen goes in the washing machine to freshen the machine and clothes.
Cinnamon one I use in a spray to spritz duster and cloth as I dust and polish.
Twilight Garden is diluted in a bowl and used on a cloth ion sides and cupboards in the kitchen.

My house smells like, and forgive the old expression, the inside of an whores purse. grin

HemanOrSheRa Wed 02-Nov-16 12:30:50

How very dare you??!! Get off of the interwebs and take your filthy talk with you! Gah!

DubiousCredentials Wed 02-Nov-16 12:35:02

I didn't like fresh linen either. And I have just bought a Christmas one which I don't like either. Twilight Garden is the only one I like.
