When I think of a freshly cleaned room/house, I think of pine disinfectant. A big part of this is due to my mam, as she was a cleaner when I was young and I can remember her scrubbing the pads from the buffers in our bath and them hanging to dry on the bath taps.
Whilst I love the smell of pine disinfectant I realise that this is not everyone's ideal fragrance in their home. None more-so than Mr Boo, he can tell when I have been cleaning spree as the whole house is consumed by the smell.
So when Zoflora asked if I'd like to try out one of their disinfectants from the range I knew that Mr Boo would be happy that I might at long last put down the pine disinfectant and switch to a more appealing fragrance.
There are currently 12 fragrances to chose from:
- Bluebell Woods Limited Edition
- Cherry Blossom
- Citrus Fresh
- Linen Fresh
With two new editions making their way to a store near you soon:
I opted for Citrus Fresh, after all people are always talking about the cleaning powers of lemons.
How & Where to use:
How we got on:
When first reading the directions on the box, '1 capful (10ml) will make 400ml'. I must admit that I thought it would soon lose it's fragrance, become watered down if you excuse the pun. I hold my hands up and admit that I was wrong, if anything it makes the fragrance more refreshing.
I preferred to use the solution in a spray bottle and use as required. I decided to put it to the ultimate test and used it clean out the kitchen bin. A few sprays and a little scrubbing and the bin was clean and smelling fresh. Now don't get me wrong most cleaning solutions will do this, however this is where Zoflora comes into its own. The fresh fragrance continued all day and a little puff of citrus fresh was released upon opening the bin for days after.
