Zoflora has quickly become a staple in households worldwide, allowing us to clean our homes and enjoy fresh scents like never before!
But sometimes, we find ourselves wondering, just what can I use Zoflora for? But fear not, Clean and Tidy Living are here to put all your Zoflora related queries to bed! Keep reading to have all your questions answered. But first, let’s start with the big one:
What can you use Zoflora for in your home?
Zoflora has endless uses! It can be used to clean and disinfect your bathroom, kitchen surfaces, bins, sinks, drains, refrigerator and freezer, shoes, mats, remotes, shelves, mattresses, and outdoor furniture and equipment!
Essentially, anywhere that you want to disinfect, you can use Zoflora either undiluted or mixed with water to create a spray or pop some in a bucket or bowl.
There are some surfaces that Zoflora should not be used on, and these are usually listed on the product’s label. With so many fantastic scents to choose from, why not add Zoflora to your shopping list today?
Can I put Zoflora in the washing machine?
Yes, you can put Zoflora in the washing machine. Not only can it be used as an excellent washing machine cleaner (more on this later!), but you can use Zoflora in your washing machine to clean your clothes too!
It’s easy to do, and since Zoflora is a disinfectant, it works to eliminate all odors, bacteria, and germs, leaving you with fresh and clean clothes that will smell divine. To do this, simply add a cap of your favorite Zoflora to the detergent drawer of your washing machine.
Place it where you would usually place the fabric softener, and run your machine on the usual cycle you use to clean your clothes. In these instances, we would avoid using any other washing detergents, just in case they don’t mix well with the Zoflora and cause irritation!
Be mindful not to use too much Zoflora, as in undiluted quantities; it can be harmful to children and animals.
Can I put Zoflora in my washing machine to clean it?
Yes, you can put Zoflora in your washing machine to clean it! The method is easy to do, and all you need is a cloth, some water, and your favorite scent of Zoflora!
Begin by soaking a cloth in a solution of Zoflora and warm water. Start with 400ml of water and one capful of your favorite scent of Zoflora. Once the cloth has been thoroughly soaked, drain out any excess water and wipe down your washing machines’ exterior. It will leave your machine sparkling clean and smelling fresh!
For those with odors coming from their washing machine (we have all been there!), you can add two capfuls of Zoflora to the empty drum of your machine and put the machine on a hot cycle. Alternatively, you can add the Zoflora to the detergent drawer of your machine and run the cycle that way; the choice is yours!
Most users opt for adding the Zoflora directly to the drum, where it will get into all the nooks and crevices to remove any dirt or mildew that could be causing a damp and musty smell in your dryer!
When adding Zoflora to your washing machine, do not add any other chemicals to it, such as bleach, as they can react with one another and produce harmful airborne chemicals, the last thing you want in your home! Read the label carefully before use, and soon enough, you will have a fresh smelling washing machine!
Can you mix Zoflora with white vinegar?
While many homemade cleaning recipes will mix Zoflora with white vinegar to create powerful cleaning concoctions, we would avoid it. Generally speaking, you should never mix chemicals at home. You run the risk of the chemicals combining and creating an odor that can range from an unpleasant smell to toxic and dangerous!
In these instances, it’s best left to the professionals in laboratories to create these products rather than yourself. Zoflora’s website also recommends that you not mix Zoflora with other products to avoid any adverse reactions.
While there are plenty of hacks online that would encourage you to mix Zoflora and white vinegar, we believe it is best to air on the side of caution; it’s better to be safe than sorry, after all!
Many people mix it when cleaning their drains for those who want to mix Zoflora with white vinegar. First, they pour white vinegar down their drains, usually bathroom or kitchen, and leave the mixture to oxidize. Often you will see some fizzing too. They follow the mixture with a cupful of Zoflora to deliver a fresh scent of their choice.
Please read the label of your Zoflora and white vinegar bottle carefully if you intend to use this method, and be sure to report any adverse side effects or odors immediately. As with any cleaning products, ensure there is good ventilation in the room to avoid headaches or other side effects.
Can you put Zoflora in your iron?
No, Zoflora should not be put into your iron. Their website states that Zoflora should not come into contact with any electrical appliances such as irons, electrical diffusers, vacuum cleaners, and steam cleaners.
Contact with these appliances can cause them to break or catch fire, posing a danger to your home, your life, and others around you! Undiluted Zoflora is flammable, and therefore should not be exposed to heat or any open flames.
Many people add a drop of Zoflora to the water in their iron when ironing clothes and argue that it is perfectly safe to do so. However, extreme caution would be needed to ensure that the Zoflora does not contact any electrical components of the iron. Others opt for spraying diluted Zoflora over the clothes while they are ironing.
Again, while following safety measures, this is possible, but you need to remember that water and heat do not mix. In these cases, too much Zoflora on the clothes and too hot an iron is a recipe for disaster! For us, it’s a risk we aren’t prepared to take.
