REVIEW: Zoflora

Zoflora Concentrated Disinfectant

Zoflora Concentrated Disinfectant comes in small containers of 120ml or 250ml. It won't add much weight to your shopping and it won't fill up much of a shopping bag. The box has a scratch 'n' sniff panel to allow you to experience the aroma to help you decide from the many varieties available.

The disinfectant has 3 main features:

  • It eliminates 99.9% bacteria. Including e.coli, MRSA , salmonella, listeria, influenza (H1N1), human herpes virus & RSV.
  • Odours are eliminated. Household smells such as drains, bins and pet area smells are a thing of the past.
  • All day freshness.

I went on a mad disinfecting spree throughout the house these last couple of days. I found Zoflora easy and pleasant to use. The rooms I've used it in have ended up with a long lasting, fresh smell. The smell is not overpowering like some products. Also many disinfectants smell very clinical and not all that plesant, but I found Zoflora's scent to be quite nice, like an air freshener.

It was a bit of nuisance measuring out the exact amount to mix one lid's worth of disinfectant with. Although for a second and subsequent times I found it easy enough to just remember how far up the bowl the water was the first time and just fill it up by eye. The smell of the disinfectant in the bottle is quite strong but is fine after being
diluted. It mixed into the water with no problems. It is such a small amount in the water that it doesn't thicken up or anything like that, which makes it easy to wipe with. It mentions on the packaging that it is harmful in contact with skin so I popped on a pair of rubber gloves. I did manage to spill some on my arm at some point but I washed it off
and I never noticed any ill-effects. It dries as quick as it would if it was just water and then the area you've cleaned is ready for use again. I was a little surprised that it doesn't have a child-proof lid.

Zoflora concentrated disinfectant can be used for general disinfection of surfaces by diluting 1 part disinfectant to 40 parts water - it's small but goes a long way! The 120ml bottles make almost 5 litres, and the 250ml bottles make 10 litres. At this strength it is suitable for floors, tiles, worktops, sinks, toilets, hard surface pet areas, potties, dishcloths, drains, taps, baths and more.

You can also use it as spray to create a fragrant freshness throughout the house.

"Tried and tested by generations, this antibacterial disinfectant range contains an effective odour neutraliser and smells so fresh and fragrant you'll want to use it everywhere.

There are many products on the market that effectively kill germs but unfortunately, many of them aren't very kind on your nose. Triple Action Zoflora is different. This powerful concentrated antibacterial disinfectant liquid not only kills 99.9% of bacteria and viruses, but also contains a powerful odour elimination ingredient and beautiful long lasting fragrance leaving your home hygienically clean and fresh.

It is also particularly effective in areas where odours may be an issue, such as rubbish bins, toilets, damp rooms and clean-ups of vomit, pet accidents, spilt milk etc."


  1. Interesting about how many bugs it kills. I wonder does it also kill C.Diff (because only chlorine kills that).
