Why am I reviewing this product?
Been mum to 7 children and having two German Shepherds in my home only means one thing , nasty smells.
Not saying my children smell nasty but the mess and dirt they bring in with them on a daily basis , or even the teenagers boys room smells unpleasant at times (if you ever wondered what that smell was coming from the teen boys room, just check for those odd 10 or more stinky lost sport socks that magically appear hidden under their beds).
To be honest , it is not that bad but the dogs do tend to leave a smell and although people say they cant smell anything when they come in to my house , I certainly can and with it coming up to winter that wet dog smell is going to become a little more abrasive .
I have never really been a dog fan but they came with my husband an so I have had to deal with the stink and mess they cause .
The fact they are out in the garden where there are all sorts of germs and unpleasant nasties , then bringing them into my home and spreading it all over my home is something I can never seem to bare thinking about . I may not be able to see the bacteria but I certainly know they are there.
I was sent a fantastic traditional cleaning agent last week by Zoflora.
Zoflora has been used in my home for many years and in fact I also remember my mum using it when I was small too so it goes to show this is one of the favourites and effective cleaning agents .
Who are Zoflora?
Back in the early 1920s, Nathan Thornton was the Chemist and Worked as the Manager at a tar distillery and ammonia Works in Huddersfield which produced a whole range of coal tar by-products, including disinfectants and soaps.
Carbolic acid was the main disinfectant, which killed germs but also left behind a horrible smell and this is where Mr Thornton saw a gap in the market.
Mr Thoerntons special knowledge led him to the development of Zoflora disinfectant - a powerful disinfectant with twice the germ-killing power of carbolic acid, but with beautiful fragrance oils extracted from flowers.
Developed to be used originally in large or public areas such as cinemas and factories , the sole purpose was for eliminating bad smells and smoke etc .
Realising that people wanted the Zoflora disinfectant in their homes Mr Thornton then came up with what was known as the 'Domestic user' and for a small cost of only 3 shillings the Zoflora could be purchased from a chemist for a small 2oz bottle that was then to be diluted to be used around the home.
Over the years the aromas of the Zoflora has always been a fascinating mix of fragrances .Some eSome earlier fragrances included Honeysuckle, Hawthorn, Violet and Night Scented Stocks, while others such as Bouquet, Lavender and Sweet Pea have stood the test of time and are still as popular now as they were nearly 80 years ago.
Changing dramatically over the years Zoflora has gone from being sold in a chemist to now having a real loyal customer following of over 2 million households buying the brand.
In recent years the company has invested in a multi-million pound manufacturing and packing facility for Zoflora based in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, in order to cope with increasing demand and it just keeps growing.
One of my most loved cleaning home aromas are that of winter warmers such as Winter spice, Warm cranberry or Cinnamon like scents and having been sent the Warm Cinnamon Concentrated Disinfectant from Zoflora, you can imagine my surprise to see it was one of my favourite scents.
The 3 in 1 action Limited Edition Concentrated Disinfectant promises what all Zoflora products do ,
This year for celebrating their 90th birthday, Zoflora brought out 3 new scents
I was lucky enough to get the other fantastic Warm Cinnamon which is not even on that list yet.
You can purchase a bottle of 120ml from Tesco for only £1.33, which in my eyes is very reasonable , in fact so good , I often feel tempted to buy in bulk .
How I found this product .
The fact that the disinfectant comes in a very small bottle has no matter to me at all as they last me ages. For me , I get 5 spray bottles from each small bottle .
For me , the smell is everything, I used to be able to put up with strong smelling cleaning agents but getting a little older , my headaches come on a lot easier and I can sometimes be left feeling dizzy and sick .
Using the Zoflora gives me a clean head, There is no strong odour of chemical and I don't tend to feel dizzy no matter how much product I use.
I used the Warm Cinnamon concentrate on my wood and tile flooring . These are the areas my two dogs seem to wander around mostly after being outside , so my downstairs floors were in need of a strenuous refresh yet I had no need to get on hand and knee to scrub at the stubborn marks . Diluting the Disinfectant and using it on floors have left my home fresh and clean , no sign of the dogs until you catch them sprawling over the sofa as if they own the place and more importantly for me, the floor is squeaky clean with no smear marks which is what I would usually get using a mop with other products .
Not only was it great for my floors but I also used this in the bathroom and toilet and using them on the white ceramic basins really did
