When I was a kid, my Mum was a clean freak. I remember my Dad moaning at her once because he’d fallen over in the hallway of the flat. She had polished the floor till she could see her face in it, then placed the doormat over the top. An accident in the making. Then straight through the door and landing upon on his derriere, comes my 6ft 6in, 18 stone Dad. He wasn’t a happy chappy, but after that, she decided not to polish any more and instead clean the floor with Zoflora.
Zoflora Super Invention
In 1922, Zoflora removed the bitter, odiferous smell of carbolic acid and replaced it with beautiful fragrances derived from flowers. The germ cleaning power of carbolic acid was sensational but mixing it with a gorgeous scent took the domestic scene by storm. Everyone wanted to try this amazing stuff – and they still do today.
My Mum’s fragrance of choice for our house was “Bouquet”. It’s a scent that for me anyway, evokes memories of the being a kid in the 70s and 80s being warned quite firmly, not to walk on the kitchen floor in my bare feet as she didn’t want any marks on it, and if we did we’d be shooed off it with the sloppy end of the mop.
These days, Zoflora boasts a multitude of fragrances and several forms – Concentrated Disinfectants, as well as Antibacterial, Sprays to boot. The latest scent and for me, and by far one of their sweetest varieties is the limited edition 3 in 1, Twilight Garden.
Twilight Garden is a mix of oriental lilies, ylang ylang and jasmine with fruity peach and apple. Anything with ylang-ylang for me is an absolute winner but with the addition of the peach and apple, makes this an extraordinary Summery scent to be proud of.
It’s pet-friendly, so there’s no need to worry when you wipe over your kitchen floor that your pets are going to hurt their paws like they would with bleach or other equally environmentally unfriendly disinfectants.
Zoflora is and always will be one of the most versatile of cleaning solutions as it cuts through dirt and grime with one wipe of a loaded mop and it’s easy on the pocket at around £1.50 per 120ml bottle. If you fancy giving it a try, you can buy Zoflora at any good supermarket or corner shop – and you too can have a fruity smelling house!
