Cleaning tips: How to use Zoflora disinfectant spray safely around pets in the home

Zoflora has become one of the most popular cleaning products in recent years thanks to cleaning sensation Mrs Hinch who often shares tips and tricks when it comes to using the fragrant cleaning spray. It can be used on almost all surfaces when diluted in water as well as being used to get rid of unwanted pet odours. However there are guidelines to follow when it comes to using it around pets that must be followed to guarantee the safety of your pet.

Zoflora is a concentrated disinfectant that comes in many different scents to leave your home smelling fresh for hours.

In order to use it safely, it is recommended to dilute one capful of the disinfectant to 400ml of water.

Pets often can leave an odour around the hope and Zoflora have some top tips on masking the unwanted smell.

Zoflora says: “Life wouldn’t be the same without our furry family members, but every pet owner knows that accidents can, and most probably will, happen. When they do, here’s how to use Zoflora to eliminate odours from carpets and rugs.”

Mop your floors with Zoflora

Using four capfuls of your chosen Zoflora fragrance, dilute this into a bucket or bowl with 1.5 litres of hot water.

This will not only disinfect the area, removing unwanted bacteria and germs but it will also leave the area free from pet odour.

Keep pets away after cleaning

This ultimately is one of the most important steps when using the disinfectant.

Zoflora says: “Don’t allow your beloved furry friends to walk on or lick any wet or treated areas until they are completely dry. Lock them out of the room until it is safe.”

Pet bedding and cages

Remove soft bedding

Before cleaning a pets cage, remove any soft bedding and toys, these should be washed in the usual way.

Zoflora said: “Just dilute some of your favourite Zoflora fragrance in water, soak a cloth in it and wipe down pet beds, baskets and cages with the solution.”

Don’t forget your toothbrush

For smaller areas that are hard to reach, using a toothbrush can help remove any hidden bacteria from nooks and crannies.

Allow to dry

Again another vital step when it comes to cleaning pet items.

Zoflora says: “Always allow items and pet areas to dry before allowing furry friends to come into contact with them”

There are a range of Zoflora disinfectants that are recommended for use around pets as they help eliminate odour.

These are in the scents Fresh Home Green Valley, Fresh Home Coastal Breeze and Fresh Home Mountain Air.

Zoflora can be picked up for as little as £1 from retailers like B&M and Home Bargains as well as now being stocked in popular supermarkets too.

When diluted 1:40, the sweet smelling product has proven to be efficient in killing against coronaviruses.

It has also been proven to be effective against other common household bacteria including E.coli, Salmonella, Listeria, and viruses such as Influenza-Type A.
