Undiluted Zoflora can be poured down ceramic and metal sinks, drains and toilets to kill bacteria and viruses, whilst also eliminating odours.

Zoflora disinfectant can also be diluted and used as a spray to create fragrant freshness throughout the home.

Do not allow contact with polished wood, painted, varnished or composite granite surfaces. Zoflora is not recommended for use on concrete, concrete imprint driveways, patios, or other dyed outdoor surfaces.

For general disinfection of all other surfaces, use Zoflora diluted 1 to 40 with water. One capful of the 120ml, 250ml or 500ml bottle sizes (10ml) will make approximately 400ml of full-strength disinfectant.

Yes.

Unfortunately we have not tried and tested mixing Zoflora with other cleaning products, so we are unable to recommend mixing Zoflora with any other substances.

Unfortunately we have never tried and tested this method, so we are unable to recommend mixing Zoflora with any other substances.

We do not recommend this as Zoflora is a flammable liquid undiluted and as we have not tried and tested this method, we cannot tell you if it will affect your steam mop.

A disinfectant is a substance which contains chemicals that kill viruses and bacteria. Zoflora concentrated antibacterial disinfectant has a unique triple action formula which kills viruses and bacteria with an effective odour neutraliser and a selection of bespoke, high-quality fragrances.

Zoflora products can be used as often as required throughout the home to keep surfaces and areas hygienically clean and smelling fresh.

The active ingredient is benzalkonium chloride.

We are constantly exposed to various microorganisms in our daily lives. Most of these microorganisms are harmless, and some actually help to keep us healthy. But some microorganisms can be harmful and cause real health hazards such as food poisoning, sickness and diarrhoea, and coughs and colds.

These harmful microorganisms are known as 'germs'. These "germs" live all around us on surfaces, in the air, in plants, pets and people. Examples of harmful microorganisms include:

  • bacteria e.g. salmonella, which can cause food poisoning
  • viruses e.g. rhinovirus, which can cause colds
  • fungi e.g. candida, which can cause thrush

Disinfection reduces the number of microorganisms to a level not harmful to health. When diluted 1 part Zoflora to 40 parts water, Zoflora antibacterial disinfectant kills 99.9% of viruses and bacteria found in the home. Click here to find out more about the viruses and bacteria that Zoflora is effective against, and how to prevent infection. Use disinfectants safely. Always read the label and product information before use.

We can assure you that Zoflora is not tested on animals, nor are any of the ingredients within the product by our suppliers.

Our Zoflora trigger spray bottles are now available to purchase online exclusively on our website. You can find them here. 

Safety

Make sure you're using Zoflora safely around the home by reading the answers to some common questions.

When correctly diluted, Zoflora antibacterial disinfectant, and all the other Zoflora products in the range can be used around children. However, undiluted Zoflora is harmful if it comes into contact with the skin or is swallowed, so always keep the container out of the sight and reach of children.

When correctly diluted, Zoflora disinfectant may be used where most pets are kept. It will kill 99.9% of bacteria and eliminate unpleasant odours. Do not allow pets to lick or walk on newly treated surfaces - keep them off until everywhere is dry. When disinfecting pet toys/feeding bowls, rinse thoroughly after disinfection and dry before returning to the animal. Zoflora is not suitable for use in vivaria or other housing where reptiles are kept. Use disinfectants safely. Always read the label and product information before use.

Undiluted Zoflora antibacterial disinfectant may cause sensitisation or irritation when it comes into contact with the skin and it is recommended to wear rubber gloves when using. If splashed in the eyes or on the skin, wash well with water and consult a doctor. Wash your hands after use.

If swallowed, seek medical advice immediately and show the container and label.
