Diluting your Zoflora disinfectant

For best results we recommend diluting your Zoflora concentrated disinfectant in a spray bottle. Dilute Zoflora using the ratio 1:40 with water. E.g. 1 capful of Zoflora will be added to 400ml of water. This will create a convenient, yet powerful and fragrant disinfectant, whilst also using up any old trigger bottles you have lying around! 

You may also prefer using a cloth and having your Zoflora diluted in a bowl of water.

Your Zoflora disinfectant can be used on most surfaces within your car so you can take comfort in knowing that our products kill 99.9% of bacteria and viruses, including SARS-CoV-2 (Coronavirus). 

Be sure not to mix your Zoflora product with any other cleaning products as Zoflora works best alone, maintaining its germ-killing power for 2 weeks once diluted, helping you and passengers to stay free of germs and harmful bacteria.

Now that you have all the utensils you need to carry out your deep clean, it’s time to follow these steps...

Step 1: Remove and recycle rubbish

When cleaning your car, first ensure you have taken out all your belongings so that you can reach every part of your car. This includes any clothing and rubbish you may have. It is worth arranging two bags for this part of the process as you can remove and recycle rubbish in one bag and keep valuable items in the other.

Step 2: Vacuum and clean the car floor, mats & seats

Use a vacuum to clean up the inside of your car, including the car mats, floors and the car seats to remove any noticeable dirt and dust - and don't forget the car boot. This can be taken care of with a microfiber cloth which is a great tool for expelling areas of noticeable dust that has collected in tricky areas, including between the front seats and other small gaps that are hard to reach.

Step 3: Spray and clean the seats

Clean the fabric seats of your car by spraying your diluted Zoflora mixture liberally across them, letting them dry before letting any people or animals sit on them. This will remove any potential bacteria and viruses clinging to your seats whilst also filling the vehicle with a beautiful fragrance that will last for at least 24 hours. 


Step 4: Wipe the dashboard and steering wheel

Use the same Zoflora product to easily clean your dashboard and steering wheel by spraying it onto your microfiber cloth and to wiping it down. Cleaning between all the nooks and crannies whilst paying more attention to the high contact areas such as leavers and gear sticks.

Step 5: Finish by brushing and wiping down the car details

Spray your Zoflora fragrance on any other details in your car, including the door handles, mirrors, windows, glove box and seat belts. Wipe these details down, using a small brush to clear any dirt from hard to reach places, bringing the beautiful fragrance to every corner of your vehicle.

Please note: Zoflora is not recommended to be used on leather. If your car has leather seats we would recommend using a specialist product for best results. Allow all surfaces to dry completely before use.
