5 Minute Cleanalong: Kitchen

If you’re a busy person, spending hours cleaning each area of your home just isn’t realistic. Instead, tackle each room in five-minute bursts, for a beautiful smelling, safe and hygienically clean home.

For many, kitchens are the heart of the home. But they are also hotspots for bacteria and viruses. To keep your kitchen safe and clean, grab your favourite Zoflora fragrance and follow our 5-minute cleanalong! 

Start at the Sink

Sinks do a lot of the dirty work. Cleaning cups and dishes, washing food and vegetables, even soaking soiled sports kit - it's all going on in there. So it's really important to disinfect as well as keeping the area clean.

Simply, run some warm water into the sink then add 1 capful of Zoflora for every 400ml of water. Then wipe it down. 


Tackle the Taps

You’ve cleaned your sink, but what about your taps? Taps see a lot of dirty hands in an average day, especially when they're being used during food preparation. This makes them a popular spot for bacteria to hide. So use the same diluted Zoflora as you have for your sink and wipe all around your taps, making sure to cover all areas to eradicate any nasty germs. 


Work the Worktops

As the main food preparation area, worktops see a lot of nasties at every meal time.  So it’s extremely important to take the fight to germs and keep your worktops clean and germ-free.

Dilute 1 capful of your favourite Zoflora into 400ml of water, either into a trigger spray bottle or into a sink of warm water. Use the diluted solution to work your way around the worktops, wiping down surfaces with a clean cloth.


Banish bacteria from the bin

The bin is a hotspot for breeding bacteria from food waste, and if not cleaned regularly can quickly start to make things smell bad. Simply soak a clean cloth in diluted Zoflora (1 capful per 400ml of water) and use it to wipe down the whole bin, not forgetting the lid and surrounding areas inside and out. 


Finish with a soak

Just like we like to end our day with a relaxing soak in the bath, our cloths do to. Bacteria LOVE dishcloths and sponges, more than you might think. The items you use for cleaning are actually perfect breeding grounds themselves for nasty germs. 

Get in the habit of leaving your dishcloths and sponges to soak once you’ve finished your five minute cleanalong. Simply fill your sink with warm water and add 1 capful of Zoflora for every 400ml of water, then leave your cleaning items to soak to eliminate 99.9% of bacteria and viruses.

We hope you enjoyed our five minute cleanalong. Be sure to share your cleanalong photos with us on Facebook or Instagram @LoveZoflora.
