There is something special about this time of year, walking in the country side and coming across bluebells. They are a sign that it is springtime and they are always lovely to see. The British climate is perfect for bluebells and you often see carpets of them thoughout wooded areas. They are protected in the wild though, so look and do not pick.
I was excited to learn that Zoflora have launched a new fragrance called Bluebell Woods as part of their 90th birthday celebrations. Zoflora is a disinfectant product, which comes in a range of gorgeous fragrances. You can use one for each room, or choose one to suit your mood. I was delighted to be given the chance to try the product. Interestingly Zoflora was originally created for use in British dance halls in 1922 but quickly became a household favourite because of its fabulous scents and disinfectant properties. It has been proven to kill 99.9% of bacteria and viruses while neutralising odours and leaving a lovely fragrance in the room.
Zoflora Bluebell woods comes in a lovely blue box with a picture of a bluebell on it. Inside is 120ml bottle of the disinfectant. It is a concentrated disinfectant so should be added to water, one 10 ml cap full will make up 400ml of disinfectant. It is a great space saver, the little bottle does not take up much room in the cupboard but contains lots of cleaning power. The disinfectant can be used in loads of different places, any surface like tiles, sinks, taps, floors, in your toilet or drains and even on dish-clothes. It is very versatile and it is godd to know that the germs are being killed as you clean.
I was not at all sure what the fragrance would smell like, I could not remember how bluebells smell. I loved the fragrance, it is a delicate floral smell but you can also smell the hints of the woodland in the earthy undertones. It is a lovely fresh scent and I love the way that you can smell that the room had been cleaned after you use it. It proves that I have actually been cleaning, not doing nothing all day! The scent lingers in the room for a while afterwards.
It is great that Zoflora is also safe to use on pet areas and pet toys, as long as you let the surface dry before you let your pet on it. My dog has some very well loved and well chewed toys and I worry about them harbouring germs. One wipe with Zoflora and my worries are gone. I use Zoflora regularly and have several different fragrances in my cupboard but this one is my new favourite.
