Mrs Hinch’s favourite disinfectant Zoflora could help kill coronavirus in your home

THE makers of Mrs Hinch’s favourite disinfectant, Zoflora, have revealed how it could help kill coronavirus in your home. 

Fans of cleaning sensation Mrs Hinch, whose real name is Sophie Hinchliffe, will recall seeing the Instagram star frequently using the bacteria-killing cleaning product in her home. 

A Zoflora spokesperson claimed that despite the heavenly-scented spray not being tested on the COVID-19 strain, it could help to kill the virus. 

They told The Mirror: “'The science suggests that Zoflora would be effective against this strain, as it is against other similar viruses within the standard five minutes contact time.”

The popular cleaning product costs around £1 per bottle, and can be purchased from supermarkets and many home stores. 

The spokesperson added: “Like all other disinfectant products, we have been unable to test efficacy against the specific COVID-19 strain of Coronavirus.”

Huddersfield-based Thornton and Ross LTD, who make the disinfectant, said the spray had been proven to kill 99.9 per cent of bacteria and viruses. 

Shoppers can pick up the cleaning product in one of their 22 different fragrances, with the Mountain Air, Linen Fresh and Springtime options being heavily endorsed by Mrs Hinch.

Typically the Essex-based cleanfluencer, 30, dilutes Zoflora with water before using it to clean everything from her floors to her kitchen bin, thanks to its scent. 

How to protect against coronavirus?

  • Wash your hands with soap and water often – do this for at least 20 seconds.
  • Always wash your hands when you get home or into work.
  • Use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze.
  • Put used tissues in the bin immediately and wash your hands afterwards.
  • Try to avoid close contact with people who are unwell.

She’s also been seen in the past doing a “Zoflora hour”, where she’s used it to clean everything from Ronnie’s nappy bin to her kitchen cupboards. 

According to the website, Zoflora can also be used as an air freshener, and can be poured undiluted down sinks to eliminate odours. 

While a 120ml bottle of the Springtime fragrance will only set you back £1.48, Morrisons was selling a 500ml mega bottle for £5.45.

Studies have shown that disinfectants and bleaches containing ethanol, hydrogen peroxide or sodium hypochlorite are most effective as they virtually destroy all of the virus' pathogenic particles.

Professor Sally Bloomfield of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine previously explained to The Sun that these chemicals are often found in supermarket cleaning products, such as bleach and alcohol-based items.

A bleach with a concentration of around 0.5 per cent will be enough to help rid your home of coronavirus germs.

And if you’re looking for an alcohol-based hand sanitiser, you want one that contains somewhere between 62 per cent and 80 per cent alcohol – anything less is not as effective.

Meanwhile, fans of the cleaning sensation have also used the disinfectant to get rid of "shameful" limescale on their showers and even turned one scent into an air freshener using a sanitary pad.
