Cleaning fans are stockpiling this £1 ‘Mrs Hinch’ must-have product
The £1 cleaning product fans are STOCKPILING – because it started selling out after being championed by Instagram sensation Mrs Hinch
- Fans of Zoflora have bought up to 72 bottles each amid fears it could sell out
- Scented disinfectant is favourite of Essex cleaning obsessive Sophie Hinchcliffe
- Mumsnet users claim it freshens up floors, bins and even washing machines
Cleaning sensation Mrs Hinch has caused a popular budget product to run out in stores across the UK as fans clamour to copy the Instagram star.
The Essex hairdresser, 28, whose real name is Sophie Hinchcliffe has amassed more than a million followers by providing step-by-step cleaning instructions and revealing her hero products.
One of the products she regularly champions is the disinfectant Zoflora, which starts from just £1 a bottle, and comes in 22 different fragrances with Mountain Air, Linen Fresh and Springtime being her favourites.
The influencer dilutes the concentrated mixture with water and uses it to mop her floors daily, as well as sprinkling it on kitchen roll and placing it at the bottom of the kitchen bin for a lasting fresh scent.
But now fans are complaining that stocks of the disinfectant are running low, and Mrs Hinch is to blame.
‘Mrs Hinch is actually ruining my Zoflora needs. It’s sold out everywhere and I can’t get my hands on it,’ one tweeted. ‘Think I might have to result to Amazon’s silly prices for it.’

One Instagram user posted a photo of a whopping 72 different bottles, pictured in a kitchen drawer.
Devotees have shared over 38,000 posts tagged #zoflora and 10,000 tagged #zofloraaddict with customers declaring their love for the product alongside pictures of the distinctive multi-coloured packaging.
While Zoflora’s primary use is as a disinfectant (it promises to kill 99.9 per cent of bacteria and viruses in the home) its famed for the divine scent it can fill a space with, too.
The brand’s own website states it can be diluted and used as an air freshener spray, poured undiluted down sinks and even used on rugs, patios and artificial grass to eliminate odours.

Users of popular parenting forum Mumsnet have also been singing its praises while sharing the unusual uses they’ve found for the concentrated mixture. While some swear by Mrs Hinch’s ‘bin’ hack, others have revealed they even pop it in their washing machine.
‘I run Zoflora through my machine maybe once a month and a washing machine descaler also once a month (or there abouts) and do both on a 60 degree cycle. Always fresh and no issues,’ comments one.
Some users, however, have shared their concern over the product which is flammable when undiluted and can be dangerous when mixed with other cleaning chemicals.
