Cleaning fanatics are using fabric softener room diffusers to make their homes smell heavenly

November 30, 2021

There really is nothing quite like the smell of freshly washed sheets.

Thanks to a surge in popularity of in-wash scent boosting fabric softeners, it can be tempting to wish you could bottle it as perfume.

So it’s no surprise to hear that many people are keen to spread the scent around their homes even further.

Savvy shoppers have been making the most of their fabric softeners by converting them into home reed diffusers.

TikTok users were left inspired by a hack using Lenor Unstoppables scented washing beads.

Make use of your old diffusers by filling them with a handful of diluted beads before adding the reeds.

"Wow, this is brilliant," someone commented on a video shared by Charla's Cleaning Hacks on TikTok.

“Oo, I’m definitely going to try this,” one person wrote, while another added: “Nice hack, I’m going to try it!”

So now you can enjoy the gorgeous scents all-around your home.

Zoflora and Fabulousa also make similar scented products that some users claim work just as well as Lenor.

Back in 2020 our favourite clean queen Mrs Hinch told her followers about the trick she uses to figure out if she likes the scent of Zoflora disinfectant.

Filming the process for her 4 million followers the influencer showed how she mixes the product with boiling water and leaves it to infuse a room with scent overnight.

But some of those watching had a note of caution to share when they took to the site to write their replies.

One homeowner wrote: "Can't believe I'm having to write another warning…. please, please, please… do not mix Zoflora with boiling water.

"It is a disinfectant, it is not meant to be inhaled. I am obviously not talking about when being used for cleaning, I am talking about leaving it out on a counter all night with the sole purpose of the ‘fragrance’ filling the room/house."

As more readers took to their keyboards to warn against trying the 'hack' Zoflora released a statement saying that the product should not be used as an air freshener.

It stated: "We do not advise using Zoflora with boiling water as this has not been tested, and could potentially negatively impact the ingredients within Zoflora and the vapour they release."
