Homeowner reveals putting a sanitary towel soaked in Zoflora disinfectant into an old air freshener container makes her house smell ‘amazing’ – but others say the hack is ‘too far’
- Sophie Harris, from the UK, took to Facebook group Mrs Hinch Made Me Do It
- Homeowner told users she’d been trying to find use for her empty air freshener
- She tried soaking sanitary towel in Zoflora and said her house smelt ‘amazing’
An ingenious homeowner has taken to social media to reveal an unusual hack she uses to make her house smell ‘amazing’.
Creative Sophie Harris, from the UK, took to the Facebook group Mrs Hinch Made Me Do It to explain how she soaks an unused sanitary towel in fragrant disinfectant Zoflora and places it inside an empty air freshener container.
She then praised the unusual hack for helping to waft the fresh aroma around her home.
‘Been trying to find use for empty air freshener so I decided to try something- sanitary towel, Zoflora and then pop it on side,’ she wrote. ‘My house smells amazing.’

The Facebook user went on to share a picture of her now Zoflora-infused sanitary towel squashed into the empty air freshener container.
Following the post, members of the group rushed to commend the useful trick, with one calling it a ‘brilliant idea’.
One impressed social media user wrote: ‘Sanitary towel is more absorbent so makes sense,’ while a second commented: ‘Brilliant idea. Going to try that.’
Another wasn’t startled by the new invention and claimed she had already been using sanitary towels and Zoflora to keep their bin smelling fresh.
She penned: ‘I stick one inside the bin lid with Zoflora on! You can’t see it and it’s not stupid if it works.’
Meanwhile, a further admitted: ‘I do that but stick them on the back of radiators. My 17-year-old son was not amused.’
Following the innovative hack, some Facebook users shared their praise and suggested they would give the tip a try
However, others seemed far from pleased with the idea, with one deeming it a ‘step too far’ and another casting light on the possible environmental implications of the trick.
‘Not the best idea in my opinion… all sanitary pads are plastic-based and have non-biodegradable content… but not to worry they only take around 800 years to decompose,’ wrote one.
Another user got straight to the point and simply wrote: ‘Too far!!’
Zoflora is a fragrant concentrated disinfectant that can be used around the home as a cleaning product and claims to help ‘combat the spread and reproduction of bacteria and viruses in the home’.
