Mrs Hinch has surprised fellow cleaning-enthusiasts with a recent Zoflora hack.

The influencer, who has a whopping 3.7m Instagram followers, posted her trick for getting your room to smell like Zoflora.

Fans love the disinfectant for its attractive scents – some of which smell like designer perfumes.

But, followers have branded Mrs Hinch’s tip as “dangerous”.

Sophie Hinchcliffe, 30, a mum-of-one, posted the trick to her Insta stories, reports the Daily Record.

She said to add boiling water to a jar filled with some Zoflora.

Mrs Hinch said it was “the only way I can work out if I like a new scent”.

However, Sophie’s tip has been criticised – and some fans are asking if she knows what she’s doing.

Plus, the manufacturers of Zoflora have also come out to warn against following Sophie’s example.

They said that mixing the disinfectant with boiling water should not be done as the results “have not been tested”.

Posting to the “ Mrs Hinch Made me Do It ” Facebook page, Emma Stephanie said: "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."

Sophie said that she likes to fill a jar with the disinfectant and boiling water

She added: “If you want your room to smell nice, use a wax melt?

“Rather than advocating on Instagram to leave Zoflora sitting in boiling water to release its fumes all night?”

She continued: “And I'm not here to pick her apart.

“Although God forbid you recommend against doing something dangerous if she's done it… might as well have killed someone!"

Other Hinch fans pitched in with their take on the situation.

One person said: “Honestly still can’t get my head round how people are practically huffing household disinfectant.”

A second commented: “Boiling water creates steam, Zoflora is in that steam and is shouldn't be inhaled.

“A lot of people here stating that they get headaches /asthma reactions when they use it.”

A fan called Mrs Hinch out on Facebook

Another said: "Both the liquid and vapour are highly flammable and the advice is to avoid contact with heat (hot water is by its very definition a heat source).

“It suggests firefighters wear BA when dealing with it.

“If you have fumes in your kitchen near a boiler with a naked flame the results could be catastrophic."

Others joked that Zoflora should come out with a range of candles or diffusers so fans can get their fragrance fix without endangering themselves.

One reminded the group to be kind to Sophie and said: “I think people need to remember Mrs Hinch is just a normal woman who cleans her home.

“Not a professional cleaner or someone who invents cleaning products.”

A Zoflora spokeswoman said: "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.

"The use of boiling water offers no benefits in terms of the disinfecting properties of Zoflora, and we therefore recommend using with cool or warm water.

“All of our recommended product uses are related to the elimination of bacteria and viruses as Zoflora is an effective disinfectant, and we therefore do not recommend any use which isn’t aligned to the function of this type of product.”
