A woman has revealed that she has some 300 bottles of Zoflora in her stash.

One of the things you realise as you start to grow up is that as much of a faff as cleaning can be, the feeling of a clean house makes it so worth it in the end.

You don't have to be scrubbing every square inch of your home with a toothbrush, but things being tidy and not too cluttered does wonders.

However, one lady has developed a love affair with cleaning brand, Zoflora, keeping hundreds of bottles of the various cleaning products in her house at any one time.

Rachel Laithwaite, 52, has made it her mission to collect as many different types of the popular cleaning brand as she can. She first fell in love with the scent of it when she was just 13, and has been hooked ever since.

She told The Scottish Sun: "I instantly feel uplifted by the fragrance Zoflora delivers. My grandma used Zoflora so the aroma brings out feelings of nostalgia and comfort, as well as cleanliness. In one word, using Zoflora makes me happy."

There's nothing like a bit of nostalgia to bring out those warm fuzzy feelings. Smell is also particularly evocative of memory, and can instantly transport you somewhere, whether it's a family recipe, or a lover's perfume.

Rachel added: "I don't just use the product for cleaning purposes, but I am a self-confessed Zoflora collector – gathering and using Zoflora is my hobby over anything, and I now have over 300 bottles in my cleaning stash."

Not only that, but Rachel has taken it upon herself to assemble as many different flavours as she can.

A new launch means an instant trip to the shops.

She said: "Whenever there is a new launch, my husband can never find me as without fail, I'll be out at my local Home Bargains or B&M trying to get my hands on the new product. When they launched the Multipurpose Disinfectant Cleaner, I bought it in every single fragrance!"

Despite the collection, she does also use it for the day to day cleaning as well.

She said: “During Covid I must have got through gallons and gallons."

People collect all manner of weird and wonderful things. From historical objects, books, and fossils to wine, whisky, art, Star Wars memorabilia or vinyl records - people just love getting similar things and putting them together.

There are also the more eclectic collections, such as garden gnomes or traffic cones, as well as the downright creepy like human remains.

Luckily, it's only Zoflora.
