Bliss Home Care | 10 Ways to Keep your Home Clean & Healthy This Winter Winter brings a cozy atmosphere to our homes, but it also comes with challenges such as increased indoor time, poor indoor air quality, flu season and wet weather. Keeping your home clean and healthy in winter can be easier than you think.


Here are our 10 ways to keep your home clean and your family healthy in winter months:


  1. Regular Handwashing

Ensure you’re practising frequent handwashing to prevent the spread of germs. Keep hand sanitizers and antibacterial soap in easily accessible locations around your home such as near sinks, basins and entryways.

  1. Sanitize High-Touch Surfaces

As part of your home cleaning routine, wipe down frequently touched surfaces like doorknobs, light switches and remote controls with disinfectant wipes or a solution of water and vinegar. Do this regularly to reduce the spread of germs and reduce the risk of illness.

  1. Use Doormats and Shoe Racks

Place doormats at the front and back entrances of your home and encourage family members and guests to remove their shoes before entering. This helps reduce the amount of dirt, debris and germs brought into your home.

  1. Maintain Indoor Air Quality

We tend to keep our doors and windows closed when it’s cold, however opening them for 5 to 10 minutes each day can make a significant impact to the indoor air quality in your home. You can also use an air purifier to reduce allergens and pollutants. Ensure you change HVAC filters regularly and consider adding houseplants to help purify the air. Learn more about the Benefits of Indoor Plants and the top 5 recommended plants for greatest health benefits.

  1. Dust Regularly

Dust furniture, shelves and any other surface that collects dust regularly using a microfiber cloth. Pay special attention to areas that tend to accumulate dust, such as ceiling fans, window sills and skirting boards. Dust can exacerbate respiratory and allergic reactions and usually contains a mixture of tiny particles, including dead skin cells, pet hair, pollen, dust mites and other allergens. When inhaled, these particles can irritate the respiratory tract, trigger allergies and lead to symptoms such as sneezing, coughing and itchy eyes. Prolonged exposure to dust can also contribute to chronic respiratory issues and other health problems so keep your home dust-free as much as possible.

  1. Deep Clean Carpets and Rugs

Winter weather can bring mud and moisture to your carpeted floors. Vacuum your carpets and rugs frequently to remove any debris and dirt and consider having them steam cleaned every 6 to 12 months to remove deep-seated dirt and allergens. You may like to read A Guide to Maintaining Carpets to enhance the longevity of your carpets.

  1. Keep Humidity Levels Balanced

Maintaining balanced humidity levels can help prevent the growth of mould and mildew, which thrive in damp conditions and can cause respiratory issues and allergic reactions. Balanced humidity also helps keep the skin hydrated and reduces the risk of respiratory infections and skin irritations, which are common in dry winter air. To maintain optimal humidity levels ensure your home is well ventilated or you can use a humidifier to enhance humidity levels.

  1. Wash Bedding Weekly

Wash sheets, pillowcases and frequently used blankets at least once a week in hot water to kill germs and dust mites. We recommend using hypoallergenic laundry detergent to reduce skin irritations. Also, ensure the bedding is completely dry before placing them back on your bed or storing them in cupboards to prevent any growth of mould and mildew.

Bliss Home Care | 10-Ways-to-Keep-your-Home-Clean-and-Healthy-This-Winter






  1. Stay on Top of Laundry

Wet and dirty clothes can pile up quickly in winter. When damp or wet clothes are in your washing basket for prolonged periods of time it can lead to mould and mildew growth. After washing, ensure the clothes are thoroughly dry before storing them.

  1. Disinfect Cleaning Tools

Remember to clean and disinfect your cleaning tools to maintain optimal hygiene and cleanliness throughout your home. This includes disinfecting items such as sponges, dusters, cleaning cloths, mops and vacuum filters, to prevent spreading germs within your home. A good way to naturally disinfect cleaning tools is to use warm/hot soapy water with a mild detergent or a natural disinfectant such as white vinegar or essential oils (eucalyptus or tea tree oil).

By incorporating these tips into your cleaning routine, you can maintain a clean and healthy home environment throughout the winter season, ensuring comfort and well-being for you and your family.

Bliss Home Care | Understanding Cleaning Chemicals for a Healthier Home

5 Tips for Safer Cleaning

Cleaning your home is essential for maintaining a healthy and comfortable living environment. By making informed choices and adopting healthier cleaning habits, you can protect yourself and your loved ones while keeping your home spotless.

  1. Read Labels

Always read product labels and be aware of the ingredients, especially if you are purchasing cleaning chemicals from supermarket shelves. The manufacturer won’t always have your best interest at heart.

  1. Use Natural Alternatives

Consider using natural cleaning products like vinegar, baking soda, lemon juice and essential oils in your home. Bliss Home Care Services only uses GECA certified and approved green cleaning products. These products are also available for purchase, click here for more information.

  1. Ventilate Your Home

Ensure good ventilation when using cleaning products to minimise inhalation of fumes. Opening windows and doors for 10 minutes each day also keeps your home fresh, eliminates bacteria and improves indoor air quality.

  1. Protect Yourself

Always wear gloves when cleaning, and if necessary wear a mask to protect your skin and respiratory tract and glasses to protect your eyes. Prevention is always better than dealing with the after-effects of chemical burns or skin irritation. Ensure any cleaning products and chemicals are stored in a safe place, away from young children and pets.

  1. Never Mix Chemicals

Avoid mixing cleaning chemicals at all times, especially bleach and ammonia, to prevent the release of toxic gases. Seek medical attention if you feel unwell or dizzy if you have been around chemical cleaning products.

Bliss Home Care | Kitchen Cleaning: 10 Natural Tips for Best Results







Kitchens are often the heart of the home. It’s where we come together with friends and family to enjoy food preparation, cooking, baking and socialising. It can get messy but that’s part of the fun! In this blog, we share 10 natural kitchen cleaning hacks to ensure your kitchen is always looking its best and ready for the next meal.

As you may know, we are incredibly passionate about green cleaning – it’s been one of our ethos since we started our home cleaning business. You may like to learn more about Green Cleaning and How it Benefits Your Health and Home. Making small changes to the cleaning products you use in your home can create longer and healthier life choices for you, your family, your pets, the environment and our future generations.

10 Natural Kitchen Cleaning Tips for Best Results


These natural kitchen cleaning hacks use common household items and simple techniques to tackle kitchen cleaning tasks effectively. Incorporate these hacks into your kitchen cleaning routine to save time and effort while achieving excellent results.

  1. Lemon and Salt Scrub

Cut a lemon in half and dip it in salt. Use the lemon as a scrubber to clean stainless steel sinks and tapware. The acidity of the lemon helps dissolve grease and stains, while the salt acts as a gentle abrasive for stubborn spots. Rinse thoroughly and wipe it dry with a lint-free cloth for sparkly results.

Bliss Home Care | Kitchen Cleaning: 10 Natural Tips for Best Results









  1. Microwave Steam Clean

Fill a microwave-safe bowl with water and add a few slices of lemon or a tablespoon of vinegar. Microwave the bowl on high for 2-3 minutes until the steam loosens food splatters and stains inside the microwave. Simply wipe the interior with a damp cloth for a clean, hygienic and fresh-smelling microwave.

  1. Vinegar and Baking Soda Drain Cleaner

Pour a cup of baking soda followed by a cup of vinegar down the drain. Let the mixture fizz for a few minutes to break down grease and odours. Turn on the tap to flush the drain with warm water. This will clear away any debris and keep your kitchen sink drain flowing smoothly.

  1. Coffee Grounds for Odour Removal

Place used coffee grounds in a bowl and leave them on your countertop, in the fridge or freezer to absorb any lingering odours. Coffee grounds are natural deodorisers that can help neutralise strong smells and keep your kitchen and fridge smelling fresh.

  1. Grease-Cutting Mixture

Mix a few drops of dish soap with warm water in a spray bottle to create a homemade grease-cutting cleaner. Use this grease-cutting solution to wipe down a greasy stove, rangehood, backsplashes and cabinet doors for a sparkling clean kitchen.

  1. Oven Steam Clean

Fill a heatproof dish with water and place it on the bottom rack of a cold oven. Heat the oven to 120°C and let the steam soften baked-on spills and grease for 20-30 minutes. Once the oven has cooled down, wipe away loosened debris with a damp cloth or sponge.







  1. Dishwasher Deep Clean

Place a cup of vinegar on the top rack of your dishwasher, and sprinkle baking soda on the bottom of the dishwasher. Run the dishwasher on a hot cycle for an effective and hygienic dishwasher. The vinegar disinfects while the baking soda freshens. Our tip is to take a before and after photo to notice the difference.

  1. Microfiber Cloth Magic

Microfibre cloths are one of our favourite cleaning items. You can use a microfiber cloth dampened with water to clean and polish stainless steel appliances, glass surfaces, and countertops without streaks or lint. Microfiber cloths are highly effective at trapping dirt and grime for a spotless finish. Best of all, you can put them in the wash and use them over and over.

  1. Rubbish Bin Refresh

Your rubbish bin can get a bit smelly so give it a good wash every few days to keep it fresh and clean. You can also sprinkle baking soda in the bottom to neutralise any odours and add your favourite essential oils such as peppermint, lavender or citrus for a fresh scent.

  1. The final touch – flourishing floors

After cleaning your kitchen, sweep the floor to remove any loose crumbs and debris. Mop the floor with a solution of warm water and a small amount of vinegar to disinfect your floors and leave them sparking and smelling fresh.

While cleaning may not be your favourite chore, it’s something we must all do to keep our home fresh and clean. While there are hundreds of toxic cleaning products on supermarket shelves the ones that work most effectively, and more importantly are not harmful to your health or the environment, are those you have in your pantry or cupboards at home.

In recent years, there has been a growing awareness of the importance of environmentally friendly practices in all aspects of our lives and home environment, including cleaning. Green cleaning, also known as eco-friendly or sustainable cleaning, involves using products and methods that minimise environmental impact and promote health and well-being.

In this blog, we explore the benefits of green cleaning for both your health and your home, and why it's an essential practice for today's conscientious individuals.

Benefits for Your Health

Bliss Home Care | Green Cleaning Benefits

  1. Reduced Exposure to Harmful Chemicals

Traditional cleaning products often contain harsh chemicals and toxins that can be harmful to both humans and the environment. You only need to read the warning labels on the products to be alarmed at how toxic they can be. By switching to green cleaning products made from natural ingredients you can reduce your exposure to these harmful substances and protect your health, the health of your family, pets and the environment.

  1. Improved Indoor Air Quality

Many commercial cleaning products contain volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that can pollute indoor air and contribute to respiratory problems such as asthma and allergies. Green cleaning products are free from these harmful chemicals, helping to improve indoor air quality and create a healthier living environment for you and your family. To further promote indoor air quality open doors and windows daily to circulate fresh air. You may also like to read our article, Benefits of Indoor Plants which outlines the benefits of indoor plants and which plants are best.

  1. Safer for Children and Pets

Children and pets are particularly vulnerable to the effects of toxic chemicals found in traditional cleaning products. Green cleaning products are safer and gentler, making them a better choice for households with young children and furry friends who may come into contact with cleaned surfaces.

Benefits for Your Home

Bliss Home Care | Green Cleaning

  1. Environmental Sustainability

Green cleaning products are made from renewable, biodegradable ingredients that have minimal impact on the environment. By choosing eco-friendly products and methods, you can reduce your carbon footprint and contribute to a healthier planet for future generations.

  1. Gentle on Surfaces

Harsh chemicals in traditional cleaning products can also damage surfaces over time, leading to wear and tear that requires costly repairs or replacements. Green cleaning products are gentler and less abrasive, helping to preserve the integrity of surfaces such as countertops, floors and appliances.

  1. Cost-Effective

Contrary to popular belief, green cleaning doesn't have to break the bank. Many eco-friendly cleaning products are affordable and can be made at home using simple ingredients like vinegar, lemon juice, and olive oil. Additionally, the long-term benefits of green cleaning, such as improved indoor air quality and reduced maintenance costs, can result in savings over time.

Make the Switch to Green Cleaning

Bliss Home Care | Green Cleaning

Green cleaning is more than just a trend. It’s a responsible choice that benefits both your health and the environment. Making the switch to green cleaning is easier than you may think. Many of us choose to buy chemical cleaners without giving them a lot of thought.

However, you may be surprised how readily available natural and eco-friendly products are. They can easily be incorporated into your regular routine. Natural products are often more cost-effective and do a better job than chemical alternatives. Make the switch to green cleaning and reap the rewards of a healthier and happier home. In our article, 10 Natural Home Cleaning Hacks, you’ll find some great tips on how to incorporate some simple ideas and household products into your regular cleaning routine.

If you are looking to hire a cleaning company, ensure the products they use are ethically sourced and eco-friendly. The cleaning products used by Bliss Home Care Services are certified by Good Environmental Choice Australia (GECA).

Bliss Home Care |10 tips keep your clean home between professional cleaning services10 Tips to Maintain a Clean Home Between Professional Cleaning Services.

Maintaining a clean and tidy home doesn't have to be an overwhelming task, especially when you have regular professional cleaning scheduled. We recommend incorporating some daily habits and quick cleaning routines to ensure your home is always looking its best.


Coming home to a clean and tidy home helps you feel relaxed after a busy day at work. It helps remove the frenzied cleaning spree when you’re having guests over. Additionally, if you have kids and are rushing from activity to activity, it can help reduce the overwhelm. More importantly, a clean and tidy home allows you to enjoy the space so much more!


  1. Create a Daily 3 Minute Cleaning Routine:
    Set aside a few minutes each day to tackle small cleaning tasks. This is especially helpful for the high traffic areas and those used on a daily basis, such as the kitchen and bathroom. Wipe down countertops, clear clutter from benches and sweep or vacuum high-traffic areas with your favourite eco-friendly cleaning products. Consistency is key to preventing dirt and grime from building up.
  2. Declutter Regularly:
    Take a few minutes each day to declutter surfaces and put items back in their designated places. This will not only make your home look tidier, you will also feel more organised and it will also make it easier to clean when you do your regular chores.
  3. Make Your Bed Every Morning:
    Start your day off on the right foot by making your bed as soon as you get up. It instantly makes your bedroom look tidier and sets a positive tone for the rest of the day.Make-your-bed-everyday






  1. Clean Up Spills and Messes Immediately:
    Don't let spills or messes linger. Take care of them right away to prevent stains and odours from setting in. Keep a supply of your favourite eco-friendly cleaning products handy for quick cleanups, especially in the kitchen and bathroom.
  2. Stay on Top of Laundry:
    Keep your laundry under control by doing small loads regularly rather than letting it pile up. Set a schedule for washing, drying, folding, and putting away clothes to avoid cluttering up your living spaces with laundry baskets.
  3. Wipe Down Surfaces Regularly:
    Make it a habit to wipe down kitchen counters, bathroom surfaces, and other frequently touched areas daily. Use your favourite eco-friendly cleaning products to remove germs and keep surfaces clean and germ free.
  4. Rotate Cleaning Tasks:
    Instead of trying to do everything at once, break up your cleaning tasks throughout the week. Assign specific tasks to different days, such as dusting on Mondays, vacuuming on Wednesdays and mopping on Fridays, and ultimately enjoy more of your weekend!
  5. Use Storage Solutions to Keep Things Organised:
    Invest in storage tubs and baskets to keep clutter at bay and maximize your storage space. Label containers to make it easier to find items and encourage family members to put things back where they belong (yes, we know… easier said than done).








  1. Get the Whole Family Involved:
    If you have a family, get them involved. Set aside a few minutes after dinner and get everyone in the household involved in maintaining a clean and tidy home. Assign age-appropriate chores to each family member and create a reward system to motivate everyone to pitch in.
  2. Schedule Regular Professional Cleanings:
    Even with the best efforts to keep your home clean between professional cleanings, there's no substitute for a thorough clean by trained professionals. Schedule eco-friendly regular cleaning to tackle hard-to-reach areas, remove stubborn dirt and grime and keep your home looking its best.

By incorporating these tips into your cleaning routine you will develop daily habits to keep your home clean and tidy between professional cleanings. Consistency, organisation and teamwork are the keys to maintaining a clean and welcoming living environment for you and your family.

How-to-treat-mould-naturallyHave you noticed mould growing in your bathroom, bedroom or living area? If you have, it’s incredibly important to treat the mould immediately as it can be damaging to your and your family’s health.


If you suspect mould growth in your home, it's crucial to address the issue promptly.

In this article, we look at the signs of mould, the health implications of mould, treating mould naturally and 3 easy steps to prevent mould.


Signs of Mould


Mould can spread quickly and cause damage to your property and potentially impact your health. Here are 3 common signs that suggest you may have mould:


  1. Visible growth
    The most apparent sign of mould is seeing it on walls, ceilings, bathrooms or other surfaces. Mould may appear fuzzy, slimy, or powdery in various colours such as black, green, white, or grey.
  2. Musty odour
    Mould often emits a distinctive musty, earthy smell. If you notice an unusual odour, especially in enclosed spaces like bathrooms and bedrooms, it may be an indication of mould growth.
  3. Water damage
    Areas that have experienced water damage such as leaks, floods, or excessive moisture, are susceptible to mould growth. Check walls and surrounding areas for hidden mould behind surfaces, in particular, look for:


Health Implications from Mould


Mould produces allergens, irritants and potentially toxic substances called mycotoxins. When mould spores are present in the air and when inhaled they can trigger various health problems, especially for individuals with existing respiratory conditions. Additionally, mould can trigger:



The severity of health effects is dependent on the type of mould, individual sensitivity and extent of exposure. To protect yourself and your family from any potential health implications, eliminate the mould and prevent it from reoccurring.


Treating Mould Naturally


Most of the mould cleaners you buy from supermarkets and cleaning supply stores are laden with toxic chemicals. Essentially, you are treating toxicity while exposing yourself to more toxicity from chemicals. We highly recommend taking a natural approach, which is just as effective.


All cleaning products used by Bliss Home Care have bio-bacterial and enzyme technology which keeps on working even after you have finished cleaning. These natural cleaning products are made up of “good” living bacteria to break down and liquefy soils such as fat, proteins, carbohydrates and grease while eliminating odours. These products keep on working even after you have finished cleaning.


In particular, for bathrooms, we use Shower BlitzTM. This product can be used all over your walls, shower, tiles, sink and toilet. It contains cultured bacteria that eat away and decompose hard to remove soap scum and prevent the growth of mould. The bacteria bio-degrades matter rather than mask or bleach the problem.


For more information on safe and natural cleaning products you may like to read our article, An Insight to Natural Cleaning Products which breaks down the facts on these Australian made natural cleaning products. The range has been certified by Good Environmental Choice Australia (GECA), an independent body that assesses the products to ensure they meet environmental, human health, and ethical impact criteria.


3 Steps to Prevent Mould

Preventing mould growth in your home involves keeping moisture levels under control and creating an environment where mould cannot grow and thrive. Here are the 3 most important steps to prevent mould growth in your home:


  1. Open doors and windows regularly
    This helps you control humidity levels in your home, especially in the bathroom, kitchen, laundry and bedroom. By simply opening doors and windows on a daily basis and using exhaust fans will enable moisture to escape.
  2. Address leaks immediately
    Inspect your home regularly for leaks in the roof, plumbing or walls. If you identify any leaks have them addressed immediately to prevent water build up and mould growth.
  3. Regularly clean your home
    This helps eliminate the build up of mould spores from settling on surfaces. Use natural cleaning products and focus on wet areas such as bathrooms, kitchens, and laundry. We recommend drying these areas on a regular basis for best results.


By taking these preventive measures you can significantly reduce the likelihood of mould growth in your home. This will result in a healthier living environment for you and your family. Our approach is all about being eco-friendly, local, and thoroughly professional. For you, that means house cleaning that is better value, more reliable and healthier for your family and your community.
