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.

  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.

Bliss Home Care | Natural Floor CleaningLet’s face it, our floors are one area of the home where dust, dirt, crumbs and bacteria constantly collect and live. This may be particularly concerning if you have young children who spend lots of time playing, rolling, crawling and even licking the floors! So let’s take a look at how natural floor cleaning solutions can keep your family home clean and safe.

If you’ve ever read the labels on commercial cleaning products you will be horrified by the chemicals and toxins that are included in these products. Not only are they harmful to the environment, but there has been much research to suggest they are harmful to our health and can cause serious health concerns over time.

Natural floor cleaning solutions are incredibly easy to create and use in your home. Most of the ingredients you most likely already have in your cupboards, so why not create a solution that is natural and safe?

Here we share our top tips for all kinds of floors in your home. These natural floor cleaning solutions are cost effective, easy to make and so much safer for your and your family’s health.

Timber Floors

Timber floors are known for being low maintenance and a great flooring choice for those who suffer from allergies. There are many different finishes on timber floors from high gloss to matt and laminate. Firstly vacuum or sweep your floors. Never saturate timber floors with water or leave water sitting on the timber as this will cause damage when it is absorbed by the timber. Instead use a light damp mop as part of your regular clean to get the best results and maintain your beautiful timber floors.


Mix one part white vinegar to four parts warm water (250ml vinegar to 1 litre warm water) and lightly spray on a microfiber mop for the best finish. You can also add a couple of drops of essential oil to the mixture if you’d like to have a nice fragrance throughout your home. Open doors and windows to ventilate the air and ensure the timber floor dries well.

Tiled Floors

Tiled floors are very durable and give a very sleek, modern look to any home. When maintained regularly your tiles and grout will keep looking new over time. Most tiles are made from ceramic or porcelain and are very easy to keep clean. Firstly sweep or vacuum your tiled floors and then proceed with the following natural cleaning solution.


Fill your mop bucket with warm water and add quarter cup of white vinegar. Use a clean mop (our favourite is a microfiber mop), wring out as much water for a streak free finish. You can also add your favourite essential oil to the mixture if you want to leave your home smelling fresh and nice. If you have heavily soiled floors or dried stains you can add a few drops of dishwashing liquid to the mixture for more effective cleaning. Remember to change your water frequently while mopping for the best finish. Open doors and windows to ventilate the air and allow for faster drying.

Note: avoid using sponge mops as these tend to retain more water and the water gets pushed into the grout lines.

Carpets & Rugs

Carpets are cosy and comfy and normally used in bedrooms and living rooms. Rugs are also a great way to add warmth to floorboards or tiled areas, however carpets and rugs are renowned for collecting dust, crumbs and dirt particles.

As part of your regular clean vacuum the carpet or rug and if you want to give it a spruce up or have some stains to clear then try this natural solution.


Mix equal parts of white vinegar and water. Spray on stain and allow to sit for 5-10 minutes before scrubbing clean with a soft brush. If you have a stubborn stain try adding 1 or 2 drops of dishwashing liquid to the mixture and scrub gently with a soft brush. Wipe clean with a clean cloth and allow to dry completely by opening windows to ventilate the room.

Note: try the solution on a small patch of carpet to ensure it does not discolour prior to using.

Let’s take a closer look at why the technology behind these products is so effective and why the products work so effectively…

Bio Bacterial & Enzyme Technology  

These biological cleaning products are made up of “good” living bacteria to break down and liquefy soils such as fat, proteins, carbohydrates and grease while simultaneously eliminating odours. When this type of bacteria cleaning product is applied, the microorganisms begin to digest the waste and the “good” bacteria in turn multiply. The soil is broken down and continues to break down the soil into smaller pieces, until there is nothing left.

Bacteria use the enzymes they produce to break down complex waste into simple compounds, which it then consumes, thereby completely eliminating grime, waste and odours.

The bio bacterial cleaner makes cleaning quicker and easier. The product keeps on working even after you have finished cleaning.

As always, nature provides the answers. For good health and a naturally clean home, look no further. To purchase or learn more about these products click here.
