An annual deep clean is an opportunity to tackle surfaces inside and out, and leap into spring feeling fresh!

It’s a daunting job, but you’ll be rewarded with a house that’s sparkling, shipshape and ready for summer entertaining.
Grab a high-quality cleaning product like those from New Zealand brand 30 Seconds. They’ll have you covered for every corner and cranny.
Household dirt comes in many forms. The toughest kinds to clean include mould and mildew, which are typically found hanging out in bathrooms, laundries and other humid spots. Off-putting musty smell aside, mould can be harmful, triggering conditions such as asthma. Cue 30 Seconds ‘Mould Off’, which treats and eradicates mould and mildew from hard surfaces including timber, painted walls and ceilings, tiles, benchtops, sinks, floors and glass – no damaging scrubbing required. Apply Mould Off (following the safety instructions on the pack), then simply wipe with a sponge and rinse.
To tackle the soap-scummed bath, sink and shower, reach for 30 Seconds shower cleaner, which inhibits future mould growth into the bargain.
30 Seconds’ Spray & Walk Away is as easy as it sounds, it’s the perfect quick fix if you’re running low on time. For more, check out our full range of 30 Seconds products.
