Kitchen cleaning tips

The easiest way to clean a sink

Pop your rubber gloves on then drizzle the cream cleanser over the sink area. Use a sponge to spread the cleaner over the surfaces and let it sit for two minutes. Scrub any dried-on debris and then wash off with water. Wipe the sink dry.

Kitchen cleaning tips

Clean your rangehood

As you cook, all the oil particles rise in the air – most will be caught by the rangehood but some will work their way around this area, where they will collect dust. Over time, this can build up and become really tricky to remove.

To clean your rangehood, put rubber gloves on and then remove the filters from your rangehood. You can either put them in the dishwasher or wash manually using an appliance-friendly cleaner. Simply spray it on, rinse with hot water and then scrub with a sponge. Once all the grease has come off, wipe dry with a microfibre cloth.

Spray a surface cleaner on the rangehood and wipe off oil and dust using a damp cloth. Repeat until the entire rangehood area is clean. When your filters are dry, put them back for a good-as-new rangehood. 

Kitchen cleaning tips

Clean the stovetop

Remove the racks from your stovetop and place in the sink. Squeeze some dish soap onto a sponge and use to wipe down each rack. Leave to dry in the sink.

Remove all the parts on top of the rings and then spray the stovetop with appliance-friendly cleaner. Wipe with a sponge, and then with a dry microfibre cloth to remove streaks. Replace racks and parts for a job well done!

Kitchen cleaning tips

Descale your kettle

Descaling can quickly and easily remove limescale and calcium build-up in your kettle, allowing your kettle to continue running at optimal level.

To do this, you’ll need an appliance descaler. There are a wide variety of these, including some that contain natural citric acid and are non-toxic, biodegradable and environmentally friendly.

Once you’ve chosen your product, follow the instructions to descale your appliance. Most will require you to flush out your kettle with a few rounds of boiling water before using again.

Kitchen cleaning tips

De-clutter under your sink

Remove everything from under your sink. Wipe down any shelving with a sponge and all-purpose cleaner. Affix adhesive hooks to the inside of your door and leave to stick for a few hours.

Group your cleaning products and place in storage tubs, so they stay upright, neat, tidy and easy to find.

Once a few hours have passed, hang gloves, scrubbing brushes and other lightweight items from the hooks on the inside of the door.

Health & Safety

Please make sure you use all equipment appropriately and safely when following the advice in these D.I.Y. videos. You need to be familiar with how to use equipment safely and follow the instructions that came with the equipment. If you are unsure, you may feel it is safest to consult an expert, such as the manufacturer or an expert Bunnings Team Member.

Grave health hazards are linked to asbestos, which may be in homes built up to 1990. Health hazards may result from exposure to lead-based paints in older materials and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber. For information on the dangers of asbestos, lead-based paint and CCA treated timber and tips for dealing with these materials contact your local council's Environmental Health Officer or visit our Health & Safety page. You can also use a simple test kit from Bunnings to indicate the presence of lead-based paint.
