‘These are the five kitchen cleaning tasks I recommend doing weekly – I know some of you will say some of these should be daily – but unless you’ve done some heavy duty cooking you really can get away with weekly,’ Kacie posted.
The first thing Kacie said she does is she scrubs the stove top.
‘I’m talking a decent scrub,’ she said.
The cleaner favours a microfibre cloth and some dishwashing liquid – which she said is often the replacement cleaning product for almost everything in your household.
Following this, Kacie moves on to the sink, where she uses the same tools.
‘This will stop any brown build up from appearing,’ she said.
When it comes to the cabinet doors and splashback, all you need to do is wipe them gently with a cloth and some dishwashing liquid.
Finally, Kacie makes sure to mop the floor in order to keep them looking neat and shiny.

Thousands who saw the video were quick to thank the cleaner for sharing it, while others said there were some of the chores that should be done more or less frequently.
‘Cupboards are fine spot cleaning and deep cleaning monthly (for me),’ one woman wrote.
‘I do these every day and a big clean up once a month,’ another added.

Previously, Kacie detailed exactly how she cleans a kitchen from top to bottom, and how she gives her clients’ homes the ‘wow factor’ with a secret product.
The first thing you have to do is clear absolutely everything away so you can get past and underneath various items.
‘Right, I’m going to walk you through how I do a regular clean on a kitchen,’ Kacie said in her video.
‘I start by putting away all the mess and washing the dishes. I don’t want to see anyone cleaning like this and just surface wiping, you’ve always got to get behind stuff and under stuff – that’s why it needs to go away.’
Following this, the cleaner said she gets ‘everything off the stovetop’ and lets it soak in the sink while she does the rest of the kitchen.
‘Go from up high and move your way down through the splashback,’ Kacie said.
‘Sometimes the splashback is a window and then you get to the stovetop. Give this a really good wipe down and then polish it.’
The product Kacie swears by is For All ($23.95), which she uses to clean the entire kitchen.
The $23 buy describes itself as a ‘safe and effective liquid detergent made using naturally derived surfactants and scented using only pure essential oils’.
Product information said For All will replace ‘more than 15 different surface cleaners in your house’.
‘I love the simplicity of using only one product for the whole kitchen,’ Kacie said.
She said if your stovetop is an induction plate, you should give it a ‘good scrub’.
Lastly, she does the window seals, counters and leaves the sink until the last moment.
‘To avoid that sink brown staining, I give it a good scrub at least once a fortnight,’ Kacie said.
‘And then, when I’m in a client’s house and I want to leave it with a “wow factor”, I polish it with some baby oil and a microfibre cloth.’
Baby oil used on a soft, dry cloth works wonders at removing streaks from shiny surfaces like stainless steel or enamel – but it won’t actually sanitise the surface.
