An Aussie mum has created the ultimate cleaning kit, using just five cheap and very effective products that can be purchased from your local supermarket or hardware store.

Taking to social media recently, the woman claimed while they aren’t the usual products seen in cleaning arsenal, they certainly do the trick. And even better — they won’t cost you a fortune. Posting to Facebook, she said she is now “obsessed with cleaning the entire house” after discovering how well they do the job, the Daily Mail reports.

While Napisan is usually used to remove stains from fabric, according to the mum it’s also the answer to a sparkling clean oven.

Simply combine the powder with hot water and use a cloth to wipe the solution inside the oven. Meanwhile, for the racks, fill the laundry sink or bathtub with the mixture and let them soak for 10 hours.

The powder costs $22 from Woolworths.
