An interior stylist has revealed her favourite cleaning methods for leaving floors sparkling clean without using harsh chemicals.

Liz Amaya, from Brisbane, shared a video with her 100,000 Instagram followers and demonstrated three easy home hacks.

In the short clip, she used bi-carbonate soda on her carpet, a DIY home spray on tiled floors and whitening toothpaste on a microfibre cloth to remove marks.

The first hack involved sprinkling bi-carbonate soda onto carpet to absorb odours and stains, then vacuuming the carpet after 20 minutes

Bicarbonate soda on carpet

To absorb odours and stains in carpets, Liz sprinkled a small amount of bi-carb soda onto the surface of the carpet using a handheld kitchen sieve.

She left the powder on the carpet for 20 minutes then vacuumed the carpet as usual.

Bicarbonate soda is an effective abrasive powder that also acts as a fantastic natural deodoriser.

Next, she recommended using whitening toothpaste and a microfibre cloth to remove marks on tiled floors

The gentle but abrasiveness of the toothpaste and cloth work perfectly together to remove stains without scratching the tiles.

For the final cleaning hack, Liz made a lemon and vinegar floor spray by combining equal parts of vinegar, lemon and water in a bottle

She combined the ingredients by gently shaking the bottle then sprayed the liquid onto the dirty floors before mopping
