Nothing is more important to us than safe products for you and your family, which is why we searched high and low for what we now feel is the best choice.


Along side our homemade eco products we have chosen to work with the Citrus Resources range brought to you by Oats Laboratories. Here's what they have to say about their products and why we love them.


In 1992 a new concept of ALL NATURAL, highly biodegradable cleaning products for commercial use was introduced, called Citrus Resources.


These products help to sustain the environment and are safer to use yet they are powerful enough for commercial use. We believe that it is time for all responsible people to start doing something about helping to protect the environment now - NOT when forced to by legislation, as then it will be too late.


Citrus Resources has taken simple, renewable and harvested citrus crops and other plantation by products and turned them into natural, highly biodegradable cleaning products, many of which are approved by Good Environmental Choice Australia. More information can be found on their site directly here. Oats Citrus

Bathroom, kitchen and all purpose

Working in combination with some of our own eco DIY products we have chosen 2 of the Citrus Commercial grade products from Oats. For bathroom we choose Zest, which is a unique product that offers total washroom and toilet care. Its fiercely effective, yet gentle action removes lime, soap scum, body fats, hard water scale, rust and waste products from all washroom surfaces and is also suitable to cleaning tiled floors. Zest is highly biodegradable, non toxic and can be safely used in septic systems.


The second product chosen from Oats, and also the most aromatic product we have ever used is ORANGE SQUIRT! It is a fantastic kitchen degreaser and when diluted down a little more, is the perfect all purpose spray and wipe for around your home (including granite). It is an antibacterial disinfectant that kills germs and deodorises leaving behind a fresh grapefruit fragrance.

Timber flooring

Timber flooring, especially Solid Timber Floors are a big investment for any household and it's one we take seriously here at Bird and Broom.


The product we have chosen for this is not an eco product but a specifically designed PH neutral wood floor cleaner, that both cleans and shines your floors. Read more here Bona spray mop
