How to clean the filters in a kitchen hood
For effective cleaning, you will need:
- a sponge;
- a dry cloth;
- protective gloves;
- white vinegar;
- baking soda;
- dishwashing liquid.
First remove the filters. Then mix hot water in a container with one tablespoon of dishwashing liquid and a glass of white vinegar. Soak the filters and leave overnight. In the morning, use an old toothbrush to thoroughly clean the grids.
