A kitchen hood should be cleaned regularly. If this is not done, dust, grease, and food residues will cover the surface with such a thick layer of dirt that it will be very difficult to clean.

If you don't want to use harmful chemicals, you can try some effective folk life hacks. Read the OBOZREVATEL article on how to clean a kitchen hood from grease.

There are several effective methods for cleaning. The necessary ingredients:

  • vinegar
  • lemon or citric acid
  • soap (preferably laundry soap)

Citric acid

Cleaning experts recommend using lemon juice or citric acid. Pour warm water into a container, add a little liquid soap, and lemon juice. Soak the filters for several hours and wipe them with a sponge.

Life hack with table vinegar

Place the air filter in a large bowl or wide-bottomed basin. Pour white vinegar over the grille until it is completely submerged. Leave it for 10 minutes and then add 2 tablespoons of baking soda. A pronounced chemical reaction should occur. After that, remove the filter from the bowl and remove any remaining dirt with a sponge or brush. Lemon juice can be used instead of vinegar.

How to clean the hood from the Inside

Baking soda and laundry soap will help clean the inside of the range hood. For a longer-lasting effect, you can also use vinegar. Dissolve laundry soap in hot water, add baking soda, and apply the product to dirty surfaces. After 30 minutes, rinse with cool water and wipe with a sponge.

You can also wipe the interior surfaces with white vinegar, lemon juice, or a citric acid solution. Simply apply these products to the soiled areas and wipe thoroughly with a cloth. The hood should be thoroughly rinsed of acid residue.
