How to clean a kitchen hood

Cooker hoods often get clogged with grease from cooking. Without regular cleaning, the appliance can break down and stop performing its functions.

Vinegar, baking soda, or dishwashing liquid will help you quickly clean the hood. Sante Plus magazine tells how to clean the kitchen hood from dirt and grease.

How to clean kitchen hood filters

For effective cleaning, you will need:

  • Sponge
  • Dry cloth
  • Protective gloves
  • Toothbrush
  • White vinegar
  • Baking soda
  • Dishwashing liquid

First of all, remove the filters. Next, mix hot water with one tablespoon of dishwashing liquid and a glass of white vinegar in a bowl. Soak the filters in it and leave them overnight. In the morning, use an old toothbrush to thoroughly clean the grids.

An additional tip: To get rid of old deposits, you can make a paste of baking soda. Thanks to its abrasive action, this powder is very effective in removing grease residue on the filter.

How to clean very dirty grids

In just three steps, you can clean even the dirtiest grids effectively.

  1. Mix boiling water with a cup of white vinegar.
  2. Soak the grids in the water and vinegar and leave them for several hours.
  3. Scrub the grids to remove any residue and traces of grease, rinse under running water, and dry with a cloth.

By the way, experts advise using laundry soap to clean grease from the filter. For greater efficiency, add a few tablespoons of baking soda to the soap solution.
