The oven and extractor hood are perhaps the most polluted places in the kitchen. With the help of our tips, you will be able to clean the surface of the kitchen hood much faster and easier.
We recently told you about the way to clean the oven, and today is the time to learn how to clean the kitchen hood without applying excessive force, from the outside, from the inside, and how to clean the grates so that there is not a drop of grease left on them. Turn on the music, gather your hair, put on your gloves - and get to work!
How to clean the kitchen hood from the outside
It is very easy to do this. You can use regular dishwashing detergent for cleaning.
Lubricate a soft sponge with the product and apply it to the outside of the hood. Wait 10-15 minutes for the grease to soak and rinse off. Wipe dry with a cloth to avoid streaks.
The secret to a clean hood lies in regular maintenance. For general cleaning, use a mixture of cleaning vinegar and water in equal parts. Do not apply it directly, rather spray on a microfiber cloth. You will see the difference! It is better to clean in a ventilated area, since vinegar has a specific smell.
How to clean a kitchen hood from the inside
To clean the inside of the hood, you will need a degreaser like KH7, Forest Green, Cillit Bang, or whatever.
Step 1 Remove the filters, spray them with a degreaser and follow the manufacturer's instructions. Clean as usual.
Step 2. Spray the inside. Wait for a while until the fat becomes soft.
Step 3. Wipe it with a dishwashing sponge and rinse it with a cloth soaked in hot water. Dry thoroughly and reinstall the filters.
How to quickly clean kitchen hood grates
Carefully remove the grates and lower them into a sink of hot water. Then add a tablet that is used for dishwashers and leave for 5 minutes. Next, remove the fat from them, and they will shine!
How to remove grease from a cooker hood with baking soda
If you don't have a degreaser handy, or you just prefer homemade, then use baking soda.
Place three tablespoons of baking soda in a bowl and add a little water to make a smooth paste.
Apply the paste with a sponge to the most oily areas and let it sit for it to work. Remove the remaining paste with fat with a brush.
Rinse the surface with a damp sponge and dry with a soft cloth.
