When it comes to items around the old household that need cleaning, we’d bet you’re more likely to take a scrub brush to your cupboards or toilets than you are your range hood. But while we won’t downplay the importance of a clean commode, that area on top of your oven can get pretty darned gnarly.
With all the oil, grease and dirt that collects up there, the range hood can become both unsanitary and unsightly. And unlike the inside of your oven (bless you, self-cleaning function), guests will actually see all that range hood dirt when they stop by for some tea. Or whatever they happen to be doing at your place.
Luckily, it doesn’t take much elbow grease to actually clean those suckers. In fact there’s a simple step-by-step process that will make it one of your easiest, and dare we say most satisfactory, chores around the household.
What you need
- Scrub brush
- Dish soap
How it’s done
- Pop the ranges off and place them in the sink.
- Sprinkle with baking powder, then drizzle with dish soap.
- Fill the sink with piping hot – think boiling – water, and let it all soak for 10 minutes.
- Drain the sink and scrub away.
- Dry and replace.
Yup, it’s that easy. Don’t believe us? Check out the video above.
Now if only the toilets were that simple…
