When you deep clean your kitchen, one area you don't want to neglect is your greasy hood filter above your stove. Think about it. The design of this contraption is to capture the smokey grease that occurs while cooking. Over time, the grime builds up and can make even the cleanest kitchens look dingy.
While this area of your kitchen can get pretty dirty, have no fear. There are a number of quick-fix solutions that will leave your hood filter looking like new. It just takes a few cleaning products and a few minutes of your time. Here's how to do it.

According to Clean My Space, one of the less messy ways to get rid of the grime is to allow the filter to soak in hot water and OxyClean. Simply put boiling water in a container big enough for the filter, add in a cup of OxyClean and allow it to soak for 10-30 minutes depending on the severity of the grease. Another thing the video suggests is using a steam cleaner to clean away the grease, however; this method is a bit messier.
Martha Stewart indicates that good old fashion dish soap works just as well. Remember, dish soap is designed to cut grease, which is exactly what we want to do. Simply scrub away the grime with degreaser dish soap and a sponge. The Kitchn indicates that you can throw in some baking soda as well.
Filter hoods can definitely get dirty over time. Cleaning them out periodically will help keep your kitchen looking great and reduce any odors associated with the build up of grease. With easy solutions like these, why not give it a shot?
