Despite the cold weather we are having at the moment, spring will be here before we know it. Spring in my house means spring cleaning and this year, I am determined to get organised and de-clutter as much as possible. I am here today with a #HomeHack to show you a quick and easy way to clean your cooker hood filters so you can get one job out of the way before spring even arrives! The team at Vorwerk asked me to take part in their #HomeHacks campaign along with some other Midlands based bloggers so you can get your spring cleaning off to a flying start!
The picture above shows my cooker hood filters before I cleaned them. I used to clean them quite regularly but due to being so busy, I have fallen out of the habit recently. To clean my cooker hood filters I used Brillo Multi-Use Soap Pads, Natural White Vinegar and lots of hot soapy water. I did it in the wrong order in the video above but the best way to clean your cooker hood filters is by soaking them in a mixture of hot soapy water and white vinegar overnight then use the soap pads and a fresh bowl of hot soapy water the next day to get any remaining grease and dirt off. The white vinegar really helps to remove the grease and the soap pads ensures that nothing gets left behind.
The picture shows what my cooker hood filters looked like after they were cleaned. The side which spent more time in the white vinegar solution before being cleaned with the soap pads has a noticeably difference and is a lot whiter and cleaner. I will be putting the other half of cooking hood filters in the white vinegar and hot soapy water mix to finish cleaning them off properly. This is a job that I will be doing more regularly from now on as it is really easy to do, does not take very much time and does not use any harsh chemicals. However, do be careful with the white vinegar and water mix especially around children as it is acidic and could still do damage to sensitive skin. Although I do not wear gloves when cleaning my cooker hood filters, it is best too as it they will protect your hands and skin.
What cleaning jobs do you not enjoy doing?
Thank you to Vorwerk for encouraging me to get started on my spring cleaning early this year!
