Cleaning Your Exhaust Fan Cover (It’s Super Easy!)

I had been putting off cleaning my exhaust fan cover (the one over the stove) for ages because, well, because it was kind of manky and greasy and gross. I’ll admit, last time it got cleaned I’m pretty sure my MIL did it for me.

Totally gross, right.

But, since I’m doing my big top to bottom clean of the house over the next couple of months I didn’t want to leave any stone unturned, or surface uncleaned.

It turns out, I had nothing to procrastinate about as it is actually super easy to clean. Here’s how I did it:

1. Fill kitchen sink with hot water and vinegar.

2. Take off fan cover and place in hot water. Let it soak for about half an hour.

3. Make up a paste of bicarb soda and water and wipe it over cover using a damp cloth.

4. Replace clean white cover.

I could have left it like that as it looked quite good, but I decided to get in between the little gaps to make it extra clean. I just used a cotton tip and a little more of the bicarb paste. It was a bit fiddly, but not too much extra work.
