Most people know you can throw a range hood filter into the dishwasher and see it come out sparkling clean. However, whenever you clean the filter, you should clean the fan, too, because grease and dirt can build up on the blades as well.
Things You'll Need
- Warm water
- Cloth, sponge, or scrubber
- Vinegar, if necessary
Take the cover off the range hood fan and clean it in warm soapy water.
Clean the filter, if necessary. Throw it in the dishwasher if it is metal for the best results.
Using a cloth, sponge, or scrubber, wipe the fan blades free of grease.
For tough grease, you may need to use an acidic cleaner such as vinegar to cut the grease.
Dry the fan blades thoroughly.
Replace the filter and cover and you're done.
