HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
2015 rings in my new motivation to organize, clean, get healthy and eat right!
The motivation dwindles by lunch time and is almost null as I’m scarfing down nachos for dinner – but right now it’s still morning and I believe in possibility!
I was surfing Pinterest this morning and I came across an image that showed how to clean your range hood.
The article suggested you use acetone to wipe it down.
I did a little research to see if I was going to ruin my hood and it turns out it’s true!
Acetone is an organic solvent that does not contain any chlorine so it is actually suggested as a means of removing grease from stainless steel.
I read several of these to be sure they were in agreement:
I’m going to cover my butt here and say “please test on an inconspicuous area first”.
Who has acetone in the house? You probably do!
Check out your nail polish remover.
I’ll show you proof on my hood.
Usually I just wipe it down with my ENJO cloth and sometimes marble paste to get a nice shine – but I’ll be honest and say it’s been a couple of months and the grease has started to build again.
Once I finished my acetone wipe-down, I used my kitchen ENJO to clean off any residue that might be left behind and then dried the hood completely.
Pretty impressive right?
This took less than 10 minutes start to finish and the shine was well worth the investment. Grease flecks are all gone!
The irony of this – I had to put an overlay on my fingernail in photo 3 because my nail polish is so chipped and mangled I didn’t want you to see. lol
Have a great one!
