Thursday Tip: Cleaning Your Stove Hood

Tagged Under : ,

So I very frequently see tips and tricks from around the Internet, but as you know, not everything you see on the Internet is true and even if it is true for one person, that doesn’t necessarily mean it will be true for you/work for you.

So with that in mind, sometimes I set out to test things. Today I tested this method that I read here for cleaning your stove hood.

So let’s see if it worked for me. Here’s my before picture.


I used the vegetable oil instead of the mineral oil, since that’s what I had on hand. I did read that mineral oil was better, but I wasn’t about to go out to buy some just for this purpose. I started of with just a small amount – about dime sized – and that worked okay. I used that for a little bit, then ended up using a new spot a little bigger than a quarter. This worked much better.

I knew my stove hood was a little bit grimy, but I didn’t realize it was as dirty as it was until I saw the ick on the paper towels. It is definitely much cleaner now. Here’s my after picture so I hope you can tell the difference. I definitely feel it’s much cleaner.


So I definitely give this two thumbs up – it worked for me!
