Cleaning stove exhaust filters

There is one particular area in the kitchen that gets overlooked when cleaning… the exhaust fan over your stove.  Think about all the greasy buildup that comes from your cooking.  Mickie from Los Angeles California asked me about cleaning this often forgotten cleaning challenge.  “What product should I use to clean the wire mesh filters in my kitchen in the stove exhaust?  They have lots of grease build up.”

Mickie you have two choices CLR BBQ Grill Cleaner or CLR Grease Magnet.  CLR BBQ Grill Cleaner works on stainless steel, steel and porcelain enamel and is biodegradable, non-flammable as well as non-toxic.  To clean your filters, remove the filter or filters from the exhaust fan and place them in a clean container, spray the surface with CLR BBQ Grill Cleaner, wipe the surface with a sponge and rinse the filter or filters with cold water.  Grease Magnet can be used the same way as our BBQ Grill Cleaner, but if you find that your filters have caked on grease use Grease Magnet.  To remove the grease, soak the filter or filters in Grease Magnet and allow the solution to sit on the filters for about five minutes or until you see the grease running off of the filters.  If need be, scrub the filters with a stiff bristled brush and rinse with clean, cold water.

Cleaning soap buildup from a shower door

Michelle from Waverly Tennessee contacted me after trying CLR Bath & Kitchen Cleaner for the first time.  “I had soap buildup on my glass shower door.  I have tried every bathroom cleaner on the shelf at our local Walmart to clean it and nothing worked.  Your product, CLR Bath & Kitchen Cleaner, was on the bottom shelf and I always overlooked it.  Well they must have restocked their shelves that night because I saw it and figured I would give it a try.  OMG!!!  When I sprayed it, the foam started to run down the door and the soap was gone.  I could not believe my eyes.  I wiped it down with my sponge with no scrubbing.  I rinsed it with water and dried it off with a towel.  My boyfriend thought I spent all day on it because it was so clean.  I had to show him on my kids’ shower and he was as shocked as I was.  I now will not get anything else but your product.  Thank you so much.  Need to figure out how to get your product off the bottom shelf up at eye level.”

Michelle I’m so happy that they restocked the cleaning supplies the night you went to Walmart.  I do hope you know that CLR Bath & Kitchen Cleaner is about the only product you need to clean your bathroom and kitchen.  You can use it on white grout and tile, your sink, countertops, toilet and, as long as it is not treated with a synthetic coating, to clean the soap residue from your shower enclosure.  Just remember, always use CLR Bath & Kitchen Cleaner in a well-ventilated area and test a hidden area of the surface before beginning to clean.  Never leave the solution on a surface for more than two or three minutes and always rinse thoroughly when you are finished.
