Clean the grease out of your Oven Hood Vent!

Published 03/14/2012 by moonstrucksiren

Haul out your biggest pot, fill it with water and bring it to a boil.  Then add 1/2 cup of BAKING SODA….VERY SLOWLY!

Literally, you have to add it about a tablespoon at a time because it IMMEDIATELY fizzes up quite alarmingly! (The fizz goes right away.)

Then take your caked-with-grease filter and submerge it in the pot. (Well, 1/2 of it anyway.)

All I had to go on were the two lines written in that comment above….but honestly...that’s all you need to know.

I filled an empty spray bottle with 1 part ammonia & 1 part HOT water, sprayed it LIBERALLY on the stain, laid the

clean white towel on top of it and started ironing away!  Within literally SECONDS…this is what the WHITE towel

looked like.

What You’ll Need:  A piece of wood and a small nail. The other blogger used a clothes pin, but I used this little ruler –

  The wood cannot be so flimsy that it will break when you hold a frame from the nail.

How to Make It:  Drive the nail through the wood just enough that you will leave a mark on the wall when pressed.

Hang your mirror/picture on the nail, supporting it as needed.

Put it in place on the wall and push.  You’ll have a little mark on your wall where the nail should go. Hammer one in and voila!

  You now have the perfect way to hang your picture and no measuring needed!
