I have a range hood over my stove. I am in the process of trying to clean
the spots of grease that have stuck on. I don't want to use anything
abrasive as it will take the finish off the range hood. Any suggestions
other than picking at it with my fingernail?
Small brush and Dawn dishwashing detergent. If this doesn't work
well, try a 50/50 mix of Dawn and household ammonia. To allow this
mixture to work (so you don't), hold a paper towel on the surface,
spray this mixture onto it, then wait an hour which should soften the
grease. You could also try a baking-soda paste. Please let us know
what worked for you.
Yes, the fumes are toxic. That's why I suggested you ventilate "VERY well".
Yes, brake fluid removes paint. However, I didn't suggest using brake fluid; I
suggested brake cleaner. I use it on guns and it doesn't damage the finish. I
don't get any on the wood though.... just the metal.
