Be it making a delicious main course, or just fixing up some fries – we’ve all had our fair share of cooking experiments in the kitchen. And through it all, the chimney remains a constant companion – silently taking in the smoke and grease, and adding to the overall hygiene of the kitchen. But over time, we get used to its contribution and forget that the mesh inside needs care.
When was the last time you checked the chimney specifically to clean the mesh filter? We all like to clean it from the outside, but the inside matters too. By the time we realize that our chimney mesh deserves better than being left to rust and grease up, the kitchen already smells. No-one really wants that. Sure, you can call professionals to clean the chimney mesh, but why go through all that trouble and expense, when the solution is readily available?
There are different ways to clean the same thing, and you know that. However, we are talking about getting real with the mesh while watching our budget. The objective is to avoid elaborate cleaning tools or anything of that sort.
Here’s a general list of what you might need for cleaning the chimney mesh
Although the common vinegar or baking soda solution might work as cleaning agents, WD-40 is practically a miracle in a can. It not only gets right under the layers of grease and muck on the mesh but also polishes and protects it for later. This is one hardware product you absolutely need in your kitchen.
Try not to wait until it starts to smell. While WD-40 does leave a protective coating over the mesh after cleaning it, eventually, there will be a build-up of grease. Mesh filters collect dust, grease, and grime rather easily. So it is recommended that the chimney mesh is cleaned at least once a week to keep it fresh and functional.
