Who can afford gas these days?!?!
Oh, my........gas prices are ridiculous.
We have to find ways to entertain ourselves.
We have to keep our minds active.
We have to think outside the box.
So we do home projects.
So Charlie had Good Friday off, last week, and we got lots of stuff done around here.
I had noticed my filters were getting nasty in the vent above my stove so I went right to Pinterest to look for a cheap home remedy.
Yep, I found exactly what I was looking for and better yet-it worked!!
So I am passing on this wonderful info to all of you.
Here's what you'll need.
1. Nasty greasy filters from your range hood-YUCK!
2. Baking Soda
4. A pot of boiling water.
5. Too much time on your hands (giggle giggle)
Oops-I had forgotten to take pictures of the nasty metal filters until I had them halfway in the boiling pot of water, but you can still see how nasty the top halves are.
Not too much, though, because it will instantly bubble out and you'll have a huge mess or could be burned. Use common sense on this part. I even sprinkled baking soda directly on the filters themselves just to speed up the process.
So I took the filters.
Next I got my Dawn dish soap and gave them a quick clean up to remove any excess grease/sludge and it came right off.
Do you see how clean they are?
So I quickly cleaned that mess up before it made me crazy.
My Pinterest project worked!
I have had a couple of Pinterest projects that did not work before and that always feels wasteful to me when I have wasted ingredients, supplies, and especially my time.
This one worked and we were both elated.
Who knew we could have so much nerdy fun, too?!?!
Charlie and I were both intrigued watching the drippy grease drip off in the water. We were almost hypnotized by it-practically in a trance, and then I would sprinkle baking soda in the concoction again and we were like kids at Christmas!
The longer you've been married to one another the geekier you become with one another.
We're not to proud or too ashamed to admit that boiling pots with baking soda dripping old grease off of vent filters was our entertainment for the day. It was actually one of our highlights.
