Bunnings shopper stuns with $12 cleaning tip: 'Best stuff ever'

Say goodbye to greasy rangehoods forever.

When was the last time you cleaned your rangehood filters? If you can't remember, you're probably not alone, with most people disliking the painstakingly annoying job.

There seems to be no easy way to get the grease off without a whole lot of scrubbing. However, one Aussie mum recently shared her seriously super simple method for getting the job done and people can't get enough of it.

Posting to the Mums Who Clean Facebook group, the woman shared her solution with another mum who had been struggling with the chore.

The woman revealed her secret is the “amazing” $12 Rangehood Filter Clean spray from Bunnings or The Good Guys, saying it has worked extremely well every time and delivers great results with zero scrubbing.

"Spray it on, leave 10 mins then rinse off with hot tap water,” she said, adding that it's now her go-to method, because 'not all filters are dishwasher safe'.

Dozens of her fellow mums agreed it was a “brilliant” product too.

“Best stuff ever - wouldn't use anything else!!” one mum said, while another echoed, “100% this, it's the only thing I'll use”.

Meanwhile, others offered up a range of different methods for washing the hard-to-clean filters, everything from putting them in the dishwasher to soaking them in Napisan. One person even suggested spraying them with WD40 before rinsing them clean!

“Soak in warm water with Napisan vanish oxi advance overnight and the grease just comes off,” one person offered.

“Dishwasher I have been doing it for 40 years,” another said.

However, several people warned against placing them in the dishwasher, explaining that dishwasher tablets could destroy certain rangehoods.

“Be so careful cleaning these," one mum warned. "So many people pop them in the dishwasher and destroy them."

“I wrecked mine by putting them in the dishwasher," confirmed another. "Don't do it.”

That's why the safest way to clean them is using the spray from Bunnings.

“It’s made to clean and degrease without damaging them,” explained another savvy cleaner.
