How to clean stove hood
use mineral oil to clean oil splatter on stoves. put a couple drops of mineral oil on a paper towel. Wipe the paper towel over the dirty surface, and watch the gunk come right off.When you are done cleaning, simply wipe down the surfaces one more time with a new paper towel. This leaves the surface coated lightly in oil, which makes future oil splatters much, much easier to clean up.

How to freshen your towels and get rid of that mildew stink - on Classy Clutter - Spring Cleaning Day 2 - 1 cup white vinegar w/ hot water or try 1/2 cup baking soda w/ hot water, add dryer sheet when drying
Getting Rid Of Mildew Stink It’s the worst! It’s even worse when you go over to someone else’s house, and reluctantly dry off with one of their stinky mildew towels. In fact, there is a particular hair salon that I’ve been to that is famous for their mildew towels. I don’t know how this happens unless they’re leaving their towels in the washing machine for days before switching them, but I think they should read this tip! It’s so easy and just requires one ingredient.
