Use a few drops of Vegetable Oil on a paper towel to clean the greasy stuff off your stove hood - not sure how it gets up there in the first place, but it cuts RIGHT THROUGH IT! Lot easier than using those chemicals... especially since it's above your food and right in front of your face :P
1 Container with an airtight lid 4 sponges cut in half (from $1 store) 1 cup of your favorite fabric softener 2 cups water WHAT TO DO: Mix the water and fabric softener in plastic container. Add the cut sponges so they can soak in the mixture. When ready to use, squeeze the excess liquid from 1 sponge and place into the dryer with your wet clothes. Run the dryer cycle as normal. Once complete place the now dry sponge back into the container of liquid for use next time.
